Full day hiking at the south of Brunswick Peninsula. The landscape is composed by subantarctic forest, a pristine environment, with a lot of flora, peatbog zones and a historical trekking circuit of 5km. Mount Tarn is 2600 feet high and belongs to Andes Mountain Range. This mount was named Tarn in honor to the surgeon John Tarn who was the first in reach its summit in 1827. Another important ascent was achieved by Charles Darwin in his visit to Magellan Strait. He disembarked beside the mount and just in the same point where we start the trek.
