Everything about our day in Tierra del Fuego was great. Timely pick up from hostal, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful guides and driver. Loved the hike, lunch and canoeing. I totally recommend this tour!
I am 66 years old and the hike was of moderate difficulty and I was able to do it. I was not the fastest and Pedro made sure I was able to get down some of the steeper sections. It was rainy, so part of trail was slippery.
The canoe was a raft with 5-6 people in each, with guide in the back. Everyone paddles and it is a very stable boat.
In between the hike and canoe we had a very good lunch.
Guide was excellent and the rafting portion was fun since it was low tide. Most sections you drift leisurely with the current so not much paddling was required until the end when there was a headwind. The hiking portion was incredibly scenic.
The guides were outstanding: friendly, really informative but not intrusive, and they stopped frequently and encouraged us to experience the amazing place we were visiting. The trip was well laid out and stunningly beautiful. Getting out on the water provided a wonderfully different perspective. Well done.
An excellent trip with amazing guides Fecundo and Miguel. As we were the only 2 in the group we did a shorter canoe trip. The coastal walk was very enjoyable.
Altogether a great tour and would highly recommend
The tour was well organized. However, organizing this through Viator is more expensive. You can potentially save about 50 per person if you organize this tour locally. We didn't know until we got to Ushuaia to find out that there are a lot of local tour operators that offer semilar tours.
Alex was a great tour guide-he does it all-very informative about area, fauna, etc. Additionally, he and driver cook, clean, assist and are very friendly. Picked us up at our apartment on time, drove to National Park explaining as we went along. First stop was canoe, which were actually rubber rafts--there is a guide in one and then they put the rest of us in others-a great and beautiful experience. We got lucky as the rain stopped and sun came out. After canoe experience, go to an eco-dome for wine, appetizers and a very good grilled chicken lunch. Then off to the hike! Is about 5 hours and takes about 3 hours. Stopping along the way for photos, etc. However, not leisurely.
We did the Costera he trail is moderate-lots of ups and downs and twists- a little more strenuous at times than we thought. Others discussed as well-but all so worth it! Beautiful thru the forest and along the coast. Wonderful experience!
This was a fun tour. The hiking and canoeing were a little too rushed in my opinion. The lunch was excellent! I wish I could have had my own kayak because I didn't enjoy trying to canoe with the other folks in the tour group we didn't mesh well as a team and that was frustrating.
