Beagle Channel navigation with mini trekking by Patagonia Explorer

We work with small groups of up to 18 passengers in a familiar and friendly environment with the company of professional Spanish and English speaking guides.<br>The excursions are carried out with the "KAMS and" TELIENKA "yachts, twin vessels of 15 meters in length, which due to their dimensions allow a maximum approach to the islands allowing preferential sightings.<br>During our tour we visit Isla Alicia, Isla de Pájaros and Isla de Lobos, where we make very close sightings of the fauna of the Beagle Channel. We know the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse built in 1919, a true emblem of the City of Ushuaia. At the end, we disembark at Bridges Island to walk a path of interpretation of flora and birds, telling the story of the Yámanas aborigines. Here are the largest Yámana anthropogenic shells in the region.<br>It also has a panoramic point from where we can observe the magnificence of the Beagle Channel with the City of Ushuaia in the distance.

Unfortunately when we were here the home/museum was closed so we only saw it in passing. The home was built by Fortunata Beban in 1913 . According to the stories we heard, the ordered the home as a "kit" from a Swiss catalog company. We really loved the Swiss Architecture of this unique home. BOTTOM LINE: It is located just outside the the main town but within walking distance. It was donated by the Behan family to the city in 1980 and was later moved to this park-like location. At one time it served as a social hall to the community. Worth a quick photo. Not sure if it is permanently closed, The outside looked like it needed some sprucing up. MY RATING: 7/10

This house was moved from somewhere near the centre of Ushuaia to this current site. It hows the history of the Pluschow family who migrated from Croatia to Ushuaia.

You cant miss this place because of the architecture and its out in the open as you approach town. Nothing super special but gives you some good information about the past. Its free. You will spend less than an hour here but worth the stop.

This museum was home of one of the pioneers of Ushuaia. You can take a look at how ancestors of current residents had lived before.
