Soaring white-capped peaks and icy water characterize the harsh but wildly beautiful Tierra Del Fuego region. Intrepid tourists brave boat rides on the Beagle Channel, home to a colony of sea lions.

Beautiful Ensenada Bay offered superb views of the Beagle Channel. The Beagle Channel was named after the ship that carried English Naturalist, Charles Darwin. The channel boasts towering snow-capped mountains. We were able to see across the channel to Navarino and Hoste islands, the nearest land to the Antarctic continent.

Make sure your tour, if you plan on taking one, has canoeing or kayaking included! Because you would love paddling through the calm waters and the spectacular views.

The Beagle Channel! The actual Beagle Channel! This is the place of dreams - I never in a gazillion years thought I'd be gazing at the famous, faraway Beagle Channel. It is a place of history books and it's remoteness makes it even more magical. I felt like a real adventurer/explorer seeing it. In Ushuaia, some families live in shipping... More

Our trip began at Lapataia Bay, where we boarded a catamaran for a 2-hour tour. Hot & cold drinks were provided along with a generous box lunch. Souvenirs were available for purchase. The channel was interesting and beautiful. We were given close-up views of 2 lighthouses, several islands, sea lions, cormorants, and more. We were surrounded by wonderful mountain scenery.... More

Hit the Beagle channel, you never know what you'll see, albatross, petrel or whale, we say a humpback whale jumping right outside the Ushuaia harbour

This is a must if you are in Ushuaia. We had an extra day before our Antarctic Cruise and I cant think of a better way to use it. The scenery was amazing with wildlife all around us. We cruised up to Estancia Harberton and returned buy coach. In retrospect I might have cruised both ways as it was so... More

Take some time to explore this unique exquisiteness of the nature. Stroll along its shores, or get on one of many cruising boats. It's definitely a must see.

A part of the world no one ever goes to. Clear, clean, wildlife everywhere. Truly a place travlers should put on their bucket list. Go in style; take a cruise.

Make the most of it - you will be one of a few people who have made it this far. You are pretty much as far as you can go - Puerto Williams is slightly further south but it's 1/20th the size and hardly counts as a city (although don't say that too loudly in Chile). The Beagle Channel is... More
