Unparalleled off-road experience


"Lakes Off-Road in the afternoon", is a version of our original tour that leaves in the afternoon to enjoy the secrets behind the Southern Andes.

For most of those who write on Tripadvisor, our "Lakes Off-Road" tours, by Canal, are the best excursions of their kind in Tierra del Fuego.

During the Summer version, and so as to make the most of the long days and evenings, we will begin at 3 pm from our office in downtown Ushuaia, near the port.

Expert drivers in off-road driving propose a proper 4x4 journey, and a memorable barbecue in the Fuegian forest. This is an adventure suitable for all sorts of travelers, accessible to anyone who wants to have fun and free themselves from limitations. Fun and enjoyment never depend on the weather: aboard a 4WD vehicle we will cross the forest and the rivers through impossible mud roads, between trees, and by the coast of a lake with unique views.

This is an adventure suitable for all types of travelers! People with reduced mobility or who might simply prefer to rest their legs can explore, photograph and have a feast in the Fuegian forest, between the lakes Escondido and Fagnano, beyond the Andes Range.

Travelers with children aged between 5 and 99 can enjoy this unequaled tour. Families with younger children can opt for a "Tailor-Made" version of this tour.

During this afternoon tour, we will travel in a relaxed and fun way to enjoy the landscape of Tierra del Fuego. We invite you to venture, and to discover ourselves as naturalist explorers or as photographers who discover happiness in a landscape. High up from the Andes Range, we will see Lago Escondido, a small wonder hidden in the bottom of a valley. Then, the gigantic lake Fagnano, imposing and great, will be the center of our day. The "off-road" route and the stops in the forest and on the coast of Lake Fagnano offer fun and enjoy the richness of the landscape.

The company of our guides, the (already famous) food in our refuge by Lake Fagnano and the Argentinian Malbec shared in an affable environment make of this tour a moment to enjoy and revisit in our memory for many years.

*Approximate times. The timing and the order of the tour activities might change if necessary.

*Occasionally, and if our logistics would make it possible, one of the sections to or from the place where the 4×4 adventure takes place might be done in a 20 passenger minibus for added comfort and convenience for the passengers.

Professionalità e simpatia


"Abbiamo partecipato a diverse avventure ed esperienze, tra cui una mezza giornata al Parco Naturale, un'avventura in 4x4, una camminata alla Laguna Esmeralda e in ogni occasione, con guide diverse, abbiamo notato la grande professionalità. I ragazzi, inoltre, sono simpatici e gradevoli, parlano bene l'inglese, danno più di quello che ci si aspetterebbe."
