Full description
Leaving Ushuaia, travel along National Route 3, northeast towards the mountain peaks of Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos. Through the journey along Carabajal Valley, see “circus” glaciers, suspended valleys, and peats. Your next stop will be the Valle de Lobos Winter Center, a breeding center for dog sleds, Syberian Huskies, and Alaskan Huskies.   Continue your trip to find peat valleys, small glaciers, cross-country skiing centers, the alpine skiing center of Beaver Mountain, cascades and natural habitats that have been modified by the beavers. Make your way up to the Garibaldi Crossing through the winding road, surrounded by forests full of Lengas and Ñires. Take some time to enjoy the panoramic views of Lakes Escondido, Fagnano, and their surroundings from Garibaldi’s Viewpoint. On the way to Lake Fagnano, see the Bronzovich Sawmill, Entre Rios Rural School, and Kaiken Lodging House at the headwaters of the lake. After this last stop, begin your journey back towards the Winter Centers, where you can stop for lunch and even try typical Fuegian lamb. After, return to your hotel in Ushuaia.

It was nice, but they never clarified that by that time we went (September), they did not enter Fagnano Lake, which we could only appreciate from afar. Where I think the rate should go down if something descriptive is not done. The other very nice you learn several things. And very organized when going and looking for you.

We feel completely ripped off. To start, we were picked up by a company that was not the one with which we had the reservation (apparently it is something usual in Ushuaia) so our excursion was different from the one they had sold to the rest and still they put us in the same group. It lasted 2h less than established, we made a stop that we had not planned (the rest of the group itself) of 40min to see some dogs locked up and although we did not have the food included (and we had taken a picnic), we made another stop 2h to eat in a restaurant. This obviously was not planned either. We made a 10min stop to see a panoramic view of the mountains, another 10min stop to see a panoramic view of the lakes and a last 30min to walk around the lake. Conclusion: 50min useful in an activity announced as 8h. It was disappointing and a waste of time because it could have been perfectly combined with the Emerald Lagoon

The guides were constantly looking to sell other services and products. And we were practically forced to buy an expensive lunch.
