The Off Road Tour From Ushuaia
One of the best experiences I had when I was in Ushuaia was the off road tour in a land rover ( U$110). We got to the regional lakes by secondary roads aboard a 4×4 vehicle, go deep into the forest …..
Escondido Lake park offers visitors camping and fishing and If need tent sites…
You can get to Fagnano Lake and Escondido Lake and there you even have a ride inside the lake.
