Crossing the Andes mountains
In this tour we depart from Ushuaia city and drive through the valley that is sourrounded by the Andes range, woods and peat bogs. The route leads us upwards the Garibaldi pass from where we'll enjoy the view of Escondido (Hidden) Lake and we'll cross the mountains aiming the heart of the island: a tiny village called Tolhuin that nests on the shore of Fagnano lake. I'll show you our history, our culture but we'll enjoy mostly the nature of Tierra del Fuego.

Outstanding! We had a great day with Paula! She took us to Tolhuin, a small town, in the middle of nowhere, literally, that has no cell service. Not being negative here in my comments...it is really a charming place! That bakery stop was worth it! �� The drive to get here is amazing! So beautiful! Since we were on a cruise, Paula offered her services to drive us from our hotel to the dock. Totally worth it as she can drive right up to the ship where cabs leave u @ the gates Thanks Paula!
