Peninsula Mitre is located in the extreme south-east of Argentina, in the Tierra del Fuego Province, where the American continent ends and the Andes mountains meet the sea. It is one of the few places on the planet that has managed to resist the advance of humanity, preserving its landscapes in their largely unspoiled and pristine state for centuries.
It is a mythical land that is extreme from a geographic standpoint, as well as in terms of climate and accessibility. A coast laden with the intense energies generated by the sea and winds, endless peat bog, bushy forests, and abandoned estates, to name a few characteristics. From ancient shipwrecks discovered by explorers in the past to the original villages of the nomadic Haush people, this region’s scenery and history are both cultured and unspoiled.
It is possible to find landscapes that are among the most fascinating and original in the world on this territory. Cabot Beach is the most eastern point, and Cerro Campana, located in the southern Montes Negros range, is the highest peak in the country at 1026 meters.
In this area, the only settlements are the Estancia Policarpo on the north coast (on the Policarpo River), the Estancia Bahia Aguirre on the south-west coast, the Estancia Bahia Sloggett on the further-west coast, and the Estancia Puerto Rancho on the further-west coast (close to the southernmost point of the island, Cabo San Pio).
In order to uncover the myths and mysteries of this hidden and enchanted land, adventurous travellers will have the opportunity to embark on a 10-day horseback riding adventure in order to escape civilization and discover the true explorer hidden within them.
Peninsula Mitre can be explored in a variety of ways from Ushuaia, all of which are incredible. Only a limited number of departures are available during the summer months (November to March). Please contact us if you require further information!
