    Cruise Beagle Channel, pausing for photos at islands populated with sea lions, cormorants and penguins, and then explore the first farm built in Argentine Tierra del Fuego.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon board a catamaran and sail into Beagle Channel, the strait that separates Argentina from Chile in the south. The waterway is named for the British ship HMS Beagle, in which Charles Darwin explored the area in 1833-1834.


    Islands dot the channel and the rocky coast is wild and wonderful with forests to the water’s edge and the southern Andes in the far distance. Few places on earth are so pristine and unaffected by what little civilization there is.


    Approaching Sea Lions’ Island, you will see dozens of the namesake mammals clustered on the rocks. The males are typically twice the size of the females and weigh nearly 800 pounds. While pausing for photos at nearby Bird Island, you will notice that the main inhabitants are Imperial Cormorants and Magellanic Cormorants, which are also known as rock shags.


    Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse is another photo-worthy site, as are the Magellanic penguins on the neighboring islands. These highly social birds will often come up to the catamaran, the perfect opportunity for a close up.


    Following this encounter, you will stop at Estancia Harberton, an 1886 farm in Argentine Tierra del Fuego with outbuildings and a family cemetery tucked into a nature reserve. Enjoy a boxed lunch here before boarding a coach for the journey back to the pier. Your scenic route will follow a winding course alongside the Lasifashaj River that flows within the Fuegian forest.

    Islands dot the channel and the rocky coast is wild and wonderful with forests to the water’s edge and the southern Andes in the far distance. Few places on earth are so pristine and unaffected by what little civilization there is.


    Seabirds are abundant in most every direction. You may spot black-capped albatrosses, flocks of seagulls and grayish skuas, an aggressive bird that often attacks other birds in mid-air to steal the fish they have caught.


    Approaching Sea Lions’ Island, you will see dozens of the namesake mammals clustered on the rocks. The males are typically twice the size of the females and weigh nearly 800 pounds. While pausing for photos at nearby Bird Island, you will notice that the main inhabitants are Imperial Cormorants and Magellanic Cormorants.


    Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse is another photo-worthy site, as is the colony of Magellanic penguins on Martillo Island. These highly social birds will often come up to the catamaran as they hunt for cuttlefish and squid. It’s the perfect opportunity for a close up shot, after which you will return to the pier.

    Immerse yourself in Ushuaia’s history. In the early 19th century the Argentine government set up the Prison of Ushuaia where escape was practically impossible and for the first half of the 20th century, the city was centered around the prison. The prisoners became forced colonists and spent much of their time cutting wood in the forest and building the town. They also built a railway known as the prisoners train and the southernmost railway in the world. Dangerous convicts and well-known political prisoners made this prison famous until it closed in 1947.


    Today you’ll learn about the life of the prisoners during those days when they were the inhabitants of the End of the World. You’ll begin with a visit to the old prison which today is home to a museum and take a train ride. During the narrated journey you’ll discover a part of Tierra del Fuego’s legendary history. At the railway’s turnaround point, you’ll board a motorcoach and continue a tour through the national park to Ensenada Bay, one of the area’s scenic highlights before heading back to the pier.
