Vinciguerra Glacier


From November to April, this full day hike stars in a valley with peat bogs, and through the woods to reach a glacier and a glacial lagoon.

The hike showcases the variety of beautiful views of the nature of Ushuaia.

In the morning, we leave from the hotel to the Valley of Andorra, the place where many locals settled and formed one of the characteristic, spontaneous urbanizations in Ushuaia

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!

Once in the forest, the ascent is constant, and while it is intense at the beginning, it is less demanding near the treeline, at some 600 meters above sea level. Once above the treeline, the views of the surrounding mountain range's craggy peaks that enclose the valley where the hike started are astonishing.
