Description

If you are coming to Tierra del Fuego, Ojo del Albino Glacier and Laguna Esmeralda are must-see places! Don’t miss the chance of visiting these beautiful spots in the southernmost province in Argentina.

Our adventure will start at 8.30 am in Ushuaia, the capital city of Tierra del Fuego. We’ll go through the Andean Patagonian Forest towards the Laguna Esmeralda.

This beautiful lake is located in the middle of a valley and surrounded by two mounts: Cerro Bonete (1,120 m) and Cerro Pelado (930 m). That is why you won’t be able to see the lagoon until the very end. As Laguna Esmeralda is hidden in the mountains, it is a beautiful surprise that you’ll admire once you reach a certain altitude to contemplate it from above.

Afterwards, we’ll follow the Esmeralda River and reach the Ojo del Albino Glacier. With around 1000 meters of altitude, Ojo del Albino belongs to the Sierra Alvear and it is a very popular place in Tierra del Fuego. When we get to the base of the glacier, we’ll put our crampons on to walk through it. Then, we’ll have the pleasure to have lunch while contemplating the incredible mountains of the area, Laguna Esmeralda included!

Please, keep in mind that this hike can be challenging and has a duration of 10 hours. Therefore, to have a good physical condition is a requirement. It is also important to bring comfortable clothing and trekking boots.

This hike to Ojo del Albino Glacier is a wonderful way to spend a different day. Send your request now and come to explore this beautiful area at the end of the world.

You can also take a look at my half-day trek in Martial Glacier, Tierra del Fuego.

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.
