Description

This medium-high intensity hike reaches a lookout located over 850 metres above Ushuaia. This seven-hour-long program is for those who love heights. After gaining over 650 metres in altitude, at the summit of this mount a 360º panorama awaits us. The 7 kilometres of this hike will offer an unmatched view of mount Olivia and mount Cinco Hermanos, the Carbajal and Andorra valleys, the Beagle Channel, Murray Pass, Navarino and Hoste islands and an astounding view of Ushuaia.

During a 3 hour-long uphill hike through the forest, we will have an intimate encounter with this milenary ecosystem. As we climb we might hear the mount pulse under our feet and hear its breath whispering in the trees.

Once we reach the tree line, without the shelter of the forest, in the open we’ll see what the condors see. It is a steep and demanding hike, for which fitness is essential, but it pays-off with a moment between the clouds that exceeds imagination.
