Meet your local guide at your hotel in Ushuaia, then board the coach for your full-day trip into Patagonia's stunning scenery. Pass the peat bogs of the southernmost Fuegian Andes as you learn about the geology, history, and wildlife in the region. Explore several valleys, including the Huskies, Carbajal, Las Cotorras and Carbajal.

Cross over the Andes through Garibaldi Pass at an altitude of 1,476 feet (450 meters) where you will glimpse your first views of Lake Fagnano and Lake Escondido. As the coach descends into the valley toward the glassy lakes, enjoy the fantastic alpine scenery.

Visit Lake Fagnano's defunct Martinez Sawmill, which provides insight into local history and how the area's residents once lived their lives. After strolling around the lake and enjoying the views, re-board the bus bound for Las Cotorras Valley, where you will have the opportunity to indulge in an authentic Feugian lamb feast (own expense).

Your full-day tour of the lakes of the Fuegian Andes finishes with drop-off at your Ushuaia hotel.

The full-day tour to the lakes was a very enjoyable trip. We saw scenery that was quite spectacular and had a wonderful lunch at the Tierra Mayor restaurant. A very pleasant day and many stops along the way.

It was really lost time. We drove only the highway to the lake Fagnano and back, 1 hr we spent at the lake in the restaurant and 2 hr in other restaurant for lunch. If you will go to Punta Arenas by bus, you will see the same. Boring tour.

Unfortunately the weather was bad and cloudy - lake escondido was really well-hidden! Haha Nevertheless I would only recommend this tour if you have more difficulty moving around or hate the outdoors (much of it was spent in the van). I would recommend some hiking and the 4WD experience instead.

Highly recommended for those who want a high level tour of the two beautiful lakes in Ushuaia! The tour guide was very nice and informative of the history behind the landmarks and we had ample time to take in the view of the lakes. The tour ended with a tasty dinner of lamb.

Tour guide was a little impersonal. The scenery was stunning but perhaps it'd be better to hire a care and do the drive all you need to do is follow highway 3, which is the main road, north of town and you're there. And you can make your own stops along the way. I was a solo traveller on a tour with no one I had anything in common with, so perhaps my opinion is a little jaded by that. Either way, whether you do this tour through Viator, or hire a car and head to the lake by yourself, the scenery is worth it.

The area is absolutely beautiful, but the tour was only ok. There really is no walking around. The positives were the scenery and a nice stop for lunch. The negatives included the tour guide only summarizing the information in English and not offering a hotel drop off (although the guide was nice and paid for my cab to my hotel).

Reserva n° 800950248, se olvidaron de avisar al guia o el transporte que nos pasaran a buscar por el hotel Monaco, después cuando nosotras llamamos para preguntar nos pidieron que vayamos a esperar al hotel Ushuaia lo que generó otro gasto, esperamos ahí, paso un micro de rumbo sur que nos dijo que no era para nosotras, me vuelven a llamar xq la agencia se olvido de avisar que subían 2 personas más, por lo que no pudimos hacer la excursion, estoy a la espera de la devolución completa o la anulación de la compra que ya me figura en mi tarjeta de credito

la verdad que la excursión es un poco densa. Solo estuvimos una hora en un lugar Lago Fagnano donde paramos y pudimos pasear y tener un recorrido y disfrutar de la vista, despues mucho micro, tres horas casi para almorzar en un lugar que no tenia gran cosa para pasear, ademas de que nos toco un dia de lluvia. Bueno, conclusión, los paisajes muy bonitos, pero no me gusto mucho la excursión.
