Undoubtedly, the most popular excursion for tourists arriving with family is the visit to the Beagle Channel. From the tourist port, boats depart daily that manage to tour it in 4 hours and allow you to contemplate virgin forests and various islets.

The tour includes a tour of Alicia Island and Wolves, where you can see colonies of this species. Also the Island of the Birds, home to royal and imperial cormorants, and the Bridges Islands, rich in marine diversity.

A mandatory stop is the Lighthouse of the End of the WorldLes Eclaireus”, considered the most emblematic place in the city. This window to the sea is the oldest in Argentina (1884), and is an ideal setting for taking panoramic photographs.

From October to March, Martillo Island joins this visit, where tourists can visit the colony of Magellanic penguins. Modern walkways allow visitors to explore the area and experience this experience in first person.
