Go south on Patag­o­nia trek

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - REAL ESTATE - By Phil Marty


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.
