  • The hike to the Lake Esmeralda is highly recommended since it is beautiful. After a voyage to mediate little rise, mud, water, peat, you arrive at the magnificent lagoon. Previous experience is not required, but if footwear since the road is uneven and much mud, and you can suffer some slip. For access to the trail you got that get to Valley of the wolves: you can go in remise, taxi or a combi or bus that you pass to search by the hotel (this option is great as is very economic).

  • Excellent trip, the guides duck and Daniel so attentive to all. They were in the details of snack and dinner, with all courtesy in the walk. Was very funny! I fully recommend it.

  • Very nice hike - and who has never - seen a real Beaver Dam then let's go! Directions was overpriced like everything in Ushuaia! 300 pesos per person!
