Pass By: Ushuaia

The tour starts with the passengers pick up from our selected hotels around 8:00am.

Stop At: Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, Ushuaia, Province of Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia

We will travel by minibus about 20 km to the Tierra Mayor valley, where many excursions take place. There we will find the Nunatak refuge.
From the refuge we will start the trek, during which we will cross peat bogs, streams and ancient forests of Lengas and Coihues, typical vegetation of the region. If we're lucky, it is possible to see local wildlife such as foxes, condors and beavers.

We continue walking until we reach the Emerald Lagoon, located in the heart of the Nature Reserve and Landscape Tierra del Fuego. The color of its waters added to its geographical location, in the middle of the Fuegian Cordillera, invites us to stop to rest on its shores while appreciating the stunning scenery.

Well outfitted trekking company. Local guides are amazing, growing up in these parks they know every step of the terrain. This trek takes you across all terrains that the area has to offer and views up top are incredible.

The walk was pretty good. Up to Emerald lake is a nice walk through marshland and forest. After a small break at the lake it's all uphill over rocks and scree. Pretty steep. Once you get up the top it's quite beautiful! The climb back down is not the easiest stroll you'll ever do.
Note this is coming from a sort of fit 51yo male and somewhat less fit 55yo female.
