4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS CLASSIC PROGRAM

Day 1 USHUAIA, TIERRA DEL FUEGO (USH)

Upon arrival at USHUAIA Airport, reception and shared transfer in English and Spanish to your hotel.
Hotel of your choice with breakfast and taxes

Day 2 USHUAIA - TIERRA DEL FUEGO NATIONAL PARK - USHUAIA

Full-Day Tierra del Fuego National Park visit with tickets and an English-speaking guide. At 12 km westwards from Ushuaia it is located the entrance to Tierra del Fuego National Park, the only one with a seacoast in our country. It has a surface of 63000 hectares where lengas (Nothofagus Pumilio), sour cherry trees, ñires (Nothofagus Antarctica), Calafate, Notros (Embothrium coccineum) (Embothrium coccineum), flowers such as orchids, violets, and Senecios (Asteraceae).

A trip around this national park, in addition to the several panoramic views of Beagle Channel framed by the mountains and forest, approaches us to nature. The chance of breathing sea air as well as the forest smell is a privilege for only a few people.

We follow the road that traces a very thin strip in the mountain foothills; we go past peat bogs, beavers' dams and finally we arrive in Lapataia River. After crossing the river, the road becomes winding and full of bushes with some panoramic views like Verde Lagoon. Kaikenes and storks come here every summer.

If the passenger wants to feel like the main character in a short story, we suggest taking the hike along the path that leads to Negra Lagoon or Beavers' Path to interpret these curious animals' work. So it starts the last section to Lapataia (National Route 3 end) where the old inhabitants of this area left their legacy: the shelly deposits, some incredible archaeological sites.

Before returning to Ushuaia we stop at Roca Lake whose color changes according to the weather. There we can savor chocolate in the café.

End Of The World Train ride

We depart from the hotel to the End of the World Station in the Ushuaia municipal camping site. This is the departing point for the trains which, then, follow the winding Pipo River edge that goes into Tierra del Fuego National Park. This is the same route as the prison train used to take. Here we can appreciate the used tree trunks: loyal witnesses of that time when Ushuaia used to be a penal colony. Some very funny carriages from the beginning of last century take us to revive a part of this land history.

Hotel with breakfast and taxes

Day 3 USHUAIA - BEAGLE CHANNEL NAVIGATION - SEA WOLVES ISLAND VISIT - USHUAIA

Half-Day Beagle channel navigation: Seawolves island visit with English speaking guide. In very comfortable modern ships we sail around Bridges Islands and the Archipelago and Les Eclaireurs lighthouse, rocky outcrops in the middle of Beagle Channel that go together with the mountain chains that close this magnificent interoceanic passage. We sail opposite Túnel Farm where some archaeological work takes place.

We see colonies of cormorants, albatrosses, petrels, "cauquenes" (Chloephaga), etc. This is an excellent opportunity to watch sea mammals and birds without disturbing them.

Hotel with breakfast
