Tierra del Fuego Sights



Canal Fun Review

A rougher, more unconventional tour of the lake area goes to Monte Olivia, the tallest mountain along the Canal Beagle, rising 4,455 feet above sea level. You also pass the Five Brothers Mountains and go through the Garibaldi Pass, which begins at the Rancho Hambre, climbs into the mountain range, and ends with a spectacular view of Lago Escondido. From here you continue on to Lago Fagnano through the countryside past sawmills and lumber yards. To do this tour in a four-wheel-drive truck with an excellent bilingual guide, contact Canal Fun; you'll drive through Lago Fagnano (about 3 feet of water at this point) to a secluded cabin on the shore and have a delicious asado, complete with wine and dessert. In winter they can also organize tailor-made dog sledding and cross-country skiing trips.
