Travel back in time during our guided walking tour of Harberton homestead, a National Historic Monument.
On this tour you will learn about the history of the Bridges family and its relationship with the natives, you will visit the Park (the first nature reserve in Tierra del Fuego), the family cemetery, replicas of Yámana huts, the old shear shed, the carpentry, the house of the oldest boat built in Tierra del Fuego and the beautiful garden of the main house.
Immerse yourself in the depths of the sea during the guided visit of the Acatushun Museum of Birds and Marine Mammals, one of the most important collections in the World with more than 2800 specimens of mammals and 2300 specimens of birds.
Here you will find life size representations of underwater animals and part of the extensive collection of skeletons collected by Dr. Natalie Goodall and her interns along the Fueguinas shoreline.
If you are inclined to, and have time, you can visit the Laboratory and the Bone House, where work with the specimens is done.
This year, we decided to move Manacatush Tea House to the top of the hill, and integrate it with Acawaia Restaurant, in this way leaving room for a new Historical Museum in the west wing of the Original Main House.
It will be a walk through the past of the Bridges - Goodall family, where you will find elements such as the wedding dress of the first marriage between whites in Tierra del Fuego, the first postal stapheta and the various tools used to build this place from its inception.
A magical experience on this unique island of the Beagle Channel called Yekapasela, also known as Martillo Island, walking among a colony of more than 10,000 Magellanic penguins and about 100 Gentoo penguins.
Occasionally, small groups of King penguins visit the island.
Although the island belongs to Estancia Harberton, this tour is concessioned to Piratour company. Prices and availability are NOT managed by Estancia Harberton.
