Estancia Harberton Tours

star-4.5

Estancia Harberton
Overlooking the icy waters of Beagle Channel, Estancia Harberton offers a glimpse into the history and wildlife of Tierra del Fuego. The oldest residence in the area, the still-working property dates back to 1887 when it was established by English missionary Thomas Bridges and remains in the hands of his descendants.

The Basics
Explore Estancia Harberton on an hour-long guided tour to learn more about the area’s flora, fauna, and history. Tours take you into some of the site's oldest buildings, including the carpenter shop, shearing shed, and boathouse. You can visit by boat tour from Ushuaia on an excursion that typically visits Bridges Islands to look for sea lions, penguin colonies, and cormorants, before sailing to the estancia to tour the homestead and its marine life museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Estancia Harberton is a must-visit for nature lovers and history buffs.
  • The entrance fee includes a walking tour of the homestead.
  • Be sure to dress in layers and bring a rain jacket, as weather can change quickly in Ushuaia.
  • Due to uneven terrain and the historic nature of the buildings, the estancia is not wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
Estancia Harberton is 52 miles (84 kilometers) east of Ushuaia, or 40 nautical miles (74 kilometers) by sea. You can visit by tour, taxi, or hire a car.

When to Get There
Plan to get an early start for your visit to the homestead, as most guided excursions by boat take the better part of a day. The site itself is open from midmorning to early evening.

Mánacatush Tea-Room
Don’t leave Estancia Harberton without stopping for a cup of tea in its rustic Mánacatush Tea-Room, which operates on the same hours as the estancia. Housed in the original Bridges house, the tea room serves coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and a variety of sweet treats made from old family recipes, as well as a hearty stew for lunch.
Address: Provincial Route J, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego Province, Argentina
