Itinerary

Day 1: Ushuaia

On your Patagonia tour, our first stop will be to check in at San Martin 245, Ushuaia around 9:00 in the morning to 4:00 in the afternoon. We will be welcomed aboard around 6:00 to 7:00 in the evening with a cocktail party. Right after that, the small cruise ship will depart for your most unforgettable Patagonia tour journey. During the tour, the ship will pass through the Beagle Channel as well as the Strait of Magellan to discover the hidden wonders of the most fascinating wilderness in the world – the Tierra del Fuego and Southern Patagonia. Welcome aboard on a Great Adventure!

Day 2: Cape Horn – Wulaia Bay

The second day of the Patagonia tour will be as exciting and interesting as day one’s tour. As we sail, we will pass through the Murray and Beagle channels. Our destination will be the Cape Horn National Park where we will land if permitted by a pleasant weather. The cape is 425 meters high (1,394 feet) and is a steep, rocky peninsula known in the past as the only route to enter the Pacific Ocean. The small ship cruise will take you literally to the “end of the earth." In June 2005, the park was proclaimed as UNESCO’s World Biosphere Reserve.

Reaching the historical site of Wulaia Bay will be our goal in the afternoon. This place was once the largest settlement of the region’s Yamana aborigines. Its rich past includes Charles Darwin's landing in the area on 23rd of January, 1833 in the voyage of HMS Beagle. Aside from its rich cultural history, the place is also famous for its enchanting foliage and natural features. We will be able to walk through vast expanse of Magellanic forests carpeted with Canelos, Coihes, Lengas, ferns and other fascinating native flora.

Day 3: Piloto and Nena Glaciers

In the morning of the third day of the tour, we will pass through the isolated channels of Brecknock and Ocasion so we could reach the Cockburn channel by afternoon. With full stomachs, after lunch we will be arriving at Chico Sound where we will disembark in Zodiac boats to have a chance of exploring the Alakaluf Fjord. We will get a glimpse of the striking waterfalls as well as the Piloto and Nena glaciers from the sea. At the same time we will discover how the glaciers form and their influence in the natural features of the region’s channels.

Day 4: Magdalena Island – Punta Arenas

We will greet the morning sun by going ashore to Magdalena Island (if the weather permits it). Located in the Magellan Strait, the island played a significant role for explorers and navigators of the past as a constant source of supplies and food. The most notable structure on the island is the lighthouse which guides the ships that pass the strait. On our way to the lighthouse, we will be greeted by unbelievably vast colony of Magellanic Penguins. During April and September, instead of a trip to the Magdalena Island, the cruise will take us to a Zodiac boat ride at Isla Marta to observe the sea lions. After the island visit, the last stop will be at Punta Arenas where we will land at around 11:30 in the morning.

A group of us from Wyoming just did the 5 day Hells Canyon trip with ROW. Great guides (Will, Bethany, Max, Trevor, and Connie) and excellent food. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Just got back from my first whitewater rafting trip on the Lochsa and I'm hooked. My husband and I were both river newbies and we had a blast. All of the guides took very good care of us, the lunch was very good, but Eric is hands down the best guide ever!

The Family Magic Trip down the lower Salmon River in August was AMAZING! The guides were awesome! So knowledgeable, funny, and resourceful. The food was better than most restaurants and my kids loved it (as did I)! The River Jester (Lily) was such a sweet yet stern and fun lady that kept the kids entertained and they loved her. They setup camp for us each day at these amazing beaches! I have never been rafting, and they were there to make it seem easy and doable! I loved that they taught us about the local history and environments. A stop at Spalding was awesome start to the trip! I enjoyed the paddle boats, inflatable kayaks, and the oar boats. I even became part of the swim team but it was a good experience having the guides there to ensure our safety. I loved cliff jumping, the short hikes, swimming the rapids, and swimming in the river with the kids. The time with friends and family was great. It was so relaxing and good to meet so many different people I feel that I can call my friends now. Best part was sleeping under the stars with my family hearing the rushing river next to us. The guides made the trip so personal and they were caring! Thanks so much Mark, Max, Connie, Jonas, Curtis, Lily, and Bethany! Absolutely recommend going on a trip with ROW and I plan to with my children again, it was worth every penny! Thanks Jason for helping plan the trip for me!

The Ledbetter family plus Gary Braun had the best vacation week ever on the Salmon with Peter, Jonas, Maddy, Mark, Katie, Miles and Cassandra - we will work with Row Adventures for life. As Mark said, "we want to give you more than just a great trip...we want to change lives." Lots of love

ROW Adventures is a great way to get off the beaten path and experience our wonderful wilderness with a set of wonderful guides. I am not sure which was the best part of our 6 day trip on The River of No Return; the guides, the food, meeting new people, the river... But all seemed to fall into a wonderful rhythm that perfectly complimented each other. My family was very concerned that we even signed up for this type of vacation. It is one thing to go floating in the wild in your young, but quite different when you are many years down the road and suffer from chronic pain. For some reason, the cooler water if the river, time to give back to ur soul, the daily stops to visit the hot springs, the wonderful healthy great tasting food, and encouragement of our guides all seemed to bring back the youth of our younger days gone by. We smiled, giggled, shared great drink and laughed at the joke after joke. But most of all, it was the guides that made our trip as each day unfolded. Each guide brought back the youth of our soul through the morning stretches, the stories of past explorers, and the shared fishing tackle! Now my next wish is to embark on a new ROW adventure with my son so we can share a new chapter of complete happiness in our beautiful wilderness...Maybe Hells Canyon or their adventure that offers trail riding and fast river rafting! Either way, it is something for everyone no matter what your age!
