Departure Time

9:00 AM
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.

Rafting and Major Hike - Great Workout
RVerginia
, Feb 2020
The excursion was as described. We travelled to the national park and began with paddling in rafts (not canoes) through a small lake and river area. The gear was good and they had rubber boots for us. An excellent lunch was served. We then hiked through the mountains to a summit from which we could see the Beagle Channel and surrounding mountains. We were given a choice of trails and our group choose a more strenuous one with better views. Our guide, Daniel, was excellent, pointing out information about the trees, flora and fauna.

I absolutely loved the tour with Valeria our guide who was very nice and knowledgeable about the national park and the geography of the place in general. We ended up on the boat longer than schedule as we adapted to the weather, and although it was raining, I ended up having a great time altogether that day! Mattias, the second guide on the boat (sorry if misspelled) was also great! However, if I can recommend something, some people on the tour were not super eager to do a long walk, because we were wet etc, so we ended up not walking for too long. I would have liked to walk more but because some people in the group weren't up for it I felt a bit disappointed. So if you don't like walking in the rain or physical efforts in general, please don't sign-up so that other people more up for it can enjoy the tour to its fullest. Thanks again to the guides for a great experience!

Three of us in family, with no skills at canoeing, did the whole day tour. It was very cold, mid 40s, windy and rained all day (just bad luck, I guess). The team of Mathias and Valeria were awesome. We started with canoeing first with plan to do 1 hour cruise along river to Lapatia bay. Since it was windy, it was incredibly difficult to canoe against wind on some of the sections. We were 7 in group and along with M and V, it took us 2 hours to finish the job but we couldn’t have been prouder! Wine and chicken stew was good. Thereafter we did a shorter 60-90 min hike and they educated us along the way (on flora, fauna, geology) and we stopped at the post office too. We were done close to 6 pm, at least 1-2 hours extra but these guys did do a fantastic job and made sure we got most out of our activity. I bet if was only windy and not rainy, they would have had us do the canoeing across the bay, beagle channel all the way up to the post office (tail wind would have helped). I would have preferred that over hiking in mud and rain soaked ground but we still managed both activities to make the day and money worth every penny! You had to be there to see seven poor souls canoeing hard against high wind and rain, sometimes going backwards but eventually finishing what we had set out to do. Totally worth the activity, Booking on Viator but local agent Tangol and team from Nunatak adventures. Need to figure out how to cut these middlemen off!!

River Raft and Hike in Ushuaia
Mmarcus
, Feb 2020
The tour and guide were great. Viator needs to let people know where to meet for the tour and how to get there. They should include cost of getting into the park as part of total Cost. It’s not canoes but 6 to 8 person rubber rafts. Wearing comfortable hiking pants I’d recommend and hiking shoes. You may get wet. Our guide was really good and knowledgeable. Spoke English well.

Guide Gabriel picked us up at the apartment and gave us a fun day in the park. We visited the Visitor Center (indoor plumbing), reassured us as we paddled a raft (not canoe) onto the lake with large waves and a strong wind, then expertly steered us to the gentle river. We portaged and paddled some more. Lunch was in a yurt lakeside with a delicious chicken stew, appetizer kabob with cheese and olives, bread, wine, and fresh fruit. We then went for a 7km hike along another lake to the historic post office. He has long legs and kept a fast but somewhat reasonable pace. You should have good walking shoes and be in good shape. 9am to 6pm. Great day!

Everything about our day in Tierra del Fuego was great. Timely pick up from hostal, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful guides and driver. Loved the hike, lunch and canoeing. I totally recommend this tour! I am 66 years old and the hike was of moderate difficulty and I was able to do it. I was not the fastest and Pedro made sure I was able to get down some of the steeper sections. It was rainy, so part of trail was slippery. The canoe was a raft with 5-6 people in each, with guide in the back. Everyone paddles and it is a very stable boat. In between the hike and canoe we had a very good lunch.

Guide was excellent and the rafting portion was fun since it was low tide. Most sections you drift leisurely with the current so not much paddling was required until the end when there was a headwind. The hiking portion was incredibly scenic.
