Twenty-one kilometres from Camerón lies Lago Blanco itself, majestic and brooding, surrounded by steeply forested hills and snow-covered mountains, where you’ll find plenty of wilderness in which to trek, fish and camp.

From Lago Blanco the road continues further south, past Lago Deseado, currently ending just beyond the majestic Lago Fagnano, part of Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego. The Chilean government has big plans for Tierra del Fuego, which include building a completely new settlement on the shores of the lake, thus providing easier access to the natural attractions on the Argentinian side.
