Full description

Feel like a local as you catch your own crab in the Beagle Channel and learn the culinary secrets of Patagonian-style crab. Explore a native forest and a traditional fishing village on a guided trip.

After pick-up from your hotel, head to your first stop, a dense native forest by the coast. Walk through the woods to visit an impressive waterfall before returning to the vehicle. Next, see Puerto Almanza, the southernmost fishing port in Argentina.

From there, drive to a small fishing village, where nearly everyone fishes, catching crab, mussels, and other typical mollusks. Meet your local host family and board their boat. Sail to where they lay their traps and pull them up. Hopefully, they’ll be full of crabs. 

On the return to shore, your hosts will prepare a crab in the Patagonian style, boiled in salty seawater, and teach you how to eat it. After lunch, you will head back to your hotel.
