  • One of those things worth doing in life. I did the winter trekking with every frozen path, which was a show apart. Amazing landscapes and unique moments. Even with the frozen lagoon the spectacle of nature is impressive. I recommend and hope to return to see the Laguna soon, this time, in summer.

  • One of the easiest trek in Ushuaia area. Therefore there are so many people on weekends. It's still beautiful and nice to go there but if you prefer less people then you'd better go there on weekdays. And get prepared for wet feet.
  • Went in May (winter). It was amazing. Now that I’ve done Torres del Paine W, I still thought Esmeralda was a cool experience. Definitely a lot easier on the trails, haha. Glad I did not skip this in favor of TdF National Park.
