Reviews

We had a great time with the crew at Patagonia Hikes as well as at the Eco-Domes. Everyone was super friendly and informative. The food at the eco-domes was so delicious, and they are so accommodating (I am a vegetarian)! Though we could have easily done these hikes ourselves we found it was much more enjoyable to spend the time with our guide and learn all about Patagonia, the landscape, vegetation, animals, etc. and of course, about the town of El Chalten! Thank you everyone :)
