Esmeralda Lagoon (Laguna Esmeralda) Tours and Activities

star-5
95 Reviews

The Esmeralda Lagoon hike is a popular afternoon and evening activity just outside of Ushuaia. Set in a wide valley in the Fuegian Andes, Esmeralda Lagoon is ringed by native cohiue and lenga forests.

The hike traverses several peat bogs, which cover much of Tierra Del Fuego’s low-lying lands. After a 2-3 hour hike, visitors arrive at the shore of Esmeralda Lagoon, but the main attraction is hard to choose. Both the emerald-green glacier water and the beavers that ply its waters are equally stunning. Other native fauna, including guanaco, foxes and condors are commonly sighted along the hike to and from the lake.

Helicopter tours also depart Ushuaia airfield and fly across the Fuegian Andes, past Olivia Mountain to Esmeralda Lagoon.

In the winter months, the lake freezes and the Southern Andes are covered in snow. Tours still hike into the lake; however, it’s less about the destination and more about experiencing a rare winter wonderland.

We are a boutique receptive agency and our passion is to take care of every detail. Our proposal will take you to a trekking path that reaches the Emerald Lagoon. From the hotel we will go by comfortable transport to the beginning of the trail. From there we will take the path that enters the forest within the Lasifashaj Valley. We will cross several turbales and rocky terrain. We will continue our walk along the Esmeralda River until we reach the indescribable Laguna Esmeralda, a small lake of glacial origin, which owes its name to the color that the sediments that come from the Ojo del Albino Glacier give it. This color can only be seen in summer since in winter it will be frozen and covered with snow. While we enjoy the view of the Lagoon we will load energies eating a box lunch. We will be able to undertake the return, where the road will be familiar to us and we will have the last chance to appreciate the beauties that surround us.
