Following Darwin’s footsteps in Mount Tarn

A hike over the extreme south side of the Brunswick Peninsula.


Come to know the extreme south side of the Brunswick Peninsula, one of the last zones of the american continental mass of land, Mount Tarn, once climbed by Charles Darwin. This trip is aimed to people who loves mountains and nature.

Mount Tarn offers a unique nature, very peculiar with big landscapes that manifest patagonia in all its beauty. With a height of 830 mts, composed by forest of Coihue (Nothofagus dombeyi), winter’s bark and peat (where dominance is taken by Sphagnum magellanicum) among other interesting plant species. On top we find nude rock where the strong patagonian winter can be felt.

The tour starts at 7.30 am, time in which we pick up our passengers at their respective places. Around 8.30 to 9.00 am we arrive to the shore of the river San Pedro, where we start our walk. Difficulty for this mount is medium because it’s around 6 to 7 hours of walk both ways from the van and back.

We are back to Punta Arenas around 18.00 hrs. Before endind our trip we stop to enjoy a snack at a local family cafeteria located at Agua Fresca.
