Full description

An off-road vehicle will pick you up at your hotel to take you through the Fuegian Andes Mountain Range to visit three special viewpoints.

Head down an old woodcutter's path across the forest and down a hill until you reach Fagnano Lake. Then, cross by foot the beautiful native forest towards Escondido Lake. Once you reach a wooden cottage, head inside and tuck into a delicious traditional asado (barbecue). Finally, after lunch, grab the oars with a paddle buddy to start your 45-minute canoe excursion. Enjoy the beautiful landscape from the water. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Ushuaia.

There was a mix up with my reservation and I was picked up on this tour on a wrong day. Once we got going it was ok. The 4x4 part was ok, the kayaking part was unfortunately very short due to sudden rain pour but still enjoyable. We then went for a decent lunch in a nearby restaurant. All in all, enjoyable experience, however, speaking Spanish will help to communicate with your fellow travellers.

Fantastic good trip, highly recommended.

Varied and fun activity, including kayaking, the 4x4 route and the "photographic" stops at the Miradors. Excellent lunch, even with vegetarian options (if requested earlier). I would have also liked to have a longer walk on foot than on the lake, but overall excellent.
