Vinciguerra Glacier Trekking, the best trekking in the world, from Ushuaia
The exciting mountain trail is of medium difficulty, but can be more challenging in late fall or early spring due to the presence of ice, snow and mud on the slope. To cross it, it is necessary to wear trekking boots and warm waterproof clothing all year round.
The tour begins at a gate located at the bottom of the Andorra Valley, about 8 kilometers from downtown Ushuaia. Crossing a large peat bog, you must travel along the left bank of the Arroyo Grande. Once you cross the bridge, you enter a wooded area where the trail becomes more traversable, with some climbs that require a bit of physical exertion. When we reach the end of the vegetation, we see the last stretch of the trail: the ascent up a rocky slope that leads to the shore of the Laguna de los Témpanos.
One kilometer from the bridge is the fork that leads to the Laguna Encantada. At the source of the watercourse and in the glacier mass, there are measurement elements (stakes) that serve to monitor the behavior of the glaciers and their relationship with the phenomenon of Climate Change. Please do not touch them.
The glacier was named Vinciguerra by the Italian expeditionary Giacomo Bove, in memory of the zoologist who accompanied him on the Italian-Argentine scientific expedition to Tierra del Fuego in 1882.
