  • Please visit with any of the navigation along the Beagle. We did the Penguin Colony of Martillo island and on the return trip, went past the lighthouse and the islands of the birds and wolves. The boat is stops a good time there so is can take photos. We had a day quite ugly and with extreme cold and wind, but even so, all went out to take the obligatory fotito.

  • We made the boat ride to meet the Beagle Channel and the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse. Recommend to everyone because the cost benefit pay, since all activities in Ushuaia are very expensive. The ride leaves the Pier downtown, with 1 stop on the way to a small island and is also the outline at the lighthouse. Great for photos and enjoy the city by far.
