Mount Tarn is a small mountain of about 850 meters, formed by rocks of marine origin. It is located at the southern tip of the Brunswick Peninsula. It is an eastern sub-Andean area that represents a transitional belt between the Andean mountain range and the eastern plains. Therefore, this whole area corresponds to the southern tip of the continental Andes.

The trekking route at Mount Tarn is crossing dense forests with species like “Coihue of Magallanes” (Magellan’s beech), Canelo (Cinnamon),a conifer belonging to the cypres family known as Cipres de las Guaitecas, peat bogs, creeping plants, etc. The soil has high moisture content because of the constant rains. Therefore the climate is temperate cold with great humidity.

From the summit of Mount Tarn, you will be able to see the Strait of Magellan, San Isidro lighthouse, Dawson and Tierra del Fuego Islands, the Darwin Mountain Range, Mount Sarmiento and the whole Brunswick Peninsula.
