Full-Day Tour to Lake Fagnano and Lake Escondido

Full-Day Tour to Lake Fagnano and Lake Escondido

Leave Ushuaia behind and travel through the peat bog-covered valleys of the southernmost stretches of the Fuegian Andes. Explore the nature of this Patagonian region in the Carbajal, Huskies, Tierra Mayor and Las Cotorras valleys, all popular cross-country skiing destinations in the winter.

You'll start by crossing the sharply rising Andes at Garibaldi Pass (1,476 feet/450 meters), host to spectacular views of the lakes Escondido and Fagnano. Then, travel down the mountain beside Lake Escondido and absorb the surroundings in their natural rustic charm.

You'll continue with a visit to the Martinez sawmill along Lake Fagnano. Although no longer in operation, this interesting site provides a glimpse into the local history. After enjoying the scenery around the lake, you'll make a final stop in Las Cotorras Valley, where you'll indulge in a traditional Fuegian lamb barbecue (not included in price).

Excellent trip - beautiful lakes / mountains etc. Visit to see some huskies…………..where lunch stop was = really delicious!!! Excellent tour guide…………everyone spanish speaking except my friend + I - it was like having a private guide - great - learnt lots!

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

An excellent tour - very good guide with plenty of stops to break the journey. Good Value.

3 star rating: Worth doing March 2015

Tour guide was a little impersonal. The scenery was stunning but perhaps it'd be better to hire a care and do the drive all you need to do is follow highway 3, which is the main road, north of town and you're there. And you can make your own stops along the way. I was a solo traveller on a tour with no one I had anything in common with, so perhaps my opinion is a little jaded by that. Either way, whether you do this tour through Viator, or hire a car and head to the lake by yourself, the scenery is worth it.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2013

I wish I could walk around more.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

The area is absolutely beautiful, but the tour was only ok. There really is no walking around. The positives were the scenery and a nice stop for lunch. The negatives included the tour guide only summarizing the information in English and not offering a hotel drop off (although the guide was nice and paid for my cab to my hotel).
