Beagle Channel navigation with mini trekking by Patagonia Explorer

109 reviews
We work with small groups of up to 18 passengers in a familiar and friendly environment with the company of professional Spanish and English speaking guides.<br>The excursions are carried out with the "KAMS and" TELIENKA "yachts, twin vessels of 15 meters in length, which due to their dimensions allow a maximum approach to the islands allowing preferential sightings.<br>During our tour we visit Isla Alicia, Isla de Pájaros and Isla de Lobos, where we make very close sightings of the fauna of the Beagle Channel. We know the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse built in 1919, a true emblem of the City of Ushuaia. At the end, we disembark at Bridges Island to walk a path of interpretation of flora and birds, telling the story of the Yámanas aborigines. Here are the largest Yámana anthropogenic shells in the region.<br>It also has a panoramic point from where we can observe the magnificence of the Beagle Channel with the City of Ushuaia in the distance.

Another one of the great Ushuaia day hikes! This is a 9.5km return hike and takes 4-5 hours. Laguna Esmerleda is located outside the Tierra del Fuego National Park. But we can assure you that the hike is definitely worth a day of your itinerary. A very muddy affair, but a beautiful emerald (as the name suggests) lake is the reward. A shuttle bus from the main bus station can be bought the day for around $700ARS return ($11USD). It departs Ushuaia around 9am. The bus will take you to and from the start of the hike and returns to Ushuaia mid afternoon. Check the exact return time with the helpful staff at the bus station. There is no entrance fee for this hike.

There are quite a few options of how to get here and how to enjoy it. I took a van from the train because it was rainy and would have been quite muddy. The lake is clearly beautiful, and I saw a ton of great wildlife just walking around the shore.

We took a minivan from Ushuaia to the parking lot where the trail starts. Minivans also run the reverse sense on some scheduled time. The trail is very well marked, scenic and easy to follow. It can be very muddy depending on wheter it has rained before so it is better to wear waterproof boots. After a bit less than two hours walking in a slow pace, we reached the very beautiful Laguna Esmeralda.

The views from here are absolutely breathtaking. The lake was calm and the reflection of the snow covered mountains were a sight to behold.
