Magnificent tour of the hinterland of Ushuaia in the company of Jorge on the immense family lands by the lakes, where they raise horses. Break and lunch in the comfortable cabins of their family. Adorable people who share the characteristics and history of the region, impressive 4x4 trips, well-trained and quiet horses, good local meals and superb landscapes.

Great tour, perfect timing to all the stops, Raul our guide was absolutely incredible and really made the whole day as informative as it was special. Plenty of food on the boat in between stops. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a day trip out on the water when visiting Bariloche.

Exotic visit just a stone's throw from Ushuaïa. Have seen the marine animals on the rocks and even condors close enough. We even had a whale nearby. Modern and comfortable boat with cafeteria on board.

Excellent, pick up on time at the place indicated at the time of booking. The tour as described.

Everything very punctual, excellent personalized service, exquisite lunch.
