Full description
Be collected at your accommodation in a minivan and start your adventure with up to 18 other people. Spend 1-hour on a scenic drive through Lengas and Cohiues, the ancient trees of Fueguian forests, then reach the welcoming refuge.  Once inside Tierra del Fuego National Park begin your 2.5-hour trek to the Emerald Lagoon. This is a moderately difficult trek over 7 miles with 700 feet of uneven terrain, which leads you across streams and through dense forests until reaching the lagoon. This beautiful spot is hidden between immense snow-capped mountains. It is an excellent place for spotting foxes, condors, and beavers. Marvel at the turquoise water while you take a 45-minute break to enjoy a delicious packed lunch. After lunch, enjoy the 1.5-hour trek to return to the refuge where you will be picked up and driven back to Ushuaia.

    It's a long trek ( if you are not a trekker) and requires waterproof boots, most of the trek is on damp and Marsh soli. The alternative you are offered of cheap rubber boots is not very good. The ones my wife used were ruptured and they don't give you a good support. You will need trekking poles, but they are provided by the operator. Other than these operating issues it was very nice trek with very beautiful scenary.

    The trek to Laguna will remain a highlight of our stay in Ushuaia. We were picked up on time, then when we arrived at the starting point, boots and trekking poles were given to us as well as a delicious picnic. After a few safety instructions, we started our trek to La Laguna Esmeralda supervised by our two super guides: David and Thomas who were not stingy with explanations of the flora and fauna along the way. Then finally the arrival at the lake, true beauty of nature, flanked between rocky bars like a jewel in its case! A great moment of emotion that we will remember for a long time.

    Phenomenal hike! Definitely bring your own waterproof boots if you can, and get ready for a workout. The payoff is worth it! Beautiful glacial lake, and Daniel was a very knowledgeable guide.
