Go south on Patagonia trek
If you’re a fan of getting-away-from-it-all vacations, Lost World Adventures offers the Dientes Circuit Tour. The six-day/five-night trek explores Navarino Island in Chile's Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America. This is about as far south as you can get before hitting the Antarctic, and some call this the best trek in Patagonia. The package starts with a flight from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Puerto Williams, the island’s diminutive capital. This is the embarkation point for the 3 1⁄2-day trek among the craggy peaks of the Dientes Circuit. The hiking, as much as six hours a day, will offer views of the Beagle Channel and Cape Horn while passing picturesque mountain lakes. Three nights will be spent camping, and the other two nights are at Lakutaia Lodge in Puerto Williams. Cost of the package is $1,677 per person, double occupancy. That includes the flight to/from Puerto Williams, lodging, all meals, including Chilean wine, all camping gear, bilingual guides and porters for personal equipment. The trip can be extended to include kayaking the Magellan Strait. Info: 800-999-0558, tinyurl.com/y6vq2n7g Phil Marty is a freelance reporter.
