Description

"Lakes Off-Road", the original and authentic, is our fun and intense way to know the secrets behind the Southern Andes.

For most of those who write on TripAdvisor, it is the best excursion of its kind in Ushuaia.

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 full day 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 will make of this tour a day to remember.

Amazing time in Ushuaia with Canal Fun!

"I did 3 tours with Canal Fun in February 2019 - 1) Gable Island + penguin colony + Canoeing, 2) Tierra Del Fuego + Canoeing and 3) Lakes off road. All 3 tours were different and it’s worth doing them all if you have the time to get a well-rounded taste of Ushuaia. The food and wine on all trips were excellent - it’s amazing what they can conjure up in the (semi) wilderness. Shout-out to Valentin who was our guide in the park and one of the most engaging guides I’ve encountered in all my years of traveling around the world. Highly recommend this company and their tours in Ushuaia!"

Amazing organisation

"I was in Ushuaia for only a couple of days and travelling alone. I found Canal Fun through trip advisor and they met every expectation and more. I took two trips with these guys. Highly recommended. They are fun, friendly, knowledgeable and well organised. Couldnt fault them and would definitely do it all again! Brilliant."

Simply the best

"I tried several different companies on my recent visit to Patagonia and I must say Canal Fun & Nature was one of the best. I thought I'd try something different rather than conventional excursions and I was not disappointed. A fun-packed day in a 4x4 sliding about in the mud and splashing along lake shores - not for the faint-hearted. What I particularly liked about the excursion was the friendly nature of the guides, no pretensions, no showing-off. They had a great attitude, showing us what they knew and could do in a natural manner. Thanks guys!"

"I did two trips with this outfit recommended by my AIR BNB hosts who are 30 year residents of Ushuaia. Had a BLAST both times. Took the 4x4 trip to Lagos Escondido and Fagnano. Learned so much about Tierra del Fuego. Small car that held 8 guests was very comfortable. We had lots of info given to us and made several stops along the way to see things of interest including flora. The 4x4 part was great fun and the trek was challenging. Driver excellent. He cooked us a delish asado out at their refuge that included chiripa no, steak and wine among other food. Didn´t have to eat dinner that night. The small groups of this outfit make the day really fun and enables you to get to know people. HIGHLY RECOMMEND or did I say that already. Apologize that I didn´t catch the name of our guide but he was wonderful The next day I did the trek through Tierra del Fuego National Park with Valentin, then we rafted through Lapataia Bay. What a beautiful day despite cold, snow and rain ‘ we trekked on. Valentin is great fun. We had a snack in the snow, a fabulous lunch after the trek with typical Argentine food and more great Patagonian wine, then paddled down the Lapataia Bay which is a level 1, easy, calm experience in a place that takes your breath away. Thank you Valentin for a beautiful day. This group was a little larger, but not by much and again a great way to make new friends and not feel like you are being herded."

"Fabulous company all around! I had nothing booked upon arrival. Told them what I wanted to do First tour was a half day 9 to 2 trip to the national park. 4 people total on tour Hiked in several areas in the park then had an amazing meal before seeing the beach and heading back. Very prompt. The second trip I took was to the lakes over the Garibaldi pass. This was 4 x4 off roading. 4 people with 2 guides. Again. Fab lunch cooked to order. Canal fun worked with me as I was not sure what time I would be able to come off the ship. Once I knew I was able to contact them with WhatsApp ( they set this up with me before I left) and I booked with them directly. Their office is minutes from the dock walking. They held my luggage while I was in the trip (8 to 4 as I had a late flight). They then stopped at the office, picked up my bags, and took me to the airport. Their guides are passionate about what they do are are very knowledgeable! Highly recommend them for any tours in Ushuaia!!"

"We had 2 tours with Canal: lakes off-road and a mini tekking at Tierra del Fuego National Park. Both were great experiences. Staff were kind, helpfull and knowledgeable. We love the lakes off road because we had a chance to go to places that we can’t go by ourselves . And the mini trekking was very interesting because we had an history lesson. If you go to ushuaia don’t miss this Team. Thank for all!!"

Goede organisatie, geweldige gidsen en heerlijke lunch

"I took 2 full-day tours with Canal Fun (the 4x4 tour and the Tierra del Fuego NP Tour) and I can say they are the best in Patagonia, in my experience! I was with Sergio on the 4x4 trip and Valentin & Nacho for the Tierra del Fuego hike and canoe trip. They all spoke excellent English, were very knowledgeable, and had a real passion for this environment! And, in addition to great guiding and a fun itinerary, and delicious, hot meal is included! I don’t think that you can go wrong in choosing this company for your tours in Ushuaia! "

"We booked 3 trips with Canal Fun: National Park ( half day), Laguna Esmeralda trekking + beavers and Off road Lakes. They also helped us to reserve the Wlaking with Pinguins in Martillo Island with a third party company Pira tour, the only company that has permissions to get off on the island and allow you to walk with the Penguins. Our contact with Canal Fun was very easy. Carlos was very kind and patient in answering all our emails. Our guide Joaquim was amazing! He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited. He integrated the whole group, sent photos to our emails, and made everyone feel very comfortable. Eduardo was our off road driver and guide! Very special experience .He and Joaquim cooked us a great Christmas meal, parrilla Argentina, delicious beef and chorizo plus Fin del Mundo Malbec wine in a cabaña in the middle of the forest!! Canal Fun thank you very much for a wonderful time!!"

Great tour, expansive vistas and delicious food.

"My son and I opted for this tour as a lighter stop on our itinerary of more physically demanding treks. It was fun and relaxing, with loads of beautiful landscape overlooks, most especially along the coastline of Lake Fagnano. The 4x4 aspect was pretty exciting and the multi-course meal cooked over an open fire was one of the best we had in Ushuaia. Strongly recommended!"

"at first you may : "yeah, 4x4 it's just gonna be a ride in the woods or so with beautiful landscapes". But it's way more than that, it's really fun! And you get the real utility of a 4x4 vehicule, screaming, laughing and being like "we'll never get through this it's impossible!!". And, you still have the incredible landscapes. A must do."

everything was well-organised

"Io ho organizzato tutto il viaggio su internet. Loro sono molto collaborativi nel capire le tue esigenze e proporti le migliori escursioni. Prima di partire ho dovuto cancellare una escursione perché il volo aveva cambiato orario di partenza. Mi hanno riaccreditato immediatamente i soldi che io avevo già versato. Ho fatto con loro una splendida escursione ai laghi Fandango ed Escondido su 4x4. La nostra guida era Franco, molto simpatico! Ci ha preparato un simpatico barbecue in una capanna nel bosco, con vino e dolci. Il giorno dopo, avevo solo mezza giornata a disposizione, ho visitato il Parco della Terra del Fuoco insieme alla guida Ferrari, da vero bravo e preparato, ve lo consiglio. "

It is really worth it.

"If you like this kind of attraction don't miss their 4x4 tour to the lakes. We had an unforgettable day full of fun, stunning views, breathtaking nature, and for lunch we had a lot of great meat and wine! Our driver was Franco, he is very friendly, very professional driver and guide, he made us laugh all the way, with that he gave us all-embracing explanations and facts."
