Day hike to the summit of Cerro del Medio in Ushuaia

Day hike to the summit of Cerro del Medio in Ushuaia

Join Lilen, a Zeta trek guide, for an incredible hiking day to the summit or scenic lookout of the stunning Cerro del Medio in Ushuaia, Argentina.



1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


All Levels


  • Hike one of Ushuaia’s most classic routes.
  • Discover the stunning views at the end of the road.
  • Hop on an adventure planned just for you.


Follow me on a wonderful hike in Ushuaia, the southernmost city of Argentina. During one day, we’ll follow a hiking path that will lead us to the scenic lookout spot and summit of the stunning Cerro del Medio.

The hike to Cerro del Medio is one of the most in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego. It is also relatively simple, with impressive views of the whole city. The biggest challenge is the constant change in weather, so make sure to bring warm layers of clothing.

For this adventure, we’ll depart from the intersection of Las Prímulas street and Isla de los Pájaros, which can be accessed by taxi or the B bus. Let me know if you need further instructions to reach the meeting point. The hike will take us around 4 hours and a half and you can choose whether to hike all the way to the summit or to the scenic lookout spot a bit earlier on the way.

Ready for a fun hike in Ushuaia? Then send your message and spend a wonderful day surrounded by mountains, lakes and nature. You’ll fall in love with this beautiful spot in the south of Argentina!

About the guide

Mountaineering is part of my life since I was a child. I'm from Ushuaia and now I'm leaving in El Chalten, two of the most beautiful places in Patagonia for hiking, skiing, climbing and feeling the strong and pristine Patagonian nature.

I started guiding in 2014 and it has turned a way of leaving. I have worked in many areas of the Andes Range, from the low and sharp mountains in Ushuaia until the high mountain in the Real Range (Bolivia), and many trekking and mountains in North Patagonia Area (Bariloche) and Central Andes (Mendoza). Now in El Chalten I guide many beautiful trekking in the area. I guide the treks in Los Glaciares National Park under license of Zeta Trek.

I'm also an experimented climber and a certificated climbing monitor FASA (Argentinian Federation of Skiing and Andinism).
And I'm studying Waldorf Pedagogy oriented to physical activity.

Please get in touch with me if you wish to be guided in South Patagonia this summer! or to organize a beautiful adventure in the Andes whenever you feel it's the moment to experiment something new.

What people are saying about Lilen Sosa

Patrick Loecker


March, 2022

Lilen was a fantastic guide for our group. She educated us during our trek on the native plants, wildlife, surrounding geology and mountain topography. Shared amazing stories of people she has met, additional day hiking options in the area, and attempted to help improve our Spanish vocabulary. She did this all while making sure the actual trek was safe, enjoyable and not too strenuous. At times it felt just like we were hiking with a friend that we had total trust in rather than a stranger leading us through a majestic 4 day trek through the Andes. In all we had a blast and loved the entire experience. Thanks Lilen.
