Visiting 1 country: Argentina
Ever wondered what it feels like to stand at the edge of the world? Surrounded by dramatic mountains and Argentina’s epic beauty, Ushuaia offers breathtaking coastal landscapes and amazing maritime wildlife. This trip won’t fall short of awe-inspiring!
Day 1: Ushuaia
Once you arrive to the airport in Ushuaia you’ll directly transfer to your hotel with your English Speaking Guide. Departing from the tourist pier, we start the navigation through the Beagle Channel, heading to the Lighthouse of Les Eclaireurs. Here you’ll be able to spot the amazing birds and super cute Sea Lions swimming and jumping around the boat.
We continue our journey passing by the Estancia Remolino and Almanza Harbor; heading for the McKinlay Passage toward the gable / Martillo Island, where there is a Magellan penguin colony. There we will stop to watch and photograph these beautiful birds from the catamaran. After that, we’ll make our way back to the Ushuaia pier.
Day 2: Ushuaia Trekking & Canoas
After breakfast we’ll go for a walk, where we will combine a trekking and a canoeing tour by the National Park Tierra del Fuego. These trails will take us to the most beautiful places of the park, famous for its wildlife such as giants trees, similar to those seen in the film the Lord of the Rings.
After this walk, our adventure heads on to the sea to sail the Beagle Channel in well equipped canoes. We’ll will the island of Sea Lions and the Mesa Redonda island to see the Imperial cormorants. We’ll dock and touch down on this island for a coffee with a beautiful view as the afternoon ends. Our return to Ushuaia will be around 06:00 Pm.
Day 3: Ushuaia: Lake Fagnano & Escondido
As soon as you finish breakfast, your day starts with a tour to Lake Fagnano and Escondido. We’ll take the bus and drive along the scenic northern sector of the island, passing through areas of Turbas and running along the valleys of the Carbajal Huskies, Tierra Mayor and the cotorras covering about 75 kmts.
Once we cross the Andes Cordillera by Paso Garibaldi, you’ll enjoy the panoramic view of the Lakes Escondido and Fagnano. From there begins the descent towards Lake Escondido, on foot if you want (45 minutes) or by bus.
Our journey then continues through the old route until we reach the paved path of the Lake Fagnano, here we’ll take a moment to marvel at the beauty of raw nature. On our way back to the city, we will stop for lunch in one of the winter refuges. This lunch is not included in the price of the excursion and usually offers a menu of Fuegian lamb.
Day 4: Ushuaia
After breakfast, we’ll say our heartfelt goodbyes and take you to the airport to make your way back home.
