Lago Roca in Ushuaia
Fifty kms away to the west of Ushuaia we reach the Lago Roca: this wide morenic lake is actually divided in two by the chilean-argentinian border, the chilean side being commonly called Lago Erràzuriz. Both names are those of the two presidents that signed a treaty in 1899 to establish the border between the two nations. Recently the lake is recovering its original indigenous name of Lago Acigami, which in the Yagàn language means "elongated basket", due to its peculiar shape.
The lake itself is amazing, with crystalline waters sitting like a jewel amongst the mountains and the woods. The range of activities we can practice here is astounding, from horseback riding to fishing, from trekking to birdwatching. There is a camping available in the area so we can be completely in touch with the wilder side of nature and enjoy the silence and the tranquility of this haven.
