The experience begins by flying over the bay of Ushuaia , gaining altitude to enter the Olivia River Valley , appreciating the majestic Mount Olivia and the characteristic Mount Cinco Hermanos .
In the middle of this white and inhospitable environment, we crossed the impressive Carbajal valley , accessing a second mountain range that houses, like a natural jewel, a captivating mirror of water, called Laguna Esmeralda for its extraordinary color.
The tour continues taking us into the interior of the island of Tierra del Fuego until we reach the head of Lago Escondido . From there, we also flew over the Santa Laura, San Ricardo and Margarita lagoons. We observe the town of Tolhuin, in the heart of the island, and border Lake Fagnano, one of the 5 largest in South America.
Cerro Cornú , one of the highest mountains in the area, will be the gateway to Puerto Almanza, a small town of artisanal fishermen. There we landed on a small street that runs parallel to the Beagle Channel and that seemed to be the only hint of civilization among so much natural exuberance.
Then, we begin our return along the coast, seeing the Estancia Túnel and, in the distance, the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse , located on a rocky, firm and solitary archipelago in the middle of the Beagle Channel.
