Adventure, emotion and the best sights of one of the most beautiful places in Tierra del Fuego awaits North of Ushuaia. The Great 4x4 Adventure is the best way to know Fagnano Lake, the fifth in size in Argentina, while travelling challenging off road circuits with specially designed vehicles prepared to overcome almost any obstacle which might crop up while exploring alluring forests and the coast of the lake.

Leaving Ushuaia and heading towards the Garibaldi Pass across the Andes, enjoy a great lookout of the Escondido Lake, a small marvel hidden at the end of a valley. Here starts a tour running old unused roads, passing by Fagnano and Escondido Lakes. On board powerful 4x4 vehicles, the guides drive the passengers to discover the forest by impossible mud roads, roads that become paths ending at the Lake coast.

The landscape opens during the longest and more intense 4x4 tour in Tierra del Fuego. The skills of both vehicles and drivers can overcome all types of difficulties to get to an exclusive refuge in the centre of a natural environment, far away from the noise of modern life. Once in the forest close to Fagnano Lake there are free time to walk and explore while the guide prepares a typical Argentine barbecue, to be enjoyed with a Malbec wine from Patagonia to be shared with the group in a relaxed environment.

Families with children under 4 years of age can request a "Tailor Made Trip" based on this tour.
