Gable Island and Penguin Rookery with Ea. Harberton


From October to April:

Gable Island is the tour for those who arrive in Ushuaia searching for the world’s end.

Away from the tourist-crowded areas, and in the middle of the Beagle Channel, this place is recommended worldwide by word-of-mouth. Gable Island offers us nature untouched and history in the present tense.

On our way to Gable Island we will see penguins at Martillo island.

During this full-day excursion we go for a ride, to sail on a motor boat, and to walk and discover. \\r\\n\\r\\nIn Gable Island we’ll find the remains of the Yamana civilization and those of the first white settlers. This area shows an infinite and primal landscape, both magic and extreme. Surrounded by silence, and the sea, where only the wind and the birds are heard, we might experience the feeling of being alone in the world.
