Today, we share with you 3 reasons to navigate the Beagle Channel:
- A unique perspective of the city of Ushuaia and the Patagonian nature:
The navigation of the Beagle Channel begins at the port of Ushuaia. From here, one can see the city getting smaller and smaller, crowned in the background by the great Andean mountains.
It shudders to think that this was the same view that the first settlers who came to populate Ushuaia enjoyed. From here, you can get the best panoramic images of the city.
As we move away from the mainland, we start to get deeper into the End of the World, its incredible islets and the Patagonian nature. The landscapes from here are absolutely breathtaking!

There are different voyages and routes to explore the Beagle Channel. Each one adapts to the interests of each traveler, but there is one thing they all have in common: the scenery is idyllic and unforgettable.
Whether on deck or enjoyed from the seats inside, sailing the Beagle Channel is an activity that adapts to the tastes of the whole family. Although nature is the main protagonist, the landscape is the perfect scenery to enjoy a unique moment. Nothing better than capturing it forever with a photograph.
