Puerto Edén is a port town in southern Chile, situated south of the Gulf of Penas on the western shore of the Paso del Indio, on Wellington Island. The Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, the largest in Latin America, covers the whole of Wellington Island. Approximately 6,000 years ago, the island’s coasts were inhabited by native canoeing peoples, the ancestors of the modern day Kawésqar.
