A knowledgeable guide took us into the hills where we saw an eagle and its nest, guanacos, condors, rheas and many other birds. We then had a great walk high up where you could see marine fossils from millions of years ago. Afterwards we gathered...More

Unfortunately, we went on a day with a big group, and the very large 4x4 seemed to have scared off many animals (it seems that in smaller groups you get the jeeps). You're still guaranteed to see guanacos though, because they are everywhere on the...More

We were going to do the safari trip but it was too wet, so we were given the choice of going to Walichu Caves, which we did. The cave paintings weren't the best we have seen, but the rest of the trip was great. The...More

We had gone to the Perito Moreno glacier the previous day and wanted to see another side of Patagonia's beautiful barren landscape. This small group tour (6 of us plus our guide in a Land Rover) gave us exactly what we were looking for. The...More

You come for the glacier and then enjoy a totally different landscape. Interesting 4 hour drive with good explanation of the countryside, plants and animals. The final lookout point of the trip is fantastic, a wide, quiet landscape with snowy mountains in the back. The...More

We were scheduled to take this tour and somehow they lost our reservation and did not pick us up. We did not get to enjoy the adventure and they have since refunded our money. We did not have time to reschedule.
