appreciate the surrounding buildings. We continue to La Boca, where we explore its colourful streets due to the ‘conventillos’ and the famous Caminito street. Our last stop

From here, the return to Ushuaia begins, making a stop on the way to admire the Lake Acigami (former Lake Roca), featured by its changed-by-weather water's colour.
In the afternoon, boat trip through the Beagle Channel, gaining an excellent panoramic view of the city surrounded by mountains. During the trip, we spot Birds and Sea lions

During the tour, a walk along the paths located in front of the glacier, allows us to admire this impressive natural wonder from different angles. This tour can be enhanced by
