Description

Are you planning to visit Ushuaia? Then Ojo del Albino Glacier and Laguna Esmeralda need to be on your itinerary. Follow me for a day-hike and let me show you these stunning places.

We’ll meet in Ushuaia and begin our hike through the Andean Patagonian Forest. On our way to the impressive turquoise lagoon, we’ll enjoy views of Cerro Bonete (1,120 m) and Cerro Pelado (930 m). Once we reach Laguna Esmeralda you’ll understand what all the talk is about: the water is of a breathtaking color and it reflects all its surrounding beauty.

We’ll then follow the Esmeralda River to reach the Ojo del Albino Glacier. With an altitude that varies between 900 and 1,300 meters above sea level, this popular place in Tierra del Fuego belongs to the Sierra Alvear. Once we reach this glacier, we’ll put on our crampons and walk through it! We’ll then get to enjoy an unforgettable picnic with views of the outstanding glacier and lagoon.

This 10-hour hike is a challenging and demanding hike. That is why I recommend participants to be in a good physical shape. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you.

Send your message and let me organize this perfect trip just for you. I can guarantee you’ll love this hike!

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.
