Description

Tierra del Fuego is one of the most sublime places on Earth. Located at the south tip of South America, it is a true paradise. And this 3-day hiking tour around Torres del Rio Chico is the best way to explore one of Tierra del Fuego‘s most incredible spots.

You can check how the trip looks like in this amazing video.

Our 3-day hike begins at the base of Cerro Cortez. Then we walk along the Rio Chico river until it seems that the vegetation has ended. We also have the option to climb to one of the valley lagoons. 

The day after we will start our tour around the Lagunas de las Aves, or Birds Lagoons in English.  The tour includes magnificent lagoons such as the Halcon, Chimango, Albatros, Cóndor and Caracho. Then, we’ll start ascending to the Paso de las Aves, also known as the Birds Pass in English. We’ll descend from the Manutara valley straight to the Manutara lagoon.

On our last day we’ll have an exquisite breakfast by the Manutara Lagoon. And, if the weather permits, we’ll cross the Vincigerra Sierra, where you’ll have a stunning view of Mount Vincigerra, the Beagle Canal and the Darwin’s mountain range. Finally, I’ll take you to the Andorra Valley so you get the chance to see the Vincigerra Glacier.

However, if the weather shifts, we also have another option. We can ascend through the valley towards the East, along the Rio Chico river. We will descend by the Rio Chico until we arrive to a route that will take us back to Ushuaia.

So, if you ever wanted to explore Tierra del Fuego, this hiking tour on Torres del Rio Chico is for you. Send me a message, and I’ll make sure your days in this wonderful land are unforgettable.

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
