Trip Overview

Tierra del Fuego National Park was created in 1960 to protect the southernmost portion of the forests along the Beagle Channel and covers an area of ​​almost 69,000 hectares. It is one of the most popular places to visit near Ushuaia and Drake offers a unique experience in the Park. We take our guests in small groups on less-used trails to reach hidden corners of the forest.

We’ll pick you up at your hotel bright and early and travel west in our comfortable van towards Tierra Del Fuego National Park. Along the way, we’ll stop at panoramic viewpoints of the Beagle Channel and surrounding mountains and other areas of interest before arriving at the start of our Patagonia trekking adventure, where we’ll hike out towards Lapataia Lookout. In the Indigenous Yamana language, lapataia means “wooded” or “good wood.”

As we hike, your local, naturalist guide will explain the particularities of this unique ecosystem. The impressive surrounding mountain ranges divide the Park into lush and geographically-remote valleys. Unlike other Andean parks, this habitat features green forests that continue up to maritime coastlines. Throughout the day, we’ll view a secluded, woodland lake, the river Pipo, a waterfall, and a variety of breathtaking photo stops. Keep your eyes peeled for Patagonia’s animals! After an exciting day of Patagonia trekking, we’ll pile back into our cozy van and take you back to your hotel.
