Description

Spend 7 days in the best southerner spots to ski that Tierra del Fuego has for you. The stunning tree lines, landscapes, mountains and woods make Tierra del Fuego's surroundings a unique place for backcountry skiing.

As you may know, Tierra del Fuego is the southernmost province in Argentina and is therefore called "the end of the world". Its large slopes offer us backcountry itineraries for all levels of skiers.

Some of the best places where we will go during this 7-day expedition are:

  • The Olum valley,

  • Mount Alvear,

  • Martial glacier

  • Cerro Bonete

You can find the complete day-by-day itinerary at the end of this page. It is also a perfect trip for expert skiers in search of exploring the Fuegian Mountains with boards. Anyway, all my tours are adequate to each guest. I can plan an adventure according to your fitness level and expectations.

Finally, let me tell you that if you don't have too much time in Tierra del Fuego I can offer this one-day ski tour. That way you will at least visit the main skiing spots of the area.

So, are you coming to Tierra del Fuego next winter? Get in touch with me as soon as possible. Let's plan your perfect adventure in this backcountry skiing paradise!

Mountain 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

Sebastian was a great guide! We felt very safe and it was really fun getting to know him. We liked him so much we decided we would do a second trip while we are in town. If I ever come back to Ushuaia, I will definitely track him down for more trips

Marine was a really wonderful guide and she made the 3 day trek around Tierra del Fuego a great pleasure for us. She is very knowledgable and a very professional guide. Marine also helped us with renting clothes that we needed and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we would need. I would definitely recommend this trek as well as Marine and Seba. Booking and paying through explore-share was also very easy and efficient. Thank you to all!

My friend and I went for a day backcountry skiing to Martial Galcier. We had a brilliant time, the guide was a champion!

Facundo was amazing! I have some climbing experience and my partner had never climbed before. Similarly, my partner speaks Spanish but I only speak English. Facundo not only guided us expertly through several routes but also taught us a lot about Ushuaia. The experience does involve a 20-30 minute hike to the climbing location so be prepared for a trek. But it was a fantastic experience and highly recommend being able to say you climbed in Patagonia :)
