Description

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.

In 2007 I retired from professional competitions to focus on my guiding career.

Marine was a really wonderful guide and she made the 3 day trek around Tierra del Fuego a great pleasure for us. She is very knowledgable and a very professional guide. Marine also helped us with renting clothes that we needed and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we would need. I would definitely recommend this trek as well as Marine and Seba. Booking and paying through explore-share was also very easy and efficient. Thank you to all!
