The glacier, located on the summit of Martial’s mounts, owes its name to Captain Ferdinand Martial of the Mission Scientifique du Cap Horn, a French expedition to the region of Cape Horn that arrived in Tierra del Fuego in September 1882 on board of the ship Romanche.

A perfect way to spend a summer’s day near Ushuaia, Argentina. Twenty minute cab ride to base of the ski area and a lovely hike up the mountain to the base of the glacier. Beautiful views of the bay and surrounding mountain ranges.
