The Dientes Circuit is the most southerly track we can find listed in a hiking guidebook.
It’s in Patagonia, the jumping off point Puerto Williams, Chile.
From there you can circumambulate the jagged spires of Cordon de los Dientes with constant vistas as most of the route is above treeline.
Nick & Jenni felt it was one of the big highlights of their round-the-world adventure. Certainly Jenni posted the best trip report we’ve yet seen:
From the Paso de los Dientes we had great views over the islands making up Cape Horn (about 150km further south). We wondered how many people there were further south than us at this point, not many – cruise ships in Antartica & the scientists on Antartica & not many others. …
… Apart from the tent on the first day, we didnÂ´t see another soul until we hit the road on the last day. It was a really good walk & we both really enjoyed it. There was a lot of fresh snow on the Dientes and the surrounding mountains – making it all very picturesque.
