Description

Discover the magic of Patagonia on this 1-day trek to Cerro Portillo, in Ushuaia.

Ushuaia is the capital city of the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego. Located in the northeast of the city, Cerro Portillo offers great trekking options. This is where our program will take place.

We’ll meet in Ushuaia at 8 am to enjoy a full day of trekking. Take into account that the trekking ascent requires patience and determination. You can expect to find obstacles on your way. It is important to have a very good fitness condition so you can fully enjoy the adventure and its landscapes.

After going through the beautiful Patagonian forest we’ll finally reach the Cerro Portillo summit, from where we’ll be able to see the breathtaking landscapes of the famous ‘Andes Fueguinos’, the southernmost tip of the Andes mountain range.

La Mano and Olivia mounts, the Beagle Channel and the Ushuaia Bay will be other astonishing spots that we will admire from the top of Cerro Portillo. The duration of this trip is 8 hours. We’ll be returning at around 4 pm.

So if you want to be part of this trek in Ushuaia, all you have to do is send your request and book your trip now. It will be a pleasure to guide you there.

An easier but equally outstanding option could be this trek in Ojo del Albino, Ushuaia.

Since my Dad could not come due to illness I am hoping his tour price can be refunded. The tour was nice although the trail conditions were incredibly muddy and wet, which can’t be helped. But people should be warned about how wet and muddy it is. Gabriel and Félix were great and the views were spectacular! Thanks.

Due to events outside of our control, our trip has to be modified, Gabriel was very flexible and understanding. Together with the guide Manuel, we managed to create an amazing trip in this stunning environment. Both guides were thorough, friendly, knowledgeable about the trail, local floral and fauna and surrounding geography. An absolute must for anyone visiting ushuaia!

Gabriel was a terrific guide for Cinco Hermanos, which provides amazing views of Ushuaia and the surrounding mountain ridges and valleys. After a pleasant trail through the forest, you cross the main creek and ascend the benches below the peaks. After that we enjoyed terrific alpine climbing with steep snow, sometimes greater than 50 degrees. Route finding was a bit challenging, and the selection of the right gulley can greatly determine which hermano you are climbing. We ultimately summitted Hermano Cinco. Ghanks to Gabriel for sharing so much information about the mountains and culture of the region.

I came here at the end of Winter, so it was still snowing and the lake was unfortunately frozen with snow on top. However, the hike had amazing views with a very knowledgeable Guide. Pick up was on time and all information was given to me as needed. Highly recommend.
