  • Place simply sensational! We bought the ride through the Brazilian Agency in Ushuaia. The experience was great. Special mention to the Guide, Mario. Very nice people, smart and interested in explaining each track point. In addition, there was a lady among the participants and he made sure to go by her side all the time (even though she was with the adult son). Congratulations!

  • 9 km walk back and forth without much difficulty. Better wear your old slippers, because there is enough mud in turbaras them. A sunny day we went and spent a wonderful day. The landscape constantly changes between forests, creeks, bogs and finally the lagoon. It is a magical place. The back is faster because you already get used to the road.

  • Their colors change depends on the reflection of the Sun, beautiful and unforgettable place to explore and enjoy since the trail begins. They are approximately 4 h round-trip, missing signage, swamp much more if it has rained, a place that mixes beautiful scenarios. The trail is more tranquil q of the martial glacier which is steepest.

  • Beautiful! Walking takes about 2-3 hours the ida, and return other hours in a segment of 12 km total. Looks a lot but done well, is way of ascent there are valleys there are downs, hiring the excursion to us they gave us (much-needed) rain boots is peat, something like how boggy mud and water, very deep at times. Clothes coming back muddy. It is worth! The place is beautiful!

  • The landscape is wonderful... But you have to be prepared to muddy up to the knees. Little maintenance in the path.

  • The place is filling his eyes. We took a different trail (that which comes out of the parking lot on Route 3). We're too! But it was a lesson.
