We will do a full day hike to the summit of Mount Tarn where is located in the southern part of Brunswick Peninsula close to Cape Froward. I will pick you up at your hotel/accomodation at 7:30AM and we will drive 75km south of Punta Arenas untill Punta del Árbol to start our hike. It´s a 7 hours hike with 7.5 Miles and 2.400 elevation feet. It´s a demanding hike and we will pass through the beach, peat bogs, typical magellan forest and a moraine. It´s a incredible landscape and a perfect opportunity to hike in a remote area. From the summit we will see the Magellan´s Strait, Tierra del Fuego, Darwin Mountain Range, Andes Mountain Range and many fjords and archipelagos. Be prepared for all kinds of weather! It´s necessary to bring layers, rain gear, gloves, hiking boots, trekking sticks (let me know if you don't have one), water bottle, sunglasses. We will back to Punta Arenas around 19:00pm.
Lunch Box with sandwich, cereal bar, nuts, chocolate and fruit. Let me know you are vegan/vegetarian/gluten free/alergic, etc

Monte Tarn is the highest mountain in the area with 825mts high wich Darwin climbed on his way through Patagonia. There he found the first fossils in the region. If the weather conditions allows it we will have a panoramic view from the summit. It´s a perfect hike for those who wants to avoid the crowds during high season in Torres del Paine National Park and enjoy the inhospit Patagonia.
