Description

Would you like to discover an amazing spot way down south in Argentina? Then I invite you to take part in a fantastic snowshoeing adventure in Ushuaia. Follow me to the southernmost area in the country and revel at the unique nocturnal sights of the Andes Fueguinos.

Moonlight trekking is in itself beautiful. To do it at the base of a glacier with a full moon above you is just outstanding. On this program, we’ll begin our magical walk at 7 pm and enjoy 4 hours in the middle of nature. With the Martial Glacier and the Patagonian forest around us, we’ll contemplate the Milky Way as we listen to the trickling melody of a nearby stream.

We can go on this trek on the days before, during and after the full moon. We’ll get to see  Ushuaia in the middle of the night. As we move forward on our trek, we’ll be able to explore the area without the help of a flashlight!

This program doesn’t require prior trekking experience or knowledge. However, it will be helpful to have a good level of fitness.

So, would you like to join this trip? Then get in touch with me by sending your request. I can assure you it will be an unforgettable experience.

Keep exploring Tierra del Fuego on this 3-day trekking program that I also lead.

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
