Trekking in the Valley with snow shoes
Price: From $60 USD
Time: Half day
Included: Snack and hot drinks, crampons / snowshoes.
This half-day tour is an invitation to enjoy Winter in the Tierra del Fuego Glacial Valleys, forests and snow-covered mountains in direct and pleasant contact with Nature. It has been designed for visitors not used to activities in slow temperature places. We intend to let you discover and admire beauty in a panoramic and quiet place, very close to Ushuaia and far from big tourist groups.
The tour starts with a short 20 Km drive to the Natural Reserve in Tierra Mayor valley, alongside the Alvear Mount, where Winter snow creates alluring sights. This hike of moderate duration and difficulty will allow you to get in close contact with an absolutely unbelievable landscape in a short period of time enjoying the sights and the deep silence of the place.
You will walk across an old woodcutters path with snow poles to reach the valley, from where you will be able to spot the Alvear Mount. Trek continues Eastbound, bordering the forest to reach a viewpoint where the panoramic landscape can be observed: Lenga forest, river and the magic sight of Tierra Mayor covered by a white snow and ice mantle. A dome tent with a good fire will be there, with hot beverages and snacks. From that spot you will have a superb view of the Alvear Mount, the Beban Pass and the Bonete and Cara Blanca Hills. We will get to the first refuge through a different path, with incredible views of the West and North sectors of the frozen Valley.
