Details of this Activity

We leave Ushuaia towards the east along National Route Nº3. Once in the Lasiphashaj River, passengers can choose between two activities: paddling in inflatable canoes along the river and the Beagle Channel, or going directly to Estancia Harberton and visiting the Marine Mammal Museum and the surroundings of one of the first settlements in Tierra del Fuego. 

In the meantime, the group that chose to paddle will prepare themselves with the rubber boots, trousers and life jackets that we will give them to begin an adventure in canoes that will take them downstream to the sea. Once in the Beagle Channel, we will take the canoes to the estancia. Along the itinerary at sea we will be able to meet its wildlife: many different sea birds. It's not even unusual to find sea lions sunning on the tiny islands that mark the way to Port Harberton. 

After paddling in canoes or visiting the Harberton Museum, the two groups meet at the pier of the estancia and continue together in a motor boat towards Martillo Island, where we can see penguins at their breeding site. The navigation continues in the motor boat that takes us to know the main attraction of the day: the enormous Gable Island, where lunch awaits us with a good Patagonian wine and mineral water. 

After a cup of coffee, the hike goes along this wonderful island, through beaver dams, the sea coast and through the forest to reach the boat that takes us back to Harberton to take the bus that will take us back to Ushuaia.
