Spend a day adventuring at the “end of the world” as you explore the mountainous landscapes, glacial lakes, and natural wonders of Tierra del Fuego National Park with a guided hike along Ensanada Bay and a canoe ride on the Lapataia River.
After being picked up from your hotel, head out for a backcountry adventure among snow-capped peaks of Tierra del Fuego National Park. The craggy peaks, boggy valleys, and crystalline lakes are filled with opportunities for adventure at the southernmost national park in the world.
Begin at Ensanada Bay, where you can take in sweeping views out over the Beagle Channel, and then get to trekking. Your 4.5-mile (7.2-km) hike on the Senda Costera takes you up and along the rugged coastline. Keep your eyes peeled for the native flora and fauna. Guanaco, foxes, and Austral Parakeets all call these subantarctic forests home, and be sure to watch for the middens, or shell heaps, left behind by the ancient Yamanas people.
Enjoy a picnic lunch on the shores of Roca Lake with the majestic mountains of Patagonia as your backdrop. After your meal, grab your canoe and put in on the banks of the Lapataia River. This scenic, winding cruise takes you through some of the park’s most postcard-worthy viewpoints. Paddle behind your guide as you learn about the natural history and geology of the region all the way to the watery expanse of Lapataia Bay.
