Description

When we say Peninsula Mitre is an open sky museum we are not exaggerating.

The singularity of this place doesn´t comes only from its remoteness geographical location, isolation and scenic beauty; but also by the existence in the area of:
- Abandoned farms from the early XX century
- Archaeologic sites from millenary etnias (HAUSH and YAMANA)
- Remains of old shipwreck from 2 and 3 centuries ago
- Vestiges of gold seekers
- Amazing amount of wild horses and cattle
- Native wildlife: Andean Condors, Sea Lions, Albatrosses, foxes and more

Due to the extension of Peninsula Mitre (approximately 3.202 square km) there are several options to explore the area, as well as countless possible combinations of activities and modes of transportation.
We organize in this area expeditions including trekking, horse riding, sailing and helicopter flights.

Trekking Expeditions
We offer departures starting from 5 days to visit either the south coast or the northern coast of the Peninsula. By the south coast we go to San Pio Cape or further to Slogget Bay. In the north coast we can reach Policarpo River and Rio Bueno Post.
Also we offer traverses to unite both coast but with durations of 15+ days.

Horse Ride Expeditions
This sort of expeditions only take place along the north coast. Starting from 5 days to visit Rio Bueno Post. The best option is to go 10 days to reach the easternmost tip of the peninsula at Thetis Bay and Sand Diego Cape.

Sailing yacht Expeditions
We organize itineraries visiting the most scenic bays of the south coast of the peninsula up to Thetis Bay. Itineraries start form 3 days long.

Helicopter Expeditions
Is the most flexible and fastest way to explore the area. We offer overflights with lunch starting from one day long tours.

Combined expeditions
The south coast due to its rugged geography and small rocky beaches is more suitable for helicopter and sailing boat explorations. The north coast in the other hand offers a much flatter terrain with long and wide beaches. This coast is ideal to enter the peninsula horse riding or hikking without big inconvenient.
Because of these reasons an exploration trip to visit the most remarkable places of the area requires to combine different modes of transportation.
