  • We did all the routes while staying ar the Arakur. Especially the yellow is simple, the red has a bit of a climb. Very clear trail, for me a longer route would have been even nicer.  more »
  • I made the reservation to be hosted in the Arakur circuit. Beautiful travel and views. The hotel staff not informed of these options, I learned by chance. The circuit is not difficult physically and the views are wonderful.

  • I stayed in the hotel Arakur, attached to the reserve. Well-marked trails, puentesitos, stones to mark the way, natural ladder where there are former. At least in the hotel brochures, 3 different circuits, all low to medium difficulty are marked. After a common access from the base of the hotel, leaving trails. One of 400 meters. to the top of the Hill, another of 850 meters, which surrounds a peat bog and one of 2300 meters. by a native forest. At the same time, since this reserve is accessible to another tour of the Valley of the chico River, 5800 m., or to other hills. With my daughters of 3 to 5 years, walked with all snowy, the circuit of 850 meters, more than 400 meters to the top of the Hill. Very, very nice.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
