What to Expect
Tierra del Fuego National Park is one of the most frequently visited places in Ushuaia: it is close to the city and easily accessible. You can approach it in your own way and enjoy it regardless of whichever route you take. That said, it might not reveal its secret to those who do not get into the depths of the landscape or do not pay enough attention to the wonders hidden inside it.
You will discover the true nature of the secret within the Tierra del Fuego National Park. With specialized guides it's possible to get to know in detail this recovered paradise, where the mountains are accessible from the sea, and the fresh water of rivers and lakes mix with the sea.
Depart from the hotel by minibus to Ushuaia National Park, where you will enjoy beautiful views of the Beagle Channel and start trekking through the coastal path. The 7 kilometers of travel allow you to meet the diverse flora and avifauna of the channel, and the traces of ancient settlement yámanas. After the 3 hour walk you'll get to access the Lago Roca where you'll get a hot lunch.
Then you will start with the canoe ride down the River Lapataia. This river brings you to the Lapataia bay in the Beagle Channel, precisely where the Panamerican Route and Nacional Route No. 3 culminates. Return to Ushuaia in mini bus.
On this tour you walk through the woods and row through lakes and rivers, all within the park that preserves the farthest forests in the south of Argentina.
