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.

Is this trip right for you?

  • 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.

This National Park is beautiful with amazing views. The meal was sufficient. The Kayaking was disappointing; it is not a kyak but an inflatable boat you paddle.

A fun day trip to kick-start the Antarctic adventure! Easy hike with great views, delicious lunch and afternoon dingy kayak to see highlights of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Led by a magnificent local guide Flo, who taught us about the history and nature of the area along the way.
