PorvenirRegión de Magallanes
Tierra del Fuego
The visit serves to experience a little bit of the Tierra del Fuego life, that's all. Most visitors come on a quick trip from Punta Arenas often with a touch of dizziness due to the crossing. However, spending a night in this village of rusted metal carts offers you the opportunity to explore the nearby bays and countryside and absorb a little more of the relaxed local life. As a Chilean, said of it: "There is nothing to do - but that is the point" Porvenir has a unique heritage. When gold was discovered in 1879, waves of immigrants arrived, many from Croatia, and most did not get rich. When sheep ranches began to emerge, immigrants found more reliable jobs. People from the Chilean island of Chiloé appeared en masse for fishing and working, and the possibility of a better life. The current population is a unique combination of both. Gravel is the main material of the road along scenic stretches of the Inútil Bay on the border with Argentina in San Sebastian, these roads are in good shape. From San Sebastian (where there is gas and a motel), those driving north should avoid heavy travel and opt for the Onaisín route to the oil company town of Cerro Sombrero on the road towards the crossing of the Strait of Magellan in Punta Delgada, Puerto Spore.
