ESCONDIDA LAKE

“JAIME MET US , AND GREETED ME LIKE AN OLD FRIEND – BIG HUGS AND KISSES ON BOTH CHEEKS… WE HAVE BEEN EMAILING BACK AND FORTH SINCE LAST MARCH ABOUT ALL THESE TOURS, AND YES, I FELT LIKE I WAS GREETING SOMEONE I KNEW QUITE WELL, RATHER THAN MEETING HIM OF THE FIRST TIME!”

Escondido Lake- which means ‘hidden’, is located in at the foot of Garibaldi mountain pass. It’s a great getaway option of the city and a place to recharge your batteries with fresh air, energizing walks, beautiful landscapes and more.

The tour starts departing from Ushuaia where you will meet with the tour guide and again on the National route #3 (Pan-American) towards the north of the island, to reach the Fuegian Andes through valleys covered by peat bogs. Escondido lake is about 60 kilometers from Ushuaia. We will cross the Carbajal, the Huskies, Tierra Mayor and Las Cotorras valleys, where it is possible, during the winter to practice the cross-country ski style. The next point of the tour will be the Garibaldi Pass (450 meters above the sea level), which we will use to cross the Mountain range of the Andes, with the beautiful view of the Lakes Escondido and Fagnano- one of the largest lakes in the world, it occupies an active tectonic depression which separates the South American and Scotia Plates. Return on the same National Route 3 with time to rest in one of the recreation centers in the valley to enjoy some activities or lunch.

Nature has been barely touched here and it is a great opportunity to see the forest and the whole ecosystem in their best shape when it is not been harmed by people.

This tour is recommended for nature-lovers and adventurers, or families with kids. A great travel option for photographers- scenic views from the hills around the lake are great points to take shots of the natural landscape- no matter if you are professional or not, the photos are stunning from this place- it’s interesting to see how colors change as the weather changes. Consider pairing with a visit to Ushuaia city, the Tierra del Fuego National Park or Beagle Channel Sailing. For other South America tours, contact us here.
