Crab Fishing in Ushuaia

We will collect you from your hotel in Ushuaia at 8 am before heading east out of the city. After driving for just a short time, we will join a magical forest road known as Ruta J. We then make a stop in the middle of this wilderness so we can take a delightful two-hour walk to a beautiful waterfall.

After seeing these wonderful cascades, we will return to the vehicle and drive to Puerto Almanza, a picturesque fishing village. This is the southernmost port in all of Argentina. From there, we then take you to the banks of the Beagle Channel, which connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Then we will climb on board the boat of a local family, who will accompany us as we try one of the region's most popular activities: crab fishing. During this unforgettable experience, we will throw the nets into the water and wait to catch this amazing crustacean creature!

We return to the shore of the Beagle Channel, disembark, and then head to the family's house where they will teach us how to prepare the crab in the purest Patagonian style. After the cooking class, we will be served your delicious dish for you to try, accompanied by a drink and dessert. 

The tour finishes by returning to Ushuaia and dropping you at your accommodation around 5 pm.
