Into the Heart of the Island 2 days

X

Day 1: We will leave Ushuaia to go East by the Beagle Channel on one of most active tours available in Tierra del Fuego. In an area far away from the tourist-crowded areas, during this first part of the day we'll take canoeing down a river to get into the Beagle Channel, head towards the East and, with the help of the wind, approach Harberton Ranch by sea!

Once there, we’ll navigate see penguins on an island. Later on, we’ll go for a walk for and to make discoveries in one of the roughest and most beautiful places in the Beagle Channel. On our way back, we’ll change vehicles.

The second part of the day takes us beyond the Andes into the woods, and by the lake Fagnano. Overnight at our shelter located on the shores of this lake of 100 km in length after a relaxing dinner by the fire and a magnificent view.

Day 2: We leave towards Lake Yehuin, behind the north bank of Lake Fagnano. After visiting Tolhuin we enter an area of environmental change: the steppe begins to be seen within the subantarctic forest. In the area of "estancias", we will see many birds and guanacos in our 3 hour journey into the Provincial Park Heart of the Island

We will have lunch near the headwaters of the Rio Indio. In the afternoon, we ascend the Mount Cabrasa on a rough walk for nearly 4 hours to spot an intact and infinite landscape: fords, bogs, beaver ponds, lakes, and mountains horizon.

After the descent, we return to Ushuaia towards the end of the afternoon.
