Trip Overview

This is the perfect addon to our free walking tour(opens in a new tab) and starts right after it!

We’ll meet at Drake’s office and get to know one another over a cup of coffee and a factura, a traditional Argentinian pastry. Then, we’ll hop in our comfortable tour van and head southeast along the coast of the Beagle Channel. Enjoy views of the pristine channel as we drive to the Beacon Viewpoint. Here we can see the entire city of Ushuaia in one picture. We’ll spend some time enjoying the Beagle Channel and sweeping views of the port city and surrounding nature. Next, it’s on to Playa Larga Nature Reserve, where we’ll take a peaceful walk in the surrounding forest. Stunning wind-shaped trees and Patagonia mountain views will surround us as we walk.

Heading back to the city along the coast, we’ll pass an industrial area and hear about it’s economic importance to the Province. Arriving back in town, we’ll stop at the iconic USHUAIA letters sign in front of beautiful Bay. It’s another great photo opportunity. From there we can see military housing built to lodge the first families who arrived in Ushuaia, coming south from warmer parts. The old airport also has its own unique history and an infamously dangerous landing strip.
