Nawel (i know i am spelling it wrong) was really wonderful, pleasant, and overall my dad and I had a blast. The driver knew exactly what he was doing and it was impressive! Nawel knew a lot about everything- he pretty much was able to answer all of our questions. We saw amazing lakes in the area, had one of the best Lunch i’ve had in Ushuaia (better than a restaurant) and our group was very social and we all were buddies by the end of it. Would definitely recommend!

A spectacular tour We leave with the 4x4 they will tell you the history of Ushuaia and its habitat When you arrive at the Garibaldi pass, you go down to the viewpoint then start the trio in the middle of lakes and untraced routes, very fun It ends with an excellent barbecue, with chopped salad, wine and dessert. Excellent

It was a fantastic day, Canal's organization was impeccable, we were in the car with Carlos, a splendid person. After reaching Lake Fagnano and skirting its shores, we stopped at the refuge and ate the famous "parilla", all excellent! Martina and Diego (from Italy).
