Description

Among the destinations for sea kayaking activity, the Beagle Channel stands out for its landscape and its history. The vast eastern area of the Canal brings us closer to the Atlantic, and offers us a sense of freedom and distance from civilization. After just an hour and a half vehicle ride to this region, we might feel as though be have been transported back to the time when the Yamana inhabited the sea at this remote place on the planet.

This is a full day outing in which we will cross the Fuegian forest along Route J, far from Ushuaia. The area offers great possibilities to find flocks of seabirds and, a little more at random but often, sea lions.

Gable Island, among other neighboring islands, provides a spectacular backdrop for sea kayaking activity. The net time of paddling in this area isolated from the noise of civilization is more than four hours, and it will be along an irregular coast with deep bays.

Seize the opportunity! Come to explore the East of the Beagle Channel, where the place and the history are almost intact, to find the End of the World.
