Cape Froward is a natural reserve spanning over 95.000 hectares with three lots which are located in the Chilean Patagonia, in the Peninsula of Brunswick, Magallanes Region and the Chilean Antarctic. It is only 90kms from the main city in the Chilean-Argentinian Patagonia, Punta Arenas, and is the southernmost point of the continent, making it "the first rock of America."
The reserve is situated close to the very-popular Tierra del Fuego and the Maritime Park Francisco Coloane in Carlos lll Island.
Punta Arenas, capital of Magallanes Region, is the main port of entry to the Antarctic and it features modern airport services, telecommunications, health services, hotel management and gastronomy.The reserve is well-known for its southern characteristics and its ecological biodiversity which provides 50kms of beaches, 5 rivers and an abundance of flora as well as native forests. This makes it idyllic for practicing sports and attracting tourists looking for a piece of natural heaven on earth.
The development of tourist products and services shows great promise, given its location and the nearby areas of influence. Some of the activities already developed include horseback rides, fishing, navigation and whale-watching.
It is important to note that there is a possible development for the certification and application of the REDD+ Carbon Bonds. In this way, the reserve would be compatible with the sustainable development of tourism in the area, a popular demand in Patagonia.
The 5 rivers provide for calm and low-sodium waters, presenting themselves as ideal water resources.
The accumulation of the three lots covers an area of around 100,000 hectares.
