The commune of Porvenir, is rich in History and Architectural Heritage, formed by the pioneers that over a hundred years populated this land.
It is located on the edge of the Laguna de los Cisnes Natural Monument, near which you will find the Green and Desired Ponds. In the center of the island of Tierra del Fuego is Lago Branco, excellent for fishing.
What to do
Resort tourism, along with sport fishing, are activities that are practiced all over the island, but on Lake Branco most of this activity is developed, as the amount of salmon and trout attracts fans when the fishing season begins. .
Porvenir has an incredible panoramic view, formed by glaciers and blizzards that descend from the mountains to the different fjords and canals.
Walking the city streets and searching for its most significant points is for many the best tour this city offers. Its picturesque streets that fall into the sea or in the canals, its pruned trees draw attention at first sight and the tranquility with which the hours pass make this place a wonderful city.
