SAN PABLO CAPE & ROLITO RANCH
Every land has its own secrets but not everyone is chosen to know them: a lighthouse in a lonely cape, a mysterious sunken ship for 40 years and a distinguished antique “estancia” are some of the icons that reveal the unknown stories of Tierra del Fuego. Very early in the morning departure from Ushuaia following National Route 3 and crossing The Andes through the Garibaldi Pass. We stop by the little town of Tolhuin, heart of the island, to visit La Unión Bakery. This is a traditional meeting point for both, locals and visitors, and it is part of the charm of this village. By midday we come to the Provincial Route “A”, where we took a gravel road heading toward the Atlantic Ocean and the San Pablo Cape. At this point, we hiked up to an isolated mountain with an abandoned lighthouse at the end. Climbing to the top of this beacon we will appreciate “Desdemona”, an abandoned ship for almost 40 years ago which invites us to sail through time. It happened on a cold winter morning in1983 when this enormous craft ran aground on the shores of the Argentine Sea. After exploring this mysterious giant, we visit Estancia Rolito. This lovely ranch, that keeps the spirit of a family business based on sheep farming tradition, is the first ranch to open its gates to rural tourism.
Visit the best street art & Graffitis in Buenos Aires! A great circuit through out the south area of the city; more than 40 different graffitis in La Boca, San Telmo and Monserrat neighbourhoods. Internacional artists from all around the world painted this beautifull city: we invite you to discover why Buenos Aires is one the best cities to street art.
Departure from Touristic Pier sailing through the wide Ushuaia Bay until reaching the Beagle Channel, through Paso Chico. There we sail around both Birds and Seals islands (they belong to Bridges archipelago). Arriving at the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse we can appreciate imperial and rocky cormorant’s colonies. We continue sailing towards the East enjoying wonderful landscapes of the channel and mountains; at this point we will see Puerto Almanza on the Argentinean coast and Puerto Williams on the Chilean coast. Then we will arrive at Isla Martillo where we will observe a colony of Magellanic penguins. We continue sailing to Estancia Harberton where we disembark to visit the ranch and the Acatushún Austral Marine Mammal and Bird Museum (not included). The return to the Touristic Pier in Ushuaia is a ground transfer by Complementary Route J and Route 3; a stop at the lookout point of Garibaldi Pass will allow us to observe and photograph the lakes of the area: Escondido and Fagnano. Important: navigation from the Touristic Pier located in Ushuaia to the Estancia; ground transfer to return to the same pier.
