EXCURSION TIERRA DEL FUEGO NATIONAL PARK

Distance: 50 km. total

Duration: 4 hours.

12 km. To the west of Ushuaia is the entrance to the Tierra del Fuego National Park, the only one with coastline in our country. It occupies an area of ​​63000 hectares where lengas, guindos, ñires, calafates, notros, flowers like orchids, violets and senecios coexist. A walk through this National Park, besides offering multiple panoramic views over the Beagle Channel framed by mountains and forest, brings us closer to nature. The opportunity to breathe the sea air along with the perfume of the forest is a privilege of few. We will follow the route along the road that is tracing a very thin strip in the slope of the mountain; We will pass between turbans, dams of beavers and we will arrive to the Lapataia River. When crossing it the route becomes meandering and sprinkled with bushy vegetation, with panoramic views, as for example, on the Green Lagoon. The kaikenes and bandurrias arrive here every summer. If you want to feel the protagonist of a story, we recommend the walk along the Trail that leads to the Laguna Negra or the Sendero Los Castores, to interpret the work of these curious animals. Then the final section begins to Lapataia (end of National Route No. 3), where the ancient inhabitants of the area have left their testimony: the concheros, incredible archaeological sites. Before heading back to Ushuaia, a stop is made in front of Lake Roca, whose color varies according to the weather, with the possibility of savoring a chocolate in the confectionery.

The glacier, named after the great Argentine explorer of the last century, is one of the few in the world in progress. This has made it one of the biggest natural shows in South America. From time to time, its front of 60 m of height gives off large ice walls like buildings that fall to the waters of the Rich Arm or the Channel of the Icebergs, soon to leave navigating by the Channel towards the main body of the lake. But that is not all. The glacier, when advancing, approaches the Magellan Peninsula, on the opposite bank of the lake and point of the sector of footbridges and viewpoints. The cycle takes 4 to 6 years and ends up dividing the lake in two. The Arm Rico is embalmed and rises above its level in approximately 35 m.
