We will meet from 8:00 am at 136 Roca Street, located in the centre of Ushuaia and from there we will go by bus to the East through the glacial valleys that run through the forests and the National Route No. 3.
Around 10:15 am we will arrive at the Lasifashaj River where we will have a technical safety instruction and will be given rubber boots, trouser covers, life jackets, paddles and a very stable and safe canoe. We will begin our navigation of approximately 1:30 am through the Guarani Pass of the Beagle Channel. While paddling, we will see the Isla Grande of Tierra del Fuego where we will have unique panoramic views, enjoy the sounds of the wildlife, visualize a great amount and variety of birds and probably the curious sea lions.
At 12:00 pm we will arrive at the coast to board a motor boat and sail for 30 minutes around Martillo Island. During the navigation we will have the chance to see Magellanic Penguins and Gentoo from very close.
At 12:30 we arrive at Gable Island, our guide will tell us why the island represents the first history of Tierra del Fuego before the foundation of the city of Ushuaia. In one of the first colonial buildings, in a modest stand of the estancia we will enjoy a good lunch cooked on the spot, with a good Patagonian red wine and a huge and quiet view. After dessert and coffee, around 1:45 pm we'll go on an interpretative walk through the island's lenga, coihue, ñire and cinnamon forests among beaver dams, vestiges of the Yamana's passage and the Anglican missionaries. At 3:00 pm we will arrive at the southern coast of Gable Island, we will have a totally unusual panoramic view of the Beagle Channel from the high viewpoint of the "gables", a glacial formation.
At approximately 4:15 pm we will make a 45 minute navigation towards the Harberton Estancia. There our bus will be waiting for us to start our return to the city of Ushuaia. On the way we will make a brief stop at the flag tree to take pictures and at 6:00 pm we will arrive to Ushuaia.
Those who do not wish to venture or be physically demanding on the canoe trip can opt for an extended and thorough visit of the area of the main house of the Harberton Estancia. After this visit, we can sail to Gable and Martillo Islands to see the Magellanic and Gentoo penguins.
