Gravel del Fuego

1047 km ultra race departing from Torres del Paine National Park, the 8th wonder of the world.

The competition begins in the city of Puerto Natales, to enter the Torres del Paine National Park (8th wonder of the world) which is installed in the middle of the southern scenario endowed with a unique scenic wonder. Then, the route moves along the border with Argentina, entering the most real pampa that remains in the area, then you will border the unknown Pali Aike National Park, which houses a collection of volcanoes that were active 15 thousand years ago.

A pass through the town of San Gregorio, then cross the Strait of Magellan by barge, explore the town of Porvenir, climb the historic Cordon Baquedano, full of gold mining history. Pass through the imposing King Penguin Park, visit the Cameron Ranch, one of the most fruitful in history; cross Pampa Guanaco, visit Lago Blanco, and end up in the depths of the little-heard Darwin Range, stepping on the end of the official road in Caleta María.

Gravel del Fuego makes a journey that starts in Puerto Natales (Natalis), goes north to visit Villa Cerro Castillo, Magallanes, to enter through Laguna Amarga to Torres del Paine National Park. It goes through a gravel road giving a complete crossing of the Paine Mountain Range, with sightings of the best quality of the Torres del Paine (North, Central and South), Cerro Almirante Nieto (2440 masl), Cuernos del Paine and the maximum king with its eternal glacier plateau; Cerro Paine Grande with its summit of 3050 masl.

Then you return to Natales through the western exit of the park, through the Villa Serrano sector. This road will pass by the entrance of the Milodon Cave, a distinctive animal of the area. Then you go straight south to turn east along steppe or pampas roads that will test your mettle as you skirt the national border between Chile and Argentina. You will then pass through the entrance to one of the least visited national parks in the country, Pali Aike, with a collection of volcanoes and “Maares” that were active 15,000 years ago.

You will visit the town of San Gregorio, a historical landmark of the southern sheep ranching thanks to the pioneer José Menéndez. A special moment will be when you cross the Strait of Magellan through its narrowest part: Punta Delgada, you will cross the barge that will finally take you to the mythical Tierra del Fuego.

A crossing to Porvenir, to get into the little known Cordon Baquedano, a little known tourist area of gold mining until today. You will arrive at the private King Penguin Park, which has one of the most coveted and beautiful birds in the world. You will visit the magnanimous sport fishing lake Lago Blanco, and finally roll through the giant esplanade of Pampa Guanaco, to reach the millenary forest of Tierra del Fuego, definitive sign of the birth of the mountains that approach the Cordillera Darwin, which is today the least explored mountain range of what is left in the world.
