I had a great experience with Vicky. She was very patient and an excellent guide. I learned so much from her on the Laguna de Los Tres hike.

This was an incredible experience. Our guide, Pablo, was great. And the eco domes were luxurious while still feeling rustic. 10/10 would recommend

My two friends and I had a great stay in the house managed by Patagonia hikes. The house is spacious and the views are spectacular. Maria and German were super responsive to questions and our requests for fireplace wood and kitchen wares. There are a few flights of stairs leading to the front door so those with mobility challenges may want to inquire ahead of time. The location is perfect- easy walks to trailheads, and the main avenue with shops, restaurants, and equipment stores. Thanks for hosting us!

I approached several companies to arrange hiking. PH were quick to reply, respond to questions, and adapt to our plans. The people in the office were attentive, and importantly Rodrigo, our guide through the mountains was a nice guy; informed, patient and passionate about his environment. Lucky with the weather, we had a great trip.
