Remote pioneer history and ranches of Tierra del Fuego via Cerro Sombrero
Aug 27, 2019
About the Guidebook
Cerro Sombrero is a historic town from the 1950's located in the north of Chilean Tierra del Fuego - not only sheep farming country, but also the region where the history of the Chilean petroleum industry really kicked off.
Here is an opportunity to see how the people lived in those early years and how the almost legendary harsh conditions of Tierra del Fuego were adapted to - from the time of the indigenous Selk'nam people to the sheep farmers and then eventually industry as well.
All this whilst recharging your batteries for the rest of your journey.
Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
I've come to know about little interesting places and things in the town that very little people know about, or have visited. Arriving with this guide, and quoting me, will certainly open a few more doors along the way to finding the local secrets.
The local secrets will fascinate you in the least - this in a town that nobody thinks of much other than a stopover but, it's a treasure trove of history, culture and super friendly people.
