Day 2 - Ainsworth Bay - Tucket Islet

At dawn, we continue navigating through Almirantazgo Sound, arriving at Ainsworth Bay, inside the Alberto De Agostini National Park. From a distance we may see the Marinelli Glacier which descends from the Darwin Mountain Range, and we will learn how life begins after the retreat of the ice. We will also take a walk to discover a beaver dam in the marvelous subpolar Magellanic forest.
On the beach, we will try to see elephant seals, but we cannot guarantee this as the precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Later, we sail to Tuckers Islets, and after lunch we board the Zodiac boats to view Magellanic Penguins (which only live in the Southern Hemisphere), and Cormorants.

(*) In September and April this excursion is replaced by Brookes Bay where we land for a short walk to approach a glacier.

Day 3 - Pia Glacier - Glacier Alley

We navigate along the main part of the Beagle Channel to reach Pia Fjord, where we disembark near Pia Glacier.
We take a short hike to a look-out point with a spectacular view of the entire glacier tongue, stretching from high in the mountains all the way to the sea.
After this unforgettable experience, we continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic Glacier Alley

Day 4 - Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay

We sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark (weather permitting).
The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 425-meter (1,394-foot) high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the End of the Earth. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005.

In the afternoon, we go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the largest regions of Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of Lengas, Coihues, Canelos, ferns, and other native vegetation to reach a look-out point.

You did a phenomenal job, all the best in everything!

Hello dear friends,

Thank you Patty, Vera & Yuna for organizing and helping us go through an unforgettable journey.

First learned about SayHeque in 2014 while searching for help organizing a tour from Brasil to Iguazu - I wrote to some companies and SayHeque were the most helpful and caring and organized. Chose to work with you because of good pass experience, the way you cared about my and my children's personal needs and being kind and informal and caring and your very good organizing and planning ability and choice of excursions.

The whole trip, for myself and my daughter Ma'ayan was a fantastic and unique experience - from the connection with you and the planning more than half a year ago to the recent planning to helping us and taking us through the trip - it was a joy working with you. Also a good planning of activities vs. time to rest.

The way you fixed and adjusted the whole itenerary - from the start, the choice of activities, places , tour companies, transfers - fantastic. Then taking care that all works and of course helping us when we got stuck because of a cancelled flight - the way you rescheduled rhings and cared for us - we felt like we have a family taking care of us in Buenos Aires while we are in the wilderness of Patagonia.

Thank you for the recommendations about things to do in spare time - when I followed them they were always very good.
Last 2 days in Buenos Aires which I planned myself were great too - and the way you organized things was the inspiration for me (and I always knew that if I have trouble I can call you)

There were many highlights - the best was helping us and rescheduling the plans when things got mixed up because of cancelled flight - also the feeling I got from you that I have someone I can trust in a far away country, especially as I was with a child. Of course many of the tours.

Our favorite hotel was actually Stella Australis ship - high class, great-unbelievable fantastic personal care, guidance and activity, of course Bahia Bustamante - staff and location and activities, also Kau-Yatun in El-Calafate (very helpful staff, fantastic facilities), Piren in P.Madryn (staff, location, facilities)

Almost all excursions were great but 3 stand out and were unforgettable - Stella Australis, Bahia Bustamante and Snorkeling with Lobos Marinos.
Punta Tumbo, Whale watching (actually they could do it better but the event itself is amazing) and Estancia Habersteron also fantastic.

Everybody on the Stella Australis, the guide on the Estancia Harbersteron tour, Gabriel on the Parque Nacional TDF tour, Matias and his guides in B.Bustamonte and the guides of Master Divers P.Madryn (Matias and the the girl in the reception - forgot her name, sorry). Also the guide on the Punta Tumbo tour (and the whole Huinca Travel agency staff) were great.
Also would like to thank the drivers : From BSAS EZE airport to AJP airport, drivers on the 2 TDF tours, driver on the Punta tumbo tour.

Not much to improve – just some comments: Peninsula Valdez and whale watching was a little bit rushed on one hand and time wasted on the other hand - the place changed and it should be let known that one cannot really see Elephant Seals from close by, and it was nice if whale watching was less crowded, explained better - and i would have gotten a better explanation about the option of buying DVD / photos of the experience. Patagonia IF hotel in Puerto Natales is not so good - nice and caring staff but bad facilities, sorry.

Again to team SayHeque - TODA RABA - may god bless you!!! See you again asap

We enjoyed the tip immensely - The highlight of the trip was the Stella Australis which was fantastic. I would recommend that to anybody. Really world class.

Hi Vanessa,

Sorry for the long delay in replying. Things got a bit hectic here.

We enjoyed the tip immensely but found the travel delays on certain days very frustrating. If I had to arrange the itinerary again, I would work hard at optimizing flight schedules to eliminate the long waits we had. If unavoidable then one needs to arrange skilful in fills to use up time constructively. e.g. At Puerto Arenas, organize a guide to show you the town and give you an insight into what makes southern Chile tick.

We found some of the hotels OUT of TOWN which meant taxi, taxi, taxi to get anywhere. Possibly suggest a hire car or better still, a driver service for the duration of stay to deal with shopping trips, eating at restaurants, etc. Of course, the hotel in El Calafate was substandard so you need to find a better solution.

The day of self-drive at Puerto Varas was a waste of time and we should have had a guided tour. We wanted to go to Chiloe but were told when we got the car that that was too far. Also, the GPS only spoke Spanish so was pretty useless and nobody had any decent maps so we were severely restricted. If we had had a guide we could have arranged the trip to Chiloe and planned the itinerary to suit.

The highlight of the trip was the Stella Australis which was fantastic. I would recommend that to anybody. Really world class.

Torres del Paine was spectacular and we should have spent an extra day there. The agents at Ushuaia (forgot name) were very poor and I would recommend you look for something better. The excursion we had with them was poor, all in Spanish, and they showed no interest in us so we got a bad deal.

Hope the comments are helpful.

We really enjoyed your company.

Kind Regards,

Johan

We were very happy with the trip and with the services that Say Hueque provided.

Hi Patty,

The flight home was very long, but we made it.

We were very happy with the trip and with the services that Say Hueque provided.

Hotel: All the hotels were very nice, although the Puerto Iguazu Loi Suites was pretty special with the jungle atmosphere.
Excursion: The Stella Australis cruise was fantastic. And of course, Iguazu Falls are also spectacular.
We particularly appreciated that everyone was very punctual. It was nice not to have to worry about getting picked up. We also appreciated all of your tips about what to do in Buenos Aires. I don’t have any suggestions for improvements. If we come to Argentina again, we will definitely contact you.
