Highlights
  • Ushuaia - After a morning pickup from your hotel in Ushuaia (shared service), you’ll head to Tierra del Fuego National Park.
  • Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego - About 7 miles away from the city, on the famous channel once sailed by Charles Darwin, we will get to Tierra del Fuego National Park (entrance fee not included).
  • Bahía Ensenada - During the summer season, we will walk along the coast or high pampa (we will hike one or another according to terrain and weather conditions, etc). For about 7 km (4.4 miles), spot the diverse flora and bird fauna of the Beagle Channel or the Fuegian forest, stop to contemplate the famous Beagle Channel on Ensenada Bay and enjoy beautiful views of Redonda, Hoste and Navarino islands as well as the remains of ancient Yámana settlements, natives of the area.

During the winter season, you can decide to either walk along the wonderful Valley of Río Pipo or take the ‘End of The World’ train on a 1-hour long ride (Train ticket not included). The Shore Path remains closed during this season, so instead, we will continue by vehicle to Acigami Lake, Green Lagoon, Ovando River and Bahía Lapataia and take short hikes through the woods to discover its wonders, along paths normally covered with snow or ice.

  • Lago Roca - After a 3-hour moderate hike (during summer), or an easy 2-hour hike (during winter), you’ll access Acigami Lake (also known as Roca Lake), and near to the border of Lapataia River, you’ll enjoy a comforting hot lunch with a great panoramic view from inside a heated dome-tent, to avoid wind or rain.

Afterwards, all participants will be equipped. Start your exciting 1-hour paddle journey from the Acigami Lake down the freshwater of Lapataia river aboard inflatable canoes (duckies). Depending on the physical conditions of your group, you may reach the sea in Lapataia Bay (canoeing is subject to weather conditions).

  • Ushuaia - At the end of the tour, you’ll be driven back to your hotel in Ushuaia.

**Notes: The boats used are inflatable and they usually seat up to 9 people plus the guide. Schedules are estimated and may vary due to bad weather. Duration of the summer tour: 7/10 hours, trekking: 3 hours. Winter tour: 6/8 hours, trekking: short treks of no more than 90 minutes total. Canoeing difficulty: low

Perfect day - Great rafting, tasty lunch, nice trek through forest and along beaches. Our guide even completed the experience by producing coffee (and teas) at a break point on the trek.

Great day in the outdoors in Tierra del Fuego NP - We spent about 1.5 hours rafting tothe hot lunch spot ... it was a beautiful day and our guide was great fun. Good hot lunch, then about 5 hours / 7 km hike along (well, up and down trails) the Beagle Channel with Kathy. She was really knowledgeable about the environment and great company. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel which was very convenient. Highly recommend this outing (about 10 hours door-to-door).

Great day! - Great fun in a raft (2 couples and guide) down river and to the edge of the Beagle Channel. Hot lunch before a 7km (5 hour) hike (up and down, as well as along beach). Kathy was very knowledgeable about the history and environmental aspects.

Guides are great and... - Guides are great and super interactive. The booking says you will do the hike first and then canoeing, but it depends on other tours. We did our canoeing first, had lunch, then hiked. The chicken at lunch was a bit dry but other than that it was a very fun day

Unforgettable experience! - The kindness of the guides and above all the landscapes made this tour incredible. I'm not a big fan of trekking but I loved this tour. It was also not too demanding which was good for me. We went through different landscapes from forest to sea and enjoyed some beautiful mountain views. The canoeing was also very enjoyable. I thought we might get wet at some point but luckily we didn't. The guides gave us enough time to take pictures and enjoy the important points of the tour so the day flew by quickly!

Nice day in the park - We did a similar tour, but with a shorter nature walk with a guide. A van took us to different places where we did a short hike each time and got explanations about the flora and the fauna. After that we had lunch in a dome like structure. In the afternoon we boarded rafts and went down the river to El fin de Mondo. Overall a nice day in the national park .
