Was there when the wind was howling, hard to imagine a lake with waves as big as the ocean can produce, quite spectacular!
If you still have time after visiting the Parque National Tierra del Fuego, this is a nice excursion from Ushuaia. We did it with our car on the road N3, a perfectly paved road suitable for all vehicles, it is about 250Km return and takes about half day. The road N3 takes you over a mountain pass where you have... More
when driving through out this region, every turn you make deserves a photo. Great lanscape indeed. I believe the mountains must come along in the same frame, so it's not only a nice few.
Llegar al lago Fagnano desde Ushuaia significa cruzar la cordillera por un camino de ruta maravilloso. El lago mide más de 100 km de largo y es de color esmeralda. Una de las cosas mas asombrosas que hay. Vale el viaje. Getting to Lake Fagnano from Ushuaia means crossing the Cordillera by a wonderful road trip. The lake is over... More

A beautiful place to take pictures from Fagnano and Escondido's lakes but there is no infrasctructure on the road to do it. The cars and buses just stop along the roadside (where it is always raining and which road is very slithery because of the snow) and people go to outside to take pictures. But the view compensates the risks.
Laguna Esmeralda is far and above the coolest lake in the Ushuaia area... Don't waste your day here if you have limited time be sure to head to LAguna Esmeralda first.
These are both lovely lakes, although the hidden lake we did not have best weather to enjoy it. Fagnano is amazing, since it is so long/big. We were able to enjoy these on not very windy days.We did this via a 4x4 tour that also included a boat ride return on hidden lake.
