Upon arrival to Ushuaia, you will be picked up at the airport and transferred to your accommodation where you will have time to get settled in. At 06:00 pm, you will be picked up from the hotel to Ushuaia Blanca.
Once arriving at the complex, you will be receiving a briefing about the safe driving and the land as you are going to explore the beautiful surroundings by quadricycles. Marvel at the incredible landscapes while you cross rivers and lush forests.
Then, enjoy a short walk before returning to the quadricycles and getting to the cabin Ernesto Krund, a replica of the refuge of the first postman on the island. Listen to the story of this pioneer while you enjoy a glass of hot wine and a delicious dinner.
You will then return to the complex.
Day 2: Tierra del Fuego National Park - Yámana Meeting
Pristine nature, silence, the sounds of flying birds, the clarity of water, native trees, local stories, a unique lunch at the End of the World and much more are the feelings you will experience in this impressive natural and historical monument during 4 hours.
The adventure starts at the hotel, where the guide will pick you up to start your journey to the National Park. Once we get there, the “lengas” and “guindos” will surprise us along the road. We walk along an interpretive trail, accompanied by our great guides, who know the place and local history. From there we will go to Lake Roca – Errazuriz to appreciate its waters, the surrounding forest formed by specimens that exceed 300 years and the limits with Chile. In the vicinity is the Alakush Visitor Centre, within which we will visit the interpretation room about fauna, flora and zoology of the place; and the exhibition on the human occupation of the Park (among them the Yamanas, Fuegian Pioneers and sawmills).
Before continuing our adventure, we take time to relax, drink a hot chocolate or coffee and some sweets, surrounded by wonderful views. After the break, we are ready to continue connecting trails until we reach the end of National Route #3 in Lapataia Bay. Then we will stop at Ensenada Zaratiegui where we will find the most southern post office. After about 4 hours we will finish our adventure with the feeling of having been part of the history and the nature of our island.
Everything depends on the point of view, or the place where we put ourselves to enjoy not only the activity, but also the landscapes, sounds, moments we experience when we do it.
Therefore, we invite you to discover Escondido Lake from another perspective. Taking advantage of its excellent conditions for nautical sports and the long hours of light of the austral summer, we will enjoy the canoeing and go back to the means of transport of the ancestors of our island to discover the local customs and all its mysticism while we have fun and enjoy the rowing. Once we get out of the lake, a typical lamb awaits us at the stake and a good wine, the inevitable companion of the adventure we live!
Day 3: 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. The guide will assist us wearing the crampons to transit the glacier.
In order to recharge energy, we stop for lunch: a warm gourmet menu. Then we take photos and start the journey back.
