"Great time on our 3- day trip. Good opportunity to explore the area around Ushuaia, Gable island, penguins, Heart of the Island, with excellent, well-prepared and flexible guides. Highly recommended."
"My husband and I signed up for the 3 Day Adventure and it was everything we had hoped for. Cami and Edu were excellent guides and we were able to see and do a lot: the first day is on an island (Gable Island) on the Beagle Channel where we hiked, canoed and went to visit the penguins. We camped that night on the island and the food was excellent. The second day we hiked in the Andes. This was actually a more difficult hike than anticipated, but we made it! That night we stayed in a little cabin in Tolhuin overlooking Lago Fagnano. The third day we went into the heart of Tierra del Fuego and hiked to Lago Yanush, saw lots of guanacos and even an Andean Condor."
"Our 3 day additional programm, after 2 hiking weeks in Patagonia, was very intensiv and full of new experiences. We did a nice paddling trip in the silence of Larsiphashaj Rio and Beagle Channel, have boot navigation to the Martillo Island with a stop at the coast to see a lot of Magellan Penguins from a really short distance. In the afternoon we had a hiking tour, nearly 3 hours, on Gable Island with many informations about the bibers. During the navigation to Estancia Haberton the surprise was a big and active group of sea lions. The last part of the day was connected with a thrilling 4x4 tour to the Lago Fagnano an the overnighting in a tent. The hiking tour "Crossing the Andes" at the second day was unfortunately very wet and muddy. But we are happy, that we are able to dry all closes and hiking boots in the good heated cabins near Tolhuin. On a sunny day we were riding by 4x4 into the heart of Fireland. Then we climbed the Cerro Cabras. The highlight was a Condor at the top ans the view to many lakes. We thanks aour guides, Camila and Eduardo which have done there jobs with delight knowledge and competence. Thats why it was a very lovely tour with excellent self made meals all time! Thank you Guides!!!"
