Will enjoy one of the most demanding adventure in the End of the World. Will be in touch with the Vinciguerra Glacier and its Caves.

The tour begins in the morning with the transfer from the hotel to the Valley of Andorra, the place where many locals settled and formed one of the characteristic spontaneous urbanizations in Ushuaia. After leaving the vehicle, the walk goes along a meltwater, meandering river that goes through the peat bog that lines this valley. This wet and slippery
ground will be found along much of the walk; so remember to pack the appropriate footwear!

The ascent continues along a stream that feeds from a glacial lagoon where, a few decades ago, the Vinciguerra glacier used to have its terminus, and where it used to calve icebergs. Although nowadays the glacier retreated a few dozens of meters from the lagoon, it is now attractive for its caves and the magical gravitation it still has in this area of breathtaking views.
