One of the benefits of hiking all around Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego (aside from learning to like wet feet) is the consistent vistas of water, rock, and snowy mountains. The southern spring provides plenty of snow and water–and lovely clouds–to make your landscape even more inviting. Even in warm spring, bring layers, because the weather can change in a matter of minutes. On one side of a hill, you’re in warm sun. On the other, a cold breeze kicks up from the Beagle Strait. As anyone who has been to this part of the world can tell you, there’s a bit of a wind. Constant wind. The chill wind that vexed mariners since Magellan first sailed through here. It’s not a part of the world for the faint hearted. But the rewards are manifest. Just look up.
Thanks to Tierra del Fuego Aventura for getting us there.
