Full-Day Tour to Lake Fagnano and Lake Escondido

Meet your local guide at your hotel in Ushuaia, then board the coach for your full-day trip into Patagonia's stunning scenery. Pass the peat bogs of the southernmost Feugian Andes as you learn about the geology, history and wildlife in the region. Explore several valleys, including the Huskies, Carbajal, Las Cotorras and Carbajal.

Cross over the Andes through Garibaldi Pass at an altitude of 1,476 feet (450 meters) where you will glimpse your first views of Lake Fagnano and Lake Escondido. As the coach descends into the valley toward the glassy lakes, enjoy the fantastic alpine scenery.

Visit Lake Fagnano's defunct Martinez Sawmill, which provides insight into local history and how the area's residents once lived their lives. After strolling around the lake and enjoying the views, re-board the bus bound for Las Cotorras Valley, where you will have the opportunity to indulge in an authentic Feugian lamb feast (own expense).

Your full-day tour of the lakes of the Feugian Andes finishes with drop-off at your Ushuaia hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

Highly recommended for those who want a high level tour of the two beautiful lakes in Ushuaia! The tour guide was very nice and informative of the history behind the landmarks and we had ample time to take in the view of the lakes. The tour ended with a tasty dinner of lamb.

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 2017

Unfortunately the weather was bad and cloudy - lake escondido was really well-hidden! Haha
Nevertheless I would only recommend this tour if you have more difficulty moving around or hate the outdoors (much of it was spent in the van).
I would recommend some hiking and the 4WD experience instead.

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).
