This full-day, active tour takes up to 20 passengers for a ride, to navigate, to walk and to make discoveries in one of the roughest and most beautiful places in the Beagle Channel.
From the hotel, we leave Ushuaia Eastbound along National Route No. 3 and Route "J". Once we arrive to Lasiphashaj river, we will prompt the inflatable canoes down the river, and into the Beagle Channel. The group will be provided with rubber boots, overpants and lifejackets for the activity in the canoes that will go down the river and into the sea. Once on the Beagle Channel, passengers will row setting course to the ranch. Throughout the journey at sea will see wildlife: a variety of different seabirds and it is also usual, on the way to Harberton, to catch a sight of sea lions.
On board a motorboat, we will leave towards Martillo Island. From the boat, we'll have the chance to see penguins in their breeding lair. Navigation on the motorboat continues up to the main attraction of the day: the enormous Gable Island, where lunch with a good Patagonian wine, soft drink and mineral water await.
After coffee, were go for a hike to know more of this gorgeous island, crossing over beaver damms and through the forest to reach the Beagle Channel shore where we'll take the boat to reach Puerto Harberton, and to hop on the bus that will leave us back in our hotel.
