This was quite an incredible place to find at the end of a long walk in the forest and mountains. The views were pretty outstanding! Transportation from the town centre was good although had to be arranged before hand.

We rent a bike in the city, went cycling for about 20km, left the bikes and hiked for 2 hours to reach the lake. I would recommend, the view at the end is beautiful.

As a couple in our 50's we found the terrain almost impossible even though we had proper walking boots and hiking poles. We caught the bus from town for ARS 300 each for the return trip taking about half an hour. The terrain is mixed...More

This hike is so beautiful and very fun! We had a rental car so we drove to the start of the hike and were there early. We did it all on our own. A guide is definitely not needed. The trail is very well marked....More

Of course you can. You can borrow a car or take a bus to the point from where you start hiking. Ask in Ushuaia tourist centre.
