Join me in this amazing 3-day trek in Ushuaia, in the Andes southernmost point! Come to the capital of Tierra del Fuego province in Argentina, and live an unforgettable experience.

We will start our trek in Ushuaia going into the Andes range through the Alvear range area. Then, we will walk until we reach the spectacular Ojo del Albino Glacier. Besides, we will enjoy the stunning view of mountains and ice. That first night we will sleep in a tent.

Next morning, be ready to put your crampons on and cross over the glacier! Then, I will guide you down to the beautiful Laguna Esmeralda. The scenery around the lagoon is really stunning, with the view of mountains and glaciers. You will really feel the energy and beauty of the Andes!

Also, between December and March, the waters of the lagoon turn into an amazing emerald green color. This is due to the sediments of the melting glaciers. So, after leaving the lagoon we will walk to the mountain refuge, where we will have a delicious meal!

Then, next morning we will walk south and ascend the valley of Ollum. We will cross between Mount Olivia and Mount Five Brothers. Later, we will descend towards the Estancia Túnel, a ranch located in the margin of the Beagle Channel.

So contact me if you are ready for this amazing trek in Ushuaia! I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. And if you don’t have enough time, you could check my 1-day trek to Mount Carabajal and Turquesa Lagoon.

About the Guide

 
 

Mountain Guide, GEM-AAGM Ski Guide, UIMLA, AIARE level 2 from Argentina.

I was born and live in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! I've been skiing since I was 2 years old, and competed as a ski athlete in a Nordic ski and Biathlon world ski championships, world cups and in the winter Olimpic Games Torino 2006

In 2007 I retired from professional competitions to focus on my guiding career. I trained on rock, ice and mixed climbing skills as well as guiding techniques and became a mountain guide in 2011 at the Argentinean Mountaineering Guides Association (AAGM). In 2017 I completed the guiding courses to become also a certified Ski Mountain Guide GEM-AAGM.

I've done a large number of technical climbs at the Darwin Range and Patagonia while many of those are new lines
