Registering for a pre- or postconference trip will provide you with transportation to Puerto Williams (by ferry or plane depending on your choice below) from Punta Arenas, and departure from Puerto Williams back to Punta Arenas by plane (see map). Registration includes bed and breakfast hostels, transportation within Navarino Island, meals, and transportation to Punta Arenas on your way back. Because of space limitations, these trips are available only to participants of the conference and their families.

We cannot tell you which B&B you will be in or what your room number will be, because Puerto Williams is a small and remote city just starting professional tourism, but we can guarantee that you will be in a nice, familiar environment.

When the time comes, we will send you the details about what you need to know about your trip (weather, clothes, ATM, etc.).
