“A place for relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We visited Lago Roca on 9 December 2013. Beautiful lake. Quiet a distance to walk. We saw families camping. Some were having barbecue and some were dancing with loud music. There was a cafe and restrooms for convenience.

“We really enjoyed the hike from Lago Roca!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

In Tierra del Fuego National Park, there is a four mile round trip hike called Hito XXIV. This leads over a gorgeous trail to the Chilean border. We hiked it on a sparkly day and really enjoyed it. The trail, for us, was 1 1/2 to 2 hours each way with plenty of time to stop and enjoy the views. Then, you get to the sign for the Chilean border. The first part of the trail is quite easy, b ut it gets a little more challenging as you go over a few rocks and follow the yellow sign markings. Buses from Ushuaia take you hear for hiking. You might also consider lunch or a dessert at the Laga Roca Restaurant. The trail is marked "moderate" and this is what we found---not just a stroll, but certainly doable for a couple retired people like us! We would highly recommend this.

“Crystal clear, beautiful in any weather....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Rock Lake is the result of glacial moraine activity and shares a border with both Argentina and Chile. It’s wide in places but the most beautiful aspect is the colour on a sunny day. We had a gloomy day and its true colour remained under the spell of the low hanging grey cloud.

A great way to take in the wonderful views is drinking espresso and eating empanadas at the Alakush Visitors Centre café. It's airy interior and their panoramic windows frame the stunning backdrop of mountain peaks and lake together.If you have the time, there are some wonderful hiking trails that give an even better perspective of this lanscape.

Enjoy your experience!

“Stunning scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Snow capped mountains surrounding a mirror lake. Nice bird life on the lake. Nearby visitors centre worthy of a visit & hot chocolate!
