Snowshoeing between the sea and the mountains


The Martial glacier, an icon of Ushuaia, and panoramic viewpoint, offers a challenge to enjoy in the snow.

From 9:30 AM or from 2:30 PM, we will leave from your hotel to visit a place where the waters of the Beagle Channel can be seen from the height of the Martial Glacier.

With the proper equipment and specialized guides, safety is guaranteed so that entire families and anyone without experience in mountaineering can enjoy the spectacular views of the bay of Ushuaia.

This half-day excursion allows you to conquer the heights and the first-hand experience of one of the most magical and emblematic places in the city.

During the ascent with snowshoes, each step will take us to discover more and more extraordinary panoramas. Over the glacier's height valley you will enjoy a hot drink while the guide explains about the glacial processes that shaped the current landscape.

At the moment of descending, we will enter the forest to reach a zip line and enjoy nature sliding with all the appropriate security measures.

The tour will end with a short walk until you reach the Martial base to catch your ride back to your hotel.
