Ushuaia is the southernmost city on the planet, and it is a wonderful destination in its own right. However, there is no question that many visitors go to Ushuaia specifically to have access to the incredible Tierra del Fuego National Park. On this day tour, you’ll be able to get active on a small-group tour that hits the highlights of this unparalleled destination.
In Ushuaia, you’ll join up with the other participants in your small group tour, and you’ll meet your outdoor adventure expert guide. Together, you’ll travel to Bahia Ensenada, or Ensenada Bay, to begin the day’s thrilling adventures. There are two hiking options beginning at the bay, and each group can select the right fit for the day and the conditions. On the Pampa Alta trail, you’ll spend about two hours hiking a scenic three miles, and along the way you’ll admire mountain views. On the Senda Costera trail, the course is slightly longer, and there are opportunities for birdwatching as you hike.
When you get to Lago Roca, or Roca Lake, it will be time to kick back for a bit and enjoy a delicious lunch in spectacular scenery. On the menu is chicken en papillote, a delicious and hearty dish packed with cheese and tomato, a local favorite. Once you’re full, get ready for 90 minutes of canoeing along the Lapataia River. The final destination, where you’ll arrive by canoe, is the Lapataia Bay and Beagle Channel. Spot the countless geese and ducks that call the area home, and admire the views that include mountain peaks and lush green forest in what truly is the end of the world. The unforgettable day ends with a ride back to your hotel in Ushuaia.
