Visit the oldest estancia in Tierra del Fuego, an imposing country house. Contemplate the gracious Magellanic and Gentoo penguins, closing the day with a scenery hike along the coast a river, reaching to exclusive isolated spots.
We depart in the morning taking National Route 3 to its intersection with “J” Route, where we turn into the coastal zone, bordering Lasifashaj´s river valley, almost to the mouth of the Beagle Channel in Brown Bay. We get to the estancia Harberton, where its manager, one of the founder´s great-grandsons receive us warmly. We walk around the establishment, learning about its history of wool activity.
Later, we take a Zodiac boat to visit a huge colony of Magellanic and Gentoo penguins. Rambling around these gracious seabirds respectfully, we learn about their life and the ways of conservation. Back in the ranch, we go to Cambaceres Bay and hike from there along the coast of the river Lasifashaj up to a rough waterfall product of the narrowing of the river valley. Finally, we visit Puerto Almanza, the most southern fishing port in Argentina.
