Beautiful place to walk along the water. We saw dolphins and some cool exotic birds. Roughly 4-5km from the end of the road you hike to the lighthouse. Well worth it. Bring water. Perhaps a walking stick as well.

a trek not to be done lightly, rewarding, challenging, physically demanding (pebble beaches, climbing up and down trees, mud, slippery rocks, mash trampoline trails, river crossings, fox ennerving...) but SO MUCH FUN! Lost at the end of the continent, found peace.

You can drive with your car along the coast on a proper road. However approximately 5 km from Cabo Froward you must leave your car and walk the rest of the way. It is a very nice Hike to one of the most southern Points and there is a small Café at the lighthouse.

You will have to have a means of transportation to get to the starting point of this hike about 70km south of Punta Arenas. From the very end of the road you will start off a beach hike that takes you to the abandoned light house San Isidro which is about 4km one way and can easily take you 2 hours (because of the sand). Cabo Froward is another 28km away. Don't get confused by the maps that might indicate a road there. The hike is absolutely gorgeous and lonesome - we only met a total of 7 persons along the way. The hostal was closed when we were there, so bring your own food and drinks too. You will be rewarded with wonderful scenic views and a sense of being all by yourself in this holy environment.

We departed the 32km tracking from Punta Árbol. The one way track to cape Froward took us 6 days, but there is people doing the return trip in the same number of days. We wanted to do it slowly to have the chance to stop for longer in some places and take breaks during the day. It's a hard tracking, you have to be fit. You'll walk throughout slippery rocks, mud, forest, and rocky beaches. You'll also have to climb steep hills using a rope or grabbing tree roots... Quite an adventure!

All your efforts and leg cramps will be tremendously rewarded with amazing views of the Estrecho de Magallanes and the Cordillera de Darwin. This is a must in Punta Arenas.

You don't need a tourist guide to do this trekking,the way is properly marked with colour flags. You only need food, a good tent and sleeping bag, and energy. From cape Froward we took a zodiac back to Punta Árbol with Kayak Agua Fresca tourist company.

The monument is atop a hillside, and as we were on a cruise ship, visible from the deck. It is a example of man erecting on a difficult site.

As you sail around the cape from Punta Arenas to Carlos III island on the whalesound trip you see this cross on the cliff. The coastline around here looks very remote. Our sea trip was fine but it can get very choppy. Great trip
