Description

Join us on this 3-day trip to the solitary coast of the Beagle Channel to see San Pio lighthouse, the southernmost lighthouse in the world.

Located in the beautiful province of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, in the southern tip of South America, this lighthouse is definitely worth visiting. The approach along the edge of Peninsula Mitre is stunning. The steep cliffs and the long beaches in the region hold the stories of the local indigenous tribes that once inhabited the land and of ancient sailors that explored it.

We’ll begin our trip by taking a road trip through the beautiful valleys of the Fuegian Andes. We will drive along the banks of the Beagle Channel until we reach Estancia Moat, the starting point of the trek. As you begin to hike on the secluded banks, you’ll spot just a few travelers and a gaucho or two gathering cattle. After a good hike of about 5 hours, you will reach the campsite near Casa Vieja, a former Gauchos post to enjoy a night in Patagonia.

On the next day, we will begin our hike to the lighthouse. We will walk along beautiful beaches and reach the lighthouse where we will catch some stunning views.  Additionally, we might also spot a few sea lions relaxing on the beach. On the last day of our adventure, we’ll head back to Moat and finally to Ushuaia to end this incredible trip.
