Visit the oldest Ranch of Tierra del Fuego, home of the first English family who lived in Ushuaia among the native indians


Tierra del Fuego or The land of the fire, was inhabited by native indians who fought the missionaries in the late 1800s. The only man who was able to settle in the area was named Thomas Bridges. He founded the Anglican Mission and then he retired 70 km away along the Beagle Channel with his family where he built the first ranch of the Island.

Come with me and visit Harberton ranch which was declared a National Monument in 1999 and learn about one of the most interesting stories of the area. We will drive through valleys and mountains, enjoying a breathtaking scenery and learning about local wildlife including beavers.
We will also drive along the coast of the Beagle channel, overlooking the chilean village of Puerto Williams.
Once in the Ranch, you will be able to visit the Acatashun Museum of marine biology and the historical buildings of the ranch.
Our tour continues to Almanza village, home of the fishermen who catch the famous King Crab of the Beagle channel.
