FIRST HIKE ” COAST TRAIL” LOW DIFFICULTY – 40 MINUTES LONG ” : We start the first hike at Ensenada Bay, taking part of the Shore trail while enjoying the awesome views of the Beagle Channel and its wildlife. At this point, it is possible to see the flag trees ( trees bent by the strong Pacific Ocean winds). From there it is possible to observe the Murray Channel which was crossed by Charles Darwin and Captain Fitz Roy in 1830 when they discovered the Beagle Channel and interacted with the natives. It is also possible to get up close to archeological sites of 8000 years old, where the natives used to build their shelters. SECOND HIKE ” CAÑADON DEL TORO”-LOW DIFFICULTY – 30 MINUTES LONG”: After hiking through the peacefull Andean forest with an amazing landscape of mountains we will get to a viewpoint to appreciate one of the cascades of Rio Pipo, melted water that comes from the glaciers that empties into the Beagle Channel.

I suggest you bring at least $20 USD for a snack at this stop. After our stop we will cross the Lapataia River, visiting the Cormoranes Archipelago, the Green Lagoon and the Ovando River. Finally, we will drive to the Lapataia Bay, the end of the Panamerican Highway, where we will see the famous Alaskan mileage -marker sign before returning to the ship.
