In the morning, we will leave from the hotel to take the famous route 3 that runs through part of the Cordillera Fueguina, which allows us to access to the Paso Garibaldi. From here, we will see Escondido and Fagnano Lake. We will start the descent, leaving the conventional route to follow the old tracks of the woodcutters. The 4x4 trucks will help us with this expedition, reaching places where access would be impossible otherwise. We will cross forests, following paths of mud, stones, and overcoming different challenges in our way. Finally, we will arrive at Fagnano Lake, which will surprise us with its size and the incredible landscape that surrounds it.
We will make a stop at that lake where we will enjoy a delicious local asado. While the guides prepare lunch, we can make a walk around the area to explore the forest and the beavers that are part of the local landscape nowadays. After lunch, we will continue with this adventure but this time using a route to get to Escondido Lake. This lake is smaller than the other but it will still surprise us with its unique natural environment.
If we choose this tour during the summer, we can go canoeing on the Escondido Lake. First we will have an introductory talk with our guides, prepare the canoes and finally paddle around the lake. We will enjoy the area landscape in a different way. After canoeing for 45 minutes, we will return to the point where the vans were left to return to Ushuaia along National Route 3.
But if you choose it during the winter, we will have lunch in a winter shelter and while it is being prepared, we can walk around or have fun on the sledding track. After lunch, we will visit the Tierra Mayor Winter Center, where we will have time to explore the area and make extra activities such as snowmobiles, husky sleds, skiing or ice-skating. Also, if you wish, you can stay in the warm hosteria contemplating the incredible Nevado Valley. After having fun at the winter center, we will return to our vehicles to get back to Ushuaia.
