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.

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
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!
Sebastian was a great guide! We felt very safe and it was really fun getting to know him. We liked him so much we decided we would do a second trip while we are in town. If I ever come back to Ushuaia, I will definitely track him down for more trips
Wonderful day. Guide sensitive to the weather conditions and our experience in leading a wonderful walk through superb landscape.
Amazing tour with Guias del Sur! Jeremias was an outstanding guide we strongly recommend for your tour who knows all about the landscape, its plants and animals and a lot of inside stories and all climbing routes and trekking tours in the area!
Sebastian was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and thoughtful in his safety decisions. He is also just a great guy to ski with - we had a blast with him!
The trip was great! Sebastian's colleague Ignacio catered it exactly as I have envisioned the trip to be according to my skills and background experience. He was patient and helpful when I struggled in certain moments and he taught me a lot of important safety details on various aspects of the activity, which was what I expected. Overall, a fantastic three days and will definitely return if I have time next year!
Everything about the experience was perfect - Sebastian was an amazing guide, the trek was incredible and every detail from the food to the equipment could not have been better. Absolutely unforgettable experience.
