Full description

Get picked up from your hotel and transferred to the starting point of the walk, about 20 minutes from the city of Ushuaia. Before starting the activity, you will be provided with trekking poles, crampons if necessary, and a box lunch. The walk crosses forests and two different valleys following the Esmeralda River to its source. After five kilometers of walking and about 250 meters of unevenness, reach the Laguna Esmeralda where you'll take a break for lunch and a cup of tea or coffee. The return is made by the same path to the base of the road where a minibus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel. All the activity is carried out with the assistance of a professional guide

Fantastic trip! Must be experienced if you are in Ushuaia. Easy walk of 4-5 km up to the lagoon where you have a fantastic view of the mountains and the lagoon itself. A large lunch package is given out at a shared lunch by the water. The guide Violeta is very nice and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

Everything well organised and Eugenia looked after us very well. Good communication re pick up and bus left and returned at times promised. We were only English speakers on tour but we got a very fair allocation of commentary in English. Would recommend this tour but worry that route might be very busy in high season.
