A short break adventure at the end of the earth
So much more than just a launch pad for Antarctic expeditions, Ushuaia and its surrounds offer a whole lot to adventurous travellers. And the best bit? You only need a day to experience the highlights of the region. Join a local guide and journey into the wild landscapes of Tierra del Fuego National Park where you’ll hike, canoe and dine on the riverbank in a heated dome (Malbec and epic views included). You don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth for an adventure, but if you’re after awe-inspiring, untouched scenery, it’s certainly worth the trip.
Before you head off on your Antarctic expedition on board the Ocean Endeavour, take the chance to get to know Ushuaia and its surrounds – you’ll soon see it’s well worth the visit!
Venture into the rugged landscapes of Tierra del Fuego National Park on a guided day tour, trekking along a scenic coastal path and canoeing along the Lapataia and Ovando rivers.
Enjoy a lunch to remember in a heated dome tent on the banks of the Lapataia River, dining on dishes made with local ingredients and paired with Malbec wine.
This Short Break Adventure is a ‘join in’ group departure, which means you are not accompanied by an Intrepid group leader – our local representative fills this role – and the configuration of any fellow travellers in the group might change during the trip.
This itinerary has been designed for passengers travelling to Antarctica on board the Ocean Endeavour, embarking in Ushuaia. The tour concludes at your Ocean Endeavour hotel in time to join the group briefing for your voyage.
This trip will run with a minimum of one person, so you may be joined by other travellers booked on the same date as you, or you may be on your own.
This trip is operated by one of our local partners in Argentina and therefore you may be joined by a mixture of Intrepid-booked passengers and other travellers during activities.
Information may be delivered in English and Spanish, or just English depending on the requirements of the group.
This trip includes trekking and canoeing. Please ensure you bring sturdy walking shoes and comfortable clothes.It’s best to wear layers at all times of the year in case conditions change during the day.
To make the most of the trip, it's best if you have at least a moderate level of fitness.
