Full description

Head off on a full-day excursion in the wilderness of southern Argentina with a jeep tour, followed by horseback riding, and a walk around marvellous lakes with the majestic Andes Mountains surrounding you.

Start your day bright and early with a pickup at your hotel, and head straight to the lake region by driving on the national route N°3, where you will cross peat valleys and the Andes Mountains through the Garibaldi Pass. Continue along the road through old trails used for logging, marvelling at the deep valleys around you as your expert local guide tells you the history of the route and the mountains. Once you cross the iconic Andes Mountains, catch a glimpse of the glorious Lago Escondido, a large lake, before descending to its borders, where you'll begin your off-roading adventure. Once there, stop for a rest to meet your horses, and to enjoy a delicious snack. Then, hop on your horse, especially chosen according to each person's riding experience, and enjoy a leisurely ride for 30 minutes. Next, tuck into a local lunch on the side of one of the largest lakes in Argentina, the Lago Fagnano, including an Argentine platter of cheeses and charcuterie as a starter, followed by meat with grilled vegetables, salads, and tea or coffee. After the meal, take a walk to enjoy the immensity of the Lake Fagnano up close, before returning to Ushuaia for an approximate 5 PM arrival.
