Appreciate the panoramic beauty of the Strait of Magellan and the Brunswick Peninsula
With our Trekking Mount Tarn tour, you will get to know a mountain range approximately 850 meters high, formed by rocks of marine origin. It is located at the southern end of the Brunswick Peninsula, about 70 kilometers south of Punta Arenas. The soil is very humid due to the high rainfall in the region, therefore the climate is typical of Patagonia, temperate, cold, with high humidity.
Start of the Trekking Mount Tarn
The Trekking Mount Tarn begins with the pick-up of the passengers at the hotel, and then we head south to Punta Arenas. On our way, we will pass by Fort Bulnes at kilometer 57, but we will not be able to visit it, since our excursion goes even further south. Upon reaching the beginning of the trail, we will listen to the instructions of our guide and then begin our trek.
From the beginning, we will cross a leafy forest with species such as Magallanes coihue, cinnamon, Guaitecas cypress, peat bogs and creeping plants. After approximately 4 hours we will reach the summit of Mount Tarn. From the summit, you will be able to see the Strait of Magellan, the San Isidro lighthouse, the Dawson Islands, Tierra del Fuego and the great Darwin Mountain Range. We will rest and enjoy the views at the top, approximately 30 minutes, before starting our return from our Trekking Mount Tarn along the same path.
