Itinerary
Stop At:  
Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego
The walk begins with the passengers pick up from selected hotels around 8:00am. We will travel approximately 20 km by minibus to the Tierra Mayor valley, where many excursions are made. There we will find the Nunatak refuge. From the refuge we will begin the walk, 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.
Duration: 3 hours 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Laguna Esmeralda
We will continue walking until we reach the Emerald Lagoon, located at the heart of the Nature Reserve and Landscape Tierra del Fuego. The color of the water added to its geographical location, in the Cordillera Fueguina, invites us to stop and rest on its banks while appreciating the stunning scenery. Here the Lunch Box will be given, so we can enjoy our lunch. Finally, we will return to the Nunatak refuge, through a different path that the one we took at the beginning, to continue exploring the reservation. From the refuge, we will get into the minibus, which will take us to our hotels at about 2:00pm, ending the journey.

The scenary is amazing and our guide was so funny and nice. However it should be better described because the trail is really not suited for everyone. It is said to be easy but is not. There is difficult forest walk and most of all lots and lots of mud. The scenaries are worth the fatigue but people should be more aware

Our trek to see Emerald Lake started out on a cold gray day. Before long we experienced a snowstorm which transformed the whole tour into a winter wonderland it was absolutely amazing our guide was the best ever. He was very accommodating and very thoughtful.

Beautiful trekking moment. Approach to the lake is long, sometimes the walking may be made difficult depending on wet conditions on the ground, but with the special boots provided, everything is much enjoyable. Our guide was a great man, very eager to show us all aspects of the surrounding nature. Reaching the goal, Emerald Lagoon, is so rewarding. We appreciated the story about the Canadian beavers brought to Terra del Fuego!

It was a miserable day, cool, rainy and windy. Still, we managed to do the tour. We were supplied with tall rubber boots, essential for walking in the peat areas. It was interesting to see the impact beavers were having on the ecology. Our guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor. The beautiful emerald lagoon nestled between the mountains with glaciers was amazing. Nice tour.

Dear traveler, Thank you for sharing your experience with us Sometimes, to complete the places that are free, cheaper rates are offered at the destination. This involves a risk: by paying the regular rate the passenger is guaranteed a place on the tour; waiting until the last minute, most of the time, there are no places available. It's a similar operation to those performed by airlines. We are glad to know that you enjoyed the tour, which is so characteristic of our country. We hope to see you soon!

This was a great trek. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the natural environment and spoke very good English. The trek was a little more strenuous than I though, but we also had a very windy and snowy day. A great tour to really see nature and have more solitude than some of the other tours offered in the area. The pick-up was on schedule and boots provided were perfect for our trek through peat bogs, mud, rocks, etc. Really enjoyed this adventure!

Não conseguimos ver a Lagoa. A água estava congelada. Os guias Gabi e David foram bem legais e muito atenciosos.

Prezada Adelia Fiha, Lamentamos muito que as condições climáticas não tenham sido favoráveis naquele dia. Você fez a excursão em outubro portanto, Ushuaia ainda tem tempo de inverno. Estamos felizes em saber que os guias tornaram o dia muito mais agradável. Agradecemos muito por compartilhar sua experiência. Atenciosamente.
