Description

Tierra del Fuego is a land of incredible wilderness. This 1-day glacier trek in Argentina takes you to discover the glacier history and geology in Tierra del Fuego, in a high mountain environment, walking on the iced surface of the Vinciguerra glacier.

Located at the southern tip of South America, this island boasts the most amazing landscapes and natural beauty. During this day, we will visit the unique Lenga forest, the timberline area, beaver dams and peat bog, and a  glacier!

We will explore caves, crevasses, and walk with grampons on the iced surface of the glacier. It will be an unforgettable experience! We pick up you at 9 am in your hotel in the city of Ushuaia, and after a short transfer we reach the beginning of the trail.

The excursion will take us about 7 hours of hiking. We wil come back through the same way. The tour includes a lunch box, so we will have some rest to eat something, surrounded by stunning nature.
