Tierra del Fuego National Park Hike and Canoe Tour

Summary

After pickup at your Ushuaia hotel, travel with a small group to Tierra del Fuego National Park with an outdoors expert at the helm. Arrive at Bahia Ensenada (Ensenada Bay) to appreciate gorgeous views of the Beagle Channel before setting out on your leisurely hike on one of two local trails.  Trek on Pampa Alta or Senda Costera, depending on your guide's recommendation, the conditions that day and the group's skill level and interests. The 4-mile (8-km) Senda Costera winds along the coast for approximately 3 hours, while Pampa Alta is a 3-mile (5-km) path that offers bird watching, beautiful alpine views and takes about 2 hours.  Learn about nature, geography, and wildlife from your guide as you walk through this diverse area. Look out for ancient Yámanas settlements and the native Antarctic beech trees.  Arrive at Lago Roca (Roca Lake) in time for a picnic lunch in the forest. Sip mineral water, wine, and soft drinks while enjoying chicken breast en papillote (baked in foil) with cheese and tomato.  When lunch is finished, prepare for a 1.5-hour scenic canoe ride in the Lapataia River, led by your guide and suitable for all skill levels. End up at the remote Lapataia Bay and the Beagle Channel, which both host abundant birdlife such as geese, ducks, and plovers. Finish your adventure here, amid the 'end of the world' views in this pristine bay surrounded with dramatic mountains and lush forest.  After, board your minibus for the trip back to Ushuaia and drop-off at your hotel.
