Cerro Alarkén Nature Reserve

In a well-cared and protected setting, a program of activities invites you to enjoy the Ushuaia nature reserve, with a panoramic view of the southernmost capital.

More than 100 ha that preserve a native forest of lengas, ñires and coihues make up the Cerro Alarkén Natural Reserve. Very close to the summit of the hill, there is a luxury destination, Arakur Ushuaia , a hotel that extends along a natural balcony, in beautiful harmony with the surroundings.

Nature and comfort
The reserve has several marked circuits to start a simple walk or some more complex one. The Summit of Cerro Alarkén circuit leads to the top with 360 ° panoramic views. The Turbal circuit takes a peat bog witnessing the disappearance of the glaciers, with views of the Andorra and Río Chico valleys, the Vinciguerra glacier, Mount Olivia and Cerro Cinco Hermanos. This trail joins the Bosque and Mirador de la Bahía circuits, a route marked by old ax trails that approach a viewpoint on the Beagle Channel. The fourth circuit is more difficult and it is recommended to be accompanied by a guide. It is the circuit of the Río Chico Valley, where cascaded waterfalls, forests, wetlands, castoreras cross, until you reach a privileged viewpoint of the imposing Olivia.

During the walks it is possible to meet native fauna such as red foxes, woodpeckers, black eagles and Andean condor.
