Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Tierra del Fuego / Ushuaia / Glacier Martial
A short trip from the city, Glacier Martial offers an array of hiking trails and walks of varying difficulties. Providing nearby Ushuaia with much of its fresh water, the glacier rises behind town and serves as a natural vantage point over the surrounding area. Head for the start of the main trail--the most common route for visitors--and hike your way up through the gorge to the top of the hill (do ensure that you have proper hiking gear before setting off). Alternatively, hop aboard the chairlift, which whizzes you to the top in just 15 minutes and eliminates the need for trekking experience. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the view of the gorge and ocean from the summit. Add Glacier Martial and other attractions to your Ushuaia trip itinerary using our Ushuaia road trip app.
