It consists of a 3-day tour where you can discover valleys, peat bogs, beaver marshes, mountains, lagoons and incredible views. The modality under which it is carried out is base camp (you sleep both nights in the same place to allow the tours, after setting up the camp, to be the most comfortable since they are done without extra weight). We provide numerous options regarding the duration of the journeys and the different levels of difficulty, so that they adapt to the requirements of each person.
The adventure begins near the city of Ushuaia where we will enter the Chico River Valley to ascend little by little, crossing mountain streams, the friends waterfall, peat bogs and beaver marshes. During this first stage we will walk approximately 4 hours (6.6km and 300 m positive elevation gain) until we reach the camping site. After leaving everything ready, you will choose to go to the Carbajal Valley viewpoint (consisting of a trekking of 2 hours – 2.38km – 244 m of positive slope) or to Punta Chloe (consisting of a trekking of 2 hours – 1.33 km – and 267 m of positive slope). Then, in the afternoon, we will return to the camp to have a snack and enjoy nature until the mountain dinner arrives.
At the beginning of the second day, after a good breakfast, we will leave for the base of the Torres del Río Chico, which will take approximately 2 hours of walking. We will ascend to the northern ridge where we will cross the Valley of the Lagoons. Laguna Matamico, Laguna Chimango and Laguna Halcón offer a variety of colors that surprise all walkers. We will return to the camp for dinner. The approximate total walk for the day is 6 hours – 6.6km – and 484 m of positive elevation gain.
Day back to Ushuaia.
We are going to dismantle the camp to return again along a mountain road, arriving at the meeting point where the transfer will pick us up at approximately 4:00 p.m. to head to the city of Ushuaia again.
