It was a FABULOUS trip – so THANK YOU! All the bookings, guides and transport that ANDEAN set up worked out very well for us and made for a great trip. For me the highlights of the trip were seeing the incredible landscapes of Patagonia, Perito Moreno glacier, the beautiful hikes to Lago del Torre and Fitzroy in Los Glacieres, and completing the Torres del Paine W trek with highpoints of Frances Valley and the Torres.
The W-trek was a little harder than we anticipated mostly due to weather which we had heard about but was truly unlike anything I’ve experienced (50-90km/hr winds)! But the trek was a good challenge and we were proud to have completed it! Everything you set up worked out very well for us – having 2 nights at Refugio Chileno was super as that gave us more options to get up to the Torres which we saw very well in between snow showers. I would not have wanted to walk up to the Torres on the same day as getting to another hut.
We also had a great time at Perito Moreno and at El Chalten where we did two 25km hikes and got great views of the Fitzroy range. I’m glad to have done all that before the TdP – would not want to have missed that! I really liked the town of El Chalten and the hikes there were a bit easier and absolutely beautiful. After TdP, we rested in style on the MV Stella Australis (having gotten upgraded to a first class cabin!) on our voyage through Tierra del Fuego and the Beagle Channel to Ushuaia.
This was truly a life-changing wonderful trip!

Want to know what and where to eat in the Galapagos Islands?

Eating out choices in the Galapagos Islands have blossomed, with many new bars, cafes and restaurants opening in recent years, as hotel-based holidays have become more popular. Top-end dining has truly yet to arrive at the Galapagos Islands due to its remote location and difficulty in importing ingredients. However, the three main islands, Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela, offer a wide range of restaurants. They suit almost every budget and cater for most dietary requirements, from vegan to vegetarian, gluten-free and more. What you will find is Ecuadorian and international cuisine featuring a lot of fish, rice, vegetables …
