#7 of 15 in Nature in Ushuaia
Breathe in the fresh air, soak in the scenery, and relax in untouched nature at Lago Roca, close to the southernmost tip of South America. Located inside of Tierra del Fuego National Park, this 11 km (6.8 mile) long glacial lake is surrounded by mountain peaks. The eastern part of the lake belongs to Argentina, while the western lies in Chile. Kayak along the water, or hike the surrounding area and enjoy the wildlife. You can visit the lake on a one-day tour, but those who decide to extend their stay will find some of the park's best camping spots along the lake's shores.

    The day was beautiful and very cold, stay on the fringes makes it colder still, and with the beautiful nature makes the magnificent photos.

    As he told us the Guide ceased to be the Rock Lake to be the Lake Acigami. The name change did not change the beauty. Ideal for the mate of the afternoon admiring the landscape

    the pond is beautiful worth walk 4 km tracks and snow, mud, slippery ice, and climb around 200 meters uphill to see and know the pond, we get it, of course winter she was frozen with 80 cm of ice, but the experience is fantastic, on the way to roll in the snow.

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.
