Description

This trail is, for many, the most beautiful easy run around Ushuaia. It leads through different vegetation zones, beginning in the young forest, then winding through beaver dams and moors. Just before the lagoon, you'll find untouched Lenga forests. The rugged mountains of the Sierra Alvear and a hanging glacier encircle the enchanting laguna.

In addition, the trail is very simple and suitable for the whole family. The trail is about 4.8 km each way.
