Along the way, a photo stop is made at the Macarena Cascade.


Tierra del Fuego National Park

Your train ride passes through parts of this rugged wilderness, and reveals the unspoiled natural beauty of the world's southernmost national park. This nature reserve provides refuge to the grey fox, guanaco, Patagonian woodpecker, hawk, and steamer duck. At the conclusion of the 12-mile (19-kilometre) trip, re-board your coach at the Tierra del Fuego National Park Station and head for Lapataia Bay, the southernmost tip of the continent and one of the highlights of your visit. Along the way, photo stops are made at the park's most scenic viewpoints.


Catamaran Cruise

At Lapataia Bay, embark an enclosed catamaran for a two-hour cruise along the Beagle Channel, and an opportunity to view the wildlife of Sea Wolves Island at close range. As your catamaran slowly circles the small, rocky outcrop, observe sea lions, seals and seabirds. Beverages, empanadas, sausage and cheeses are served en route. During the return ride, take in panoramic views of the town and the dramatic mountain backdrop as the catamaran approaches Ushuaia. Upon arrival back at the pier, disembark your catamaran and commence the brief walk back to the ship.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking. Embarking and disembarking the catamaran at Lapataia Bay involves walking on worn planks and negotiating some steps. Due to unpredictable weather, we recommend wearing a sweater or windbreaker and bringing a light raincoat. The tour sequence may vary depending on the number of participants. Depending on the number of ships in port, the catamaran may dock at the Touristic Port, which is located approximately 656-984 feet (about 200-300 metres) from the ship's berth. If possible, the catamaran will dock ship-side. Remember to bring your camera.  The order of venues visited may vary.


Excursions

Discover the dark history of some of Ushuaia' first residents and their fate during this half-day tour of the facility that housed the most dangerous people in Argentina and ride the train they built.


Old Prison Museum

The prison played an important role in the history of Ushuaia; its' staff lived in town, and the prisoners spent much of their time cutting wood in the forest surrounding the prison and building the town. During your visit, learn about the life and hardships of the inmates before the prison was closed down in 1947. Memorabilia from the last inmates of the prison can still be seen in the old cells.


End of the World Train

The prisoners built what we now know as the End of the World Train and worked in the fields of the cold province of Tierra del Fuego. Your tour will continue to the railway station to board the Tierra del Fuego Southern Railway.  This narrow-gauge railway is the original one used by the inmates of the penal settlements, which ran until 1947.  The train crosses the Pipo River, across the 'Canadon del Toro,' and on into the Tierra del Fuego National Park.  At the end of your fascinating train trip, and before returning to the Ushuaia, continue by coach to Bahia Ensenada for a photo stop that affords excellent views of the Beagle Channel and beyond.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking with some stairs to climb and is suitable for guests with limited mobility; however it is not wheelchair accessible.  We suggest guests dress in seasonal attire and wear flat walking shoes. The order of venues may vary.  A minimum number of guests per guide is required to operate this programme.

            

Excursions

Enjoy a half-day four-wheeling tour and enjoy some relaxation at Ushuaia's heights during this scenic, Silver Shore Expedition off-road adventure in the Fuegian wilderness.


Depart the pier aboard a Land Rover Defender vehicle and begin your approximate one-hour drive north along National Route 3 to the glacial valleys area. As you make your way to Carbajal Valley, feast your eyes with the view of Mount Olivia guarding a valley surrounded by snowy peaks, dense forest and marshes, where the off-road will take you for some 45 minutes up to an hour of thrilling tracks.


After approximately half an hour on your way back to the southernmost city in the world, the Land Rover Defender vehicles will climb the Andorra valley to reach the highest neighborhoods facing Ushuaia, from where the views of the city and the ship are both memorable and panoramic. A mountain refuge, surrounded by the Vinciguerra, Sorondo and Alvear mountain chains will open its doors for you to enjoy a light refreshment and an opportunity for those last photos before returning to the ship.


Please note: This Silver Shore Expedition tour involves a moderate amount of walking and rough, off-road driving over bumpy and uneven surfaces. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition and is not suitable for guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. We suggest guests dress in comfortable seasonal attire and wear appropriate footwear for outdoor activities. The vehicles may get stuck in the mud.

Excursions

Join your guide on a trek into the habitats of the Ushuaia beaver population during this late afternoon Silver Shore Expedition.


Depart the pier in your transport for the approximate 30-minute drive in to the valley.  Upon arrival, your guide will orient you to the trails that lie ahead leading to the beavers.


During the 20th century, various pairs of beavers were brought from Canada to try and develop the fur industry. The results were not as good as expected and our furry friends did nothing but get along with each other extremely well and reproduce on a large scale. Naturally, these characters built their dams in the middle of the lakes that they themselves have created, thus changing the landscape beyond all recognition. Of course they are a plague, but there are many who defend them. For us, it's a philosophical question: what fault do the poor beavers have for the miscalculation of humans?


Meanwhile, these fantastic rodents go on enjoying both the landscape around them and our visits. Beaver encounters takes place in the evening, because that's the only time of day when they leave their lodges. Get an up-close look at their habitat along challenging mud tracks, then, after kitting ourselves up on learning about the beavers' lives in Ushuaia, enjoy a delicious stew under the impressive sunset.


Please note: This Silver Shore Expedition tour involves an extensive amount of physical activity and walking, and is recommended for guests in good physical condition.  This tour is not suitable for guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Dinner is included; please let us know of any special requests. Although still daylight, evenings in Ushuaia are very cold. We recommend guests dress in warm clothing and bring gloves, a hat and warm shoes, if possible, trekking shoes or sneakers.  Order of activities may vary.

Ride alongside the slope of Mount Susana towards the Beagle Channel coast and through the forest, enjoying the pure air and a close encounter with Fuegian nature at its best.
