Dientes de Navarino (Teeth of Navarino in English) are a mountain range in Navarino Island, Chile, located just south of Puerto Williams, along the Beagle Channel coast. They are named for the jagged pinnacles which resemble teeth.

There is a rough hiking circuit around the range. Depending on weather conditions the trek takes 5 to 7 days. The trail passes peaks known as Cerro Clem and Montes Lindenmayer, named in 2001 by the Chilean Ministry of Natural Resources for the author of the Lonely Planet guide. [1]
