Chile // Tierra del Fuego //


CAMERÓN was once a Scottish settlement with a thriving sheep farm, built on either side of the Río Shetland, but nowadays all that’s left are some neat little workers’ houses and a large shearing shed. From here, the land begins to lose its Patagonian severity, and as you travel inland you’ll see dense forest. Some 20km later, the road forks north to San Sebastián, and south to a place called Río Grande, where an iron bridge crosses the river. You are now surrounded by Magellanic forest, occasionally interspersed with open grassland, where you are likely to see roaming guanacos.
