Full description
An off-road vehicle will pick you up at your hotel to take you through the Fuegian Andes Mountain Range to visit three special viewpoints. Head down an old woodcutter's path across the forest and down a hill until reaching Fagnano Lake. Then, cross by foot the beautiful native forest towards Escondido Lake. Once you reach the refugee, you will taste a delicious traditional asado (barbecue). Finally, after lunch, grab the oars with your paddle buddy to start your 45-minute canoe excursion. Enjoy the beautiful landscape from the water! At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Ushuaia.

Fantastic good trip, highly recommended.

Varied and fun activity, including kayaking, the 4x4 route and the "photographic" stops at the Miradors. Excellent lunch, even with vegetarian options (if requested earlier). I would have also liked to have a longer walk on foot than on the lake, but overall excellent.
