This is a great alternative to visit the forests. The guide will start the tour along the old trails used by the inmates of Ushuaia Prison many years ago, when they used to cut down the trees of the area.
As we go through the lush vegetation of the sub-Antarctic forest, we’ll admire the typical species in display: lengas (high deciduous beech), guindos (evergreen beech), ñires (low deciduous beech), canelos (winter’s bark), notros (fire bush) and calafates (box-leafed barberry), besides a varied bird population: cauquenes (upland geese), Magellanic woodpeckers, southern crested caracaras, white-throated caracaras, chimango caracaras,), and —if we are lucky— we may even see the Andean condor and the black-chested buzzard eagle.
Then, we’ll get by the shores of the Beagle Channel, where the majestic islands Navarino and Hoste (Chile) appear into sight.
Once we are riding back along the coast, we’ll findshell middens – the vestiges of an old nomad culture, the Yamana.
To cap this unforgettable adventure, for those willing to do so, we’ll gallop back to the facilities of the Centro Hípico del Fin del Mundo, enjoying this final emotion.
