Description

This is a trekking excursion of three days in Tierra del Fuego, in which we will go from the mountains to the sea. We start from Andes Mountain Range in the area of the Alvear Range to Ojo del Albino Glacier. There we cross with crampons and descend to Esmeralda Lagoon. Then we take south direction and go between Olivia and 5 Hermanos Mountains to address towards Estancia Túnel which is placed on the edge of Beagle Channel. The first night is in a tent and the second in a mountain shelter.

Itinerary:

Day 1:

The beginning of the path is located on the National Rout N3, just a few miles north away from Ushuaia. From there we will cross Carabajal Valley, softly climb along Beban Valley to reach the camp of the first day at the bottom of Agujas del Rino; in the Alvear range (Andes Mountain Range). The first day is characterized by the Andean-Patagonic forest of Lengas, Ñires and Coihues; and by the typical peat moss ground (sphagnum) which covers the large Fuegian valleys that makes a waterproof pair of shoes an essential requirement to face this adventure.

Day 2:

The second day starts going out from the forest to face a soft climbing on a firm ground of rocks which have been eroded by the glaciers. We will reach Ojo del Albino Lagoon, its waters come from the homonym Glacier. Right there and after having lunch we will put on the crampons and walkon the glacier looking for the way down to Esmeralda Lagoon. Then we will take south direction and go through Lasifashaj Valley. In the afternoon we will arrive to a mountain shelter in the beginning of the Olum Valley where we will be able to enjoy the warm heater and have the Argentinean classic Guiso de Lentejas (Lentils Stew) and a red wine before going to bed.

Day 3:

During the third and last day we will continue south direction climbing Olum Valley until the Col between Olivia and 5 Hermanos Mountains from where we will see our objectives: the Beagle Channel and Ushuaia Bay. There on, we will descend to the historic Estancia Túnel which is placed on the edge of the Beagle Channel. Depending on the weather and the group we will try to reach the same day the summit of Cerro Le Cloche.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
