Tierra del Fuego Chile
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Tierra del Fuego

At Punta Arenas, to the south, you have to cross the Magellan Strait to reach Tierra del Fuego, a region of deserted steppes broken up by fjords where rain, wind and the cold make it one of the most hostile inhabited regions in the world. Apart from the odd cattle farm and oil plant, Tierra del Fuego really is an untouched landscape.

This part of Chile is great for practicing outdoor and adventure sports such as fishing, climbing and hiking. This barren landscape is a place for those who yearn to get away from the hustle and bustle and to experience life how it was lived hundreds of years ago, in harsh conditions and true isolation. Be warned however, the average temperature is 5ºC, annual rainfall varies between 300 and 5000ml and winds can reach 62mi/h. Therefore if you like to use your holiday to relax and be pampered - Tierra del Fuego is not the place for you.
