Walking the Beagle Channel
During April 8 – 9, 2005 I walked a section of the coastline along the Beagle Channel down into the town of Ushuaia, located in Tierra del Fuego in Southern Argentina. We were actually trying to cross the Beagle channel to Isla Navarino (belonging to Chile), and attempt a challenging walk called the Dientes circuit, however could not find a way over (there is no ferry service). So we settled on this trek instead which turned out to be a nice walk. We took a taxi for 90 peso for 1.5 hours from Ushuaia then walked back along the coastline for two days. A total straight line distance of over 48km, as measured by my GPS so a little longer as you follow the coastline. I am not aware that this trek even has a name. The beauty of the Beagle Channel on one side and the snowy mountains of Ushuaia on the other is pretty amazing.
