Emerald Lagoon Trekking from Ushuaia
We recommend this tour for nature lovers, as it takes you to the heart of the Nature Reserve and Landscape Tierra del Fuego, where the Emerald Lagoon is located. Emerald Lagoon Trekking from Ushuaia is a 4 hours trek through landscapes of great beauty, being able to observe the local flora and, if we're lucky, foxes, condors and beavers.
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.
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.
