Description

Let’s paddle through the pristine wilderness of one of the most extreme latitudes on the planet! During this 3-day kayaking adventure, we will explore the remote Beagle Channel in Southern Argentina, situated at the far reaches of the Southern Hemisphere!

The Beagle Channel is a strait that cuts through Chilean and Argentinean territory in Tierra del Fuego, located at the Southern tip of South America.  While Europeans did not explore the territory until Ferdinand Magellan arrived in the 16th century, the area has been inhabited by humans for more than 7,000 years.  These early inhabitants adapted to the harsh climate by learning to navigate coastal waters in order to hunt and fish.

During this 3-day adventure, we will have the opportunity to learn about and develop an appreciation for both the natural and cultural aspects of Tierra del Fuego. As we paddle in solitude along the Beagle Channel, we will have ample opportunities to spot the abundant wildlife of the area, including sea lions and a variety of bird species.  At the same time, we will learn about the traditions and mythology of the native Yamana and Alakaluf who thrived in the area for millennia.  We will discover the technologies they developed in order thrive in one of the most remote regions on the planet.

We will paddle through the Beagle Channel from Ushuaia to Estancia Harberton, a total distance of 80 km.  As a fully autonomous trip, we will carry our supplies in our kayaks, allowing us to fully enjoy the wilderness experience.  At the end of each day, we will pitch our tents in the beautiful forest that lines the shore.  Once we arrive in Estancia Harberton, we will visit the ranch and the Sea Mammals Museum before our transfer back to Ushuaia.

While this is a somewhat demanding trip and previous kayaking experience is recommended, our local guides are familiar with the terrain and are expert kayakers, ensuring that you will have a fun and safe trip.  In addition to the guiding fee, the price includes equipment rental (including kayak, life jacket, paddles, etc.), camping equipment (excluding sleeping bag), food, and all transfers during the trip.

Book now – it will be an unforgettable experience exploring the remote Southern latitudes as you kayak through one of the most breathtaking landscapes on the planet!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
