Welcome to the middle of nowhere. With a new ferry route from Puerto Natales, Puerto Yungay has become a key transit point linking Northern and Southern Patagonia, saving travelers days of travel time. But don't expect much else. Wild stretches of rushing rivers and virgin forest flank the curvy road south of El Vagabundo and the access road to Caleta Tortel. Heading south on the Carretera Austral, it's the last stop before Villa O'Higgins.
