Three amazing activities a must to do in Patagonia: The visit to the incredible Perito Moreno in El Calafate, and two visits in Ushuaia: Tierra del Fuego National Park and Beagle Channel Navigation
This activity can be done in 2 full days or three days for a more relaxing tour. In El Calafate, we will enjoy a wonderful visit to Perito Moreno Glacier. El Calafate is 80 km from Perito Moreno Glacier along a paved road (50 km.). The last 30 are within Los Glaciares National Park.During the first 40 km you travel through the Patagonian steppe. Then, once you enter the National Park there is a noticeable change in the vegetation, now basically formed by nires (nothofagus antartica), guindos (nothofagus betuloides) and lengas (nothofagus pumilio); some isolated canelos (drimys winteri) and many colored flowers, among them the intense red colored notro (embothrium coccineum), the typical flower of the Andean Patagonian Forest. Once at the Glacier, the visitor is overwhelmed by the impressive spectacle and can appreciate the many unforgettable vistas of the glacier from the walkpaths. There is a restaurant, a snack bar, restrooms and a pay campsite within the Moreno Glacier area. This is a full day excursion.From Ushuaia, we offer two amazing activities:This excursion will start when we pick you up from your hotel, to take you to the Tierra del Fuego National Park; this is located just 12 km away from the city of Ushuaia. When we enter in the park, you can take the Train of the End of The World. The train is optional in the excursion to the park. Once in the park, you are going to see different species of vegetation for our pretty characteristic forest, something as bushes, beech trees, ñires, Indio’s beard and flowers in an extension of 63.000 hectares. During our trip we will make different stops, to enjoy the panoramic views and take pictures. From there, we are going to go to Verde Lake and then to Lapataia Bay, places where you could see beaver dams and peatlands. On our way back, we will stop on La Roca.Finally, a wonderful Beagle Channel Boat Navigation:Tierra del Fuego National Park; this is located just 12 km away from the city of Ushuaia. When we enter in the park, you will start the ride called Train of the End of The World. You will ride the same trails as the prisoners who were looking for wood, to heat the old presidio. This ride would be in an incredible landscape composed by forest, rivers, peatlands, and the ruins of an Indian settlement. Also we will stop on the Macarena´s waterfall before going into the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The train is optional in the excursion to the park.
