TOURIST RANCHES



HARBERTON RANCH (including Almanza)
Ninety kilometers east of Ushuaia, on National Route Nº3, may be found Tierra del Fuego's oldest ranch: Estancia Harberton. The lands it is built on were a gift from President Roca's government to Rev. Thomas Bridges, for his contributions in exploring the area and in establishing a harmonious relationship with the native population

On leaving Ushuaia, you drive along the slopes of Monte Olivia, a mountain that is extremely imposing at close quarters. You continue along the Carbajal Valley, where you find the greatest peat bog on the island, as well as the winter sports centers of Altos del Valle, Valle de Los Huskies, Refugio Nunatak, Tierra Mayor, Las Cotorras and the Cerro Castor Complex, until you get to the foot of the Rancho Hambre, where you find the access to the Route J.

Then you go eastward along a valley, past peat bogs, rivers and lakes, surrounded by lush vegetation. The track is narrow, with a succession of curves and steep climbs; Thirty kilometers of this driving will take you to Puerto Almanza.

When you get there, a magical coastal landscape will unfold before your eyes with a deep-blue Beagle Channel whose south coast displays the town of Puerto Williams (Chile) located on Navarino island.

You proceed along the road, and at the next fork you take the east branch. The lush green valley becomes an undulating grassy plain, with small patches of "árboles bandera" (flag-trees), so-called due to their horizontally directed growth pattern, the result of the predominant and permanently blowing west wind.

After you have made your way through all these delights, you will arrive at Estancia Harberton.

The main ranch house is located in a protected bay. Its original building, carefully preserved, is wooden with an exterior lining of iron sheeting. The beautiful gardens containing most of the local flora species are well worth a visit.

The traveler will be invited to stroll through the ranch, and will be informed on its past and current activities. Then he will be invited to have a delicious tea with home-made cookies, after which he will return to the city.

MOAT RANCH
At kilometer 115, after crossing the bridge of the same name, you enter Estancia Moat. This is another area populated by the descendants of another Anglican pastor, Rev. Lawrence, one of Ushuaia's pioneers. From this ranch you can see the Beagle Channel and Picton Island, in Chile.
