In our departures, we stroll along with the principal and most important trails in the National Park. Anybody willing to join us can do it, regardless of the age, since the paths we trek through are of low difficulty.

We will have lunch in the Park (box lunch Gourmet).
In the afternoon, we will head in the direction to the oldest ranch in Tierra del Fuego – Harberton Ranch, from where we will take a zodiac to the Martillo Island, right in the middle of the Beagle Channel. There we will find a colony of Magellanic and Gentoo penguins. These amazing animals gather every season (from November till March), sharing the area with other kinds of birds.
After a walk of around an hour on the Island, observing the penguins, we will return to the ranch and then go back to Ushuaia.
After breakfast, pick up from the lodge. Today we will so one of the most beautiful trekkings in Ushuaia (we’ll start trekking the Andes in the only plays where it lays from west to east!).
The trail starts in The Andorra Valley ar 150 m.a.s.l. We will walk through dreamy landscapes in the “Milk River Valley”. The name of this river is given by the color that water that melts from glaciers has. We will stop to enjoy the view and rest in “Laguna de Los Tempanos” translated as Ice Floes Lagoon.
After, we will border the lagoon to get closer to the Glacier which is at 800 m.a.s.l. It is not possible to ice trek in it because of the great number of cracks it has, but we will be able to walk inside some of them and the caves that are formed.
After enjoying this amazing experience we will go back to the parking lot and head to the hotel.
This excursion is only available between October and April and takes from the hotel between 7 to 9 hours (6 or 8 are from trekking)
Breakfast at the hotel and transfer to the airport, to board the flight to El Calafate.
Arrival at the airport El Calafate and transfer to El Chaltén.

El Chalten is an ideal place to practice trekking, especially as we approach Fitz Roy (Chalten), Cerro Torre, the glaciers Torre and the lagoons Capri, Torre and De Los Tres among many other, incredibly beautiful places.
After breakfast we start the adventure, carrying only the necessary things for our 1 nights/2 days the first experience in some of the most amazing trails of Patagonia. We will be following part of the Fitz Roy Trek, gaining height over the River de las Vueltas valley up to the first viewpoints over Fitz Roy massif. We will continue walking across bogs and forests (a gentle walk) until reaching our Full Camp in the Poinconenot area. In the area, there are beautiful views of the Fitz Roy group spires rising from the surrounding glaciers. Carrying only the very basic stuff (leaving the rest at the camp) we’ll continue our Fitz Roy Trek towards Rio Blanco, where a steep 1-hour trail leads us to one of the most spectaculars viewpoints of the National Park: Laguna de Los Tres. Its zephyr blue color lies at the foot of the massif, offering full close up views of Fitz Roy massif spires and glaciers. The Fitz Roy Mount (3405 m.a.s.l.) is considered the “King of Patagonia”, and one of the three most beautiful mountains in the world.
The next day we’ll pack our gear and walk south along Lagoons Madre and Hija until reaching the Cerro Torre trail. On the way we’ll go through beech forests, bogs and shrublands; and we’ll finally get to Laguna Torre, enclosed by moraines and with Glacier Grande calving in its west side. Usually, we can see icebergs pushed by the wind on the coast of the lagoon. The main highlight in the area is the Cerro Torre, a thin and elegant needle of 3128 m.a.s.l. The Adela range in the background completes this spectacular view. In the afternoon, we head back to El Chalten, hiking along the Cerro Torre trail.

One of the most interesting activities to experience at the glacier is the tour that begins at Bajo de las Sombras pier, located approximately 4 miles away from the glacier. You will cross the Rico Branch on a boat (Nautical Safari), and navigate about 20 minutes in front of the glacier.
The landing is on the opposite shore and after a short walk, you will arrive at the shelter where you will receive a complete explanation about glaciation and the activity of the ice trek. After this, you will start a walk through the exuberant Magellanic forest.
This Minitrekking is particularly attractive because of the close contact you will experience with the glacier. You will be able to see the glacier’s summit. Some caves allow you to reach the very base of the glacier, as well as small internal deep blue lagoons. The views of the glacier’s wall and the lake are magnificent.
You will be able to walk on top of the glacier with our expert guides for over 2 hours.
The way back is a walk through the forest again, ending at the shelter. You will have one hour for lunch. After the Minitrekking, you will get abord your ship and return to Bajo de las Sombras’ port and the glaciers footbridges.
We will walk along the tracks and will make stops to take photographs. From the viewpoints we will see ice blocks of different sizes continually detaching from the glacier and falling into the water, causing a tremendous sound and amazing waves, which makes this view an unforgettable sight.
