A great Tierra del Fuego experience - albeit a little wet

There are plenty or reviews already, so is there really anything to add? Not really. I can only recommend you to visit the place, if you have proper shoes or rather boots. And I... read more

There are plenty or reviews already, so is there really anything to add? Not really. I can only recommend you to visit the place, if you have proper shoes or rather boots. And I can only recommend not to travel on your own, but in a group. Why? Well, I went in a small group and one member got stuck... More

Beautiful Ensenada Bay offered superb views of the Beagle Channel. The Beagle Channel was named after the ship that carried English Naturalist, Charles Darwin. The channel boasts towering snow-capped mountains. We were able to see across the channel to Navarino and Hoste islands, the nearest land to the Antarctic continent.

The track to reach the lake is really nice, but there is a lot of mug on the way so take rubber boots! You can also enjoy the ride to observe the beevers on your way back if you go around 6pm during spring time. The lake itself has a great blue/green color, especially when touched by the sun...really peacefull... More

It's a total 10 km trekking (round trip). You can experiment mud, ice/snow, water, tundra, rocks.. and great breathtaking landscapes in the way. When you get at the lagoon you're gonna feel alive and thankful for taking the journey. It's an easy/ medium difficulty trekking path with just a small difference of altitude, not much. But you have to be... More

I seriously underestimated how muddy it would actually be. I thought people were being dramatic or that there were a few muddy spots. Nope - don't let the beginning of the trail fool you. It pretty quickly becomes a mud pit. It's a great adventure with a spectacular view at the end, but leave anything you want to ever wear... More

This was definitely the nicest hike around Ushuaia! Beaver dams, rivers, mountains, forest and the greenish laguna Esmeralda - fantastic nature. Also, it is one of the cheapest activities in Ushuaia.

The laguna esmeralda hike needs you to take a shuttle (~200A$ return) to that place. The hike itself is not that hard but the ground is muddy and wet and you end getting really dirty. You might slip or fall as well. The view of the lake is nice but if you have been to El Chalten or El Calafate... More

You take the color with your memories! Beautiful views!! Mountains surrounding the lake keep snow in spite of being in summer. Don´t miss the tour.

After a little muddy trek,comes a very beautiful scenery. It will be excellent if sunny day . And it's allowed camping there,that's great. And you need a boots ,it's better to cross the muddy trek.
