We will be able to appreciate the varied local flora, including different types of trees, bushes, and flowers, and fauna, including both native and introduced animals, such as Andean foxes, beavers, rabbits, and over 90 bird species. In this half-day tour, we will visit Ensenada, Roca Lake, and Lapataia Bay, and walk short distances around the lake, beaver dams, and the bay itself, very close to the Chilean border

Meet the Beavers! During the 20th century, various pairs of beavers were brought from Canada to try and develop the fur industry. The results were not as good as expected and our furry friends did nothing but get along with each other extremely well and reproduce on a large scale. Naturally, these characters built their dams in the middle of the lakes that they themselves have created, thus changing the landscape beyond all recognition. Of course they are a plague, but there are many who defend them. For us, its a philosophical question: what fault do the poor beavers have for the miscalculation of us human?. Meanwhile, these fantastic rodents go on enjoying both the landscape around them and our visits. Beaver encounter takes place in the evening, because thats the only time of day when they leave their lodges. We close up on their habitat along challenging mud tracks, then, after kitting ourselves up on learning about their lives, well be enjoying a delicious stew under the impressive sunset.
