Beginning with convenient pickup at your Ushuaia hotel, your adventure really starts when you board a catamaran for a sail through the Beagle Channel. Imagine what it must have been like for Charles Darwin sailing through this otherworldly landscape so many years ago.
Listen to your guide's commentary about Ushuaia's origins as a penal colony while passing the Olivia and Cincos Hermanos mountains. Trace Darwin’s journey past the Encajonado River and Fique Ranch, approaching the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse. At Sea Wolves Island, view the sea lions, fur seals, and king cormorants that call the rocks home. At Bird Island, see skuas, petrels, and giant albatross. Return to Ushuaia through Paso Chico, getting dramatic views of Martial Glacier on the way. End with easy drop-off at your Ushuaia hotel.
