After our navigation tour we took a taxi to the tea house and from there we started the hike uphill to the observation point. If you are not used to do hiking it can be hard. But the good thing is that you can go...More

We walked from town to the glacier. Took 3 hours from town to the glacier. Pleasant walk with good views over the city through the valley. Glacier is small but it is what it is.

Took a taxi to the "Tea House" from my hotel and back with no problem. Beautiful hike! Beautiful views! You can actually just walk from town, if you want. Cheap and totally worth it!

There are different answers to this question... If you walk up from the center of town, it takes quite a while. It's maybe an hour and a half up to the chairlift (as it's all uphill). Or you could skip this part by taking a... More
Hola a todos. Me gustaría saber si es buena idea visitar Ushuiaia, Cabo de Hornos y tal vez Punta Arenas a mediados de septiembre. Encontraré tours disponibles en esa época del año? En cuanto al clima, es recomendable ir en septiembre? Gracias por sus respuestas.
