FROM USHUAIA: ESCONDIDO AND FAGNANO LAKES:
60 km. north of Ushuaia (along N° 3 national road), located in between the mountains at the base of Garibaldi Path, we find this very picturesque lake, with a hostelry at its side. Besides walking along the footpaths around the mountains, it is possible to practice sport fishing here. Fagnano is an imposing international lake, placed 100 km. north of Ushuaia (N° 3 national road) and it is recognized for offering good fishing possibilities. A hostelry, campsites and cottages form part of the accommodation options by the lakeside.

FROM USHUAIA: MARTIAL GLACIAR

After going through a winding car road that climbs from Ushuaia to the Martial chain, you get to the base of the alpine skiing slope, where a chair lift operates. From this point, a track begins and takes you up to the glacier. It is necessary to climb for two and a half hours, approximately, and all along the circuit it is possible to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the city, Beagle Channel and the Chilean islands: Navarino and Hoste.
An interesting option is to reach the mountain chain, following the valley that goes to the right after reaching the other end of the chair lift. This walk is not too difficult and gives the possibility to obtain an excellent view of the Andorra valley (that goes behind the Martial chain), as well as of Ushuaia city and Beagle Channel . Degree of difficulty: Medium - Length: 4 km (to the glacier).

USHUAIA PRISON MUSEUM
On January 1896 the first group of 14 convicts arrived on board the naval ship "1° de Mayo". In this way the "reincidents jail" got under way housed temporarily in wooden and tin hunts.
The idea was to colonize with convicts and they immediately sent 11 more men and 9 women volunteers. All were ex-convicts who had fallen again. More about Ushuaia Prison Museum ...
