Ojo del Albino Glacier Trekking

 

mmerse yourself in the adventure with this mountain trekking!

We will pick you up at the hotel early in the morning to go to the beginning of the trail located about 20 kilometers from the city of Ushuaia. After the indications of the guide we will enter the path that will take us through the forest and the peat bogs, crossing the Tierra Mayor Valley until we reach the Esmeralda Lagoon, which, as its name indicates, amazes us with its intense green color.

 

After a photographic break we will walk surrounding the lagoon, we will find many beaver dams along the way. We continue our way until we cross the tree line where the ascension becomes more demanding. The slope is pronounced through a large rocks formation. We are now in a high mountain landscape where we can appreciate the panoramic views of the valley and the Laguna Esmeralda below. We finally reach our destination, the Ojo del Albino Glacier with the lagoon. In this part the glacier is a mass of very cracked flat ice, surrounded by sharp peaks and at the center the melting water with beautiful icebergs.

 

Depending on the conditions of the ice the guide will decide if it is safe to carry out a glacier transit. We will have our Luch Box surrounded by an imposing landscape.

 

After the well-deserved rest, we start our way back through the same path.

 

Includes: crampons - mountain guide - adapted lunch box - hot drinks - trekking staff - RCC insurance - VHF permanent communication system.

Trekking to Vinciguerra Glacier & Témpanos Lagoon

We leave from the hotel, leaving the city 7 km. We will start walking along the Grande stream, we will cross it and begin the ascent through the magical Fuegian forest. Half way we observe how the peat landscapes begin to surround us. We will continue crossing the limit of vegetation where we await the imposing Témpanos Lagoon, the Vinciguerra Glacier and incredible ice caves.

Esmeralda Lagoon

 

We leave from the hotels by the national route #3 towards north, to move away from the Beagle Channel and discover one of the main valleys of the island. There we begin the walk through a peat area until we reach a forest of lenga trees, crossing dams of beavers and up a stream that leads us to the Esmeralda lagoon, nestled between mountains, where we will delight our snack with the glaciers behind us. On our way back, we take advantage of the long summer evening to live intimately with the landscape. We marvel at the forest engineers and then head back to the city to conclude the experience.
