LAGUNA ESMERALDA TREKKING TOUR

Description
Laguna Esmeralda (Emerald Lagoon) is located at the Tierra Mayor Valley, at the base of the Ojo de Albino Glacier, between Mount Bonete and the Toribio Range. Its waters are emerald green, in marked contrast with the reddish hues of its surrounding peatbogs. Peatbogs are wetlands, so for a pleasant walk we can provide you with rubber boots, if necessary (upon prior request). While the journey doesn’t involve going up steep slopes, a minimum physical fitness is required.-

Departure from hotel by bus, we take the National Route Nº3 and drive northeast, towards Tierra Mayor Valley.
Once 20 km (12.5 miles) from Ushuaia, our walk begins along the forest, crossing rivers and peatbogs and, after a 4.5 km trek (2.8 miles), we get to the Esmeralda Lagoon (450 m a.s.l.); a point to behold the beauty and majestic of nature.
