Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Tierra del Fuego / Ushuaia / Glacier Martial
A short trip from the city, Glacier Martial offers an array of hiking trails and walks of varying difficulties. Providing nearby Ushuaia with much of its fresh water, the glacier rises behind town and serves as a natural vantage point over the surrounding area. Head for the start of the main trail--the most common route for visitors--and hike your way up through the gorge to the top of the hill (do ensure that you have proper hiking gear before setting off). Alternatively, hop aboard the chairlift, which whizzes you to the top in just 15 minutes and eliminates the need for trekking experience. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the view of the gorge and ocean from the summit. Add Glacier Martial and other attractions to your Ushuaia trip itinerary using our Ushuaia road trip app .

L... more »It is located about 7 kilometers from the city center, we went by taxi. It is a little over 1000 meters high, being the most important source of drinking water in the area. The walk to the base of the aeroilla that at the time was not working, is quite steep, it took about an hour and a half, but it is worth the effort. During the climb you can have beautiful views of the Beagle Canal and Ushuaia. Upon arrival we found a lot of ice and beautiful scenery, we did not do the trails for lack of time and proper clothes. When you come down you have to enjoy a coffee with a delicious cake in the tea house La Cabaña which is located at the base.
