  • My experience I refer to the word "Happiness", because it is really the feeling that was born in each instance of the tour towards the Emerald lagoon, and indeed expressed it repeatedly with tones of gratitude towards the people who invited me. A combination of anxiety, luck, good friends and effort, were the factors that contributed to this memorable milestone. The word freedom is enhanced when you arrive and do against so much natural beauty and our. I feel that I am blessed for having known this time this beautiful place, which would lead to each person close to my affections so you have the opportunity to experience what touched me thank God. I recommend it!

  • I made the trek to Laguna with the Brazilian agency team in Ushuaia. The guide was very attentive and friendly, showed good info on the site. The path is well signposted and the walk is not very difficult. When you get to the pond, the setting is charming. Worth

  • VA up to the Valley of the wolves can be even taxi, about 30 min from the Centre. They let you on the starting point of the trail. A 2:00 track with enough mud and wet areas, but quiet. VA themselves tennis jacket. The visual of the pond is amazing! Worth much the ride If you spend a few 6:00 to do it but is very worthwhile.
