  • Worth every step and the difficulty to get to the Lake. The landscape is the most beautiful I've ever met in Ushuaia. It is important to use a guide and does not start the trekking after the 13 hours, because returning the night and it is possible to get lost in the Woods. Do during the day some 5 hours. need to enjoy with pleasure the location. Worth

  • Fantastic way ... beautiful nature and different ... a lot of peace and tranquility ... until you reach the lagoon, which is inexplicably beautiful! Worth much the ride!

  • Hike magic from the beginning to the end, are two hours of trip to reach the lagoon, does not present major difficulties podes muddy you slightly on peatlands, but will be worth it. It is not necessary to do so with guides, you can go by taxi or remis vans that come out of the Center (the first sale at 9) take you and you go to look for a preacordada time. They charge you $300. To enjoy to the fullest!
