This trip will take you down the paths taken by the inmates of the Ushuaia prison in the years when they worked as lumberjack in the forests around Ushuaia.
On horseback, you will ride up along the sediments of a glacier moraine, where you will begin to enjoy exceptional views of the city of Ushuaia and its peninsula, Beagle Channel and Bridges Islands.
The vegetation of the sub-Antarctic forest is truly impressive, and you will spot many different species along the path: the lenga beech tree, the sour cherry tree, winter’s bark, Chilean fire brush and the Magellan berry, in addition to varied flora and fauna. Later you will reach the coast of Beagle Channel, where two Chilean islands, Navarino and Hoste, come into view.
A bit further along the coastal path, will ride to Concheros, an area once inhabited by the Yamanas, an ancient culture of nomads who lived in Tierra del Fuego.
