  • The real Patagonian atmosphere. And very well organized too. No other worlds are possible to explain a incredible experience  more »
  • The location is outstanding, the boat trip getting there spectacular. I didi not sleep there, I went for a day trip with a hike which was very nice with very good guides.  more »
  • Guiding was unprofessional and the "tour" of the museum was an embarasment. The lamb meal consisted mainly of lamb fat and gristle with very little meat. overall a very disappointing experience  more »

  • This is a really nice trip. There are several options for activity once you are at the ranch. The lunch was tasty and service efficient. The boat trip gets a view of the face of the Upsala Glacier and many icebergs calving from the glacier. Upon landing at the ranch, the group is devided into subgroups depending on which activity you chose. The staff and crew are very helpful and efficient. Tours are offered in Spanish or English but many of the guides speak other languages as well. I chose the Discovery option which includes a 4x4 drive up the mountain and a hike to an overlook where a large section of the icefield and glaciers are dramatically displayed. The views are stunning and unlike anything I've ever seen. The guides explain a bit about the glaciers and the Southern Icefield, which is the 3rd largest in the world. Whichever option you choose, this a trip not to be missed.

  • ON MARCH 18 WITH A FRIEND TRAVEL AGENT HIRED THE EXCURSION FOR THE STAY .IN MY OPINION WAS A LACK OF RESPECT AND CONSIDERATION NOT INFORMING PEOPLE THAT BECAUSE OF HIGH WINDS THE WERE GOING TO PASS VERY EVIL. THE CAPTAIN DECIDED TO RETURN TO PUNTA FLAG AFTER AN HOUR OF BROWSING. THE EXPERIENCE WAS HORRIBLE... PASSENGERS WERE VERY ANGRY TO POOR CARE PEOPLE DESERVE TO CHOOSE (IT IS NOT A PLEASURE TRIP) PLEASE NOTIFY TOURISM AS IT WILL MAKE THE TRIP... NOT TO MINIMIZE THE PROBLEM. Thank you
