Description

Join me for a hike surrounded by mountains and turquoise waters. Mount Carbajal – Turquesa Lagoon is one of my favorite trails! And I want to share it with you.

Besides such amazing views during the hike, this program includes a summit attempt to Mount Carbajal. Yes, all on the same day. Please find here then, a more complete itinerary of this 1-day trek.

ITINERARY

First of all, we start a 1-hour hike up to Turquesa Lagoon. Once there, we can enjoy the mountain landscape and the color of such a stunning lagoon. And here the ascent begins.

From the Gotama Edge, through unbelievable rock formations and the Turquesa Lagoon below us, we will finally reach the Mount Carbajal Summit.

The top of this mount provides us one of the most wonderful views of the Andes. As a reward of your effort, you’ll get a unique viewpoint from the end of the world with millennial glaciers and mountain lagoons. At this point, you can see how the glaciers chiseled their way to the Beagle Channel during the last ice age.

As you may notice in this description, this hiking trip requires a moderate fitness level. The trail is 8 km long and the ascent is of 600 meters. On the way you have to overcome rocky, muddy and snowy surfaces.

  • Departure time: 9 am

  • Return time: 4 pm

  • Walking time: 6 hours

Optional: the day can finish in Olum Valley in the company of a great sunset. Then, we can have a Patagonic snack in a forest hut. There is no place like the peaceful Lenga Forest. Enjoy a Fuegian environment and a cozy fire of a coal stove.

I will be proud to show you why this program is one of the Top Hikes to do here. As a local guide, I know the area perfectly. Please, contact me now and let’s plan together your next hike around Mount Carbajal.

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
