Water in the Box Lunch :

We hope to build on this initiative.

Thanks again for everything

I won a competition on facebook through TourRadar. I started rock climbing, hiking and in general outdoors activities in 2016 and I have always come across Patagonia as a must destination for climbers, hikers and mountain lovers. My first memory of Fitz Roy was when Tommy Coldwell and Alex Honnold did the Fitz Traverse in 2015 which means that they traversed all the towers in the Fitz roy range going up and down all in one push that took them a week to complete. Especially El Chalten and Torres del Paine were on my list for travelling destinations. So when I saw the trips TourRadar was offering in the competition I chose the 9 days Best of Patagonia.

The booking process was very smooth and I was communicating via email with both people from TourRadar and then with people from Say Hueque. Laura Rosales before we get to Argentina helped out a lot in terms of explaining things and booking the hotels we stayed at. All the hotels were lovely and we enjoyed our stay in every single one. Also Agostina was always available and was tracking down our whereabouts making sure everything was going alright. Thanks very much to both of you.

As I mentioned we really enjoyed our stays in all 3 hotels, but if I had to choose I would say Pudu Lodge was my favorite since El Chalten for me was the highlight of the whole trip. The girls in the front desk where amazing and super helpful. Also the location was terrific, just next to the hiking trails. My mom’s favorite was the one in Puerto Natales Weskar Patagonian Lodge because of the nice atmosphere and the great view.

My favorite excursion was the Torres del Paine with the border crossing over to Chile. Despite the cold, the wind and the really bad visibility it was a great excursion, with a great walk next to the lakes where we caught a glimpse of the rock towers, mainly their lower parts. But it was amazing to see the Chilean side of Patagonia as well.

My favorite moment from my trip was in day 1 when I reached the Mirador Laguna de los tres and the lake was frozen so I could walk on it. I got to the level of the lake facing the Fitz Roy range right in front of me and starting walking towards the granite towers. I was alone on the lake and the only thing I could hear was the sound of my footsteps on the snow that cover the whole lake. I would never forget the freedom, happiness and serenity I felt while I was so close to Fitz Roy and on a frozen lake. It never crossed my mind that Laguna de los tres would be frozen, I expected it to be a blue lake or even brown from the mud and melted snow coming from the mountains surrounding the lake. It was a lovely surprise.

Our guide in Perito Moreno Glacier excursion was amazing. Her name was Daniela ( I am pretty sure I remember correctly). She could speak English and German (and Spanish of course) and she was very sweet and knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the park and Perito Moreno glacier. Everyone in the group had a great day in the Glaciers’ National Park.

I am extremely pleased about all the aspects of the trip. You guys did a great job organising everything perfectly. All I had to do was to follow the timetable and practise my Spanish with the bus drivers, taxi drivers, hotel employees, guides which I really enjoyed by the way, since I want to improve my Spanish level. My only complaint goes to the weather and particularly to a group of clouds that took away some amazing views of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and Torres del Paine. But I was aware of the Patagonian weather and how unstable and unpredictable it can be so I was prepared for the worst. Afterall no one can control the weather. To be honest we had some glorious, sunny days during our trip.

One last thing I would recommend would be to add one more day in El Chalten to itinerary (take one of the rest days in El Calafate and add it in El Chalten for example) since for me 2 days seemed a too few. I am saying that just in case the weather is not good and maybe somebody wants to try the trails again to get better conditions and views. The town and people of El Chalten were great and I would have loved to stay a bit longer there.

Thanks again for everything.

The seamless organization was our highlight of traveling with Say Hueque.

We were happy with our experience of booking with Say Hueque. Very happy that all our tickets bus, ferry etc were organised too. It saved us a lot of hassles.
I found Say Hueque through Internet research.

The responsiveness and availability of English speaking people to help book tours made us to choose to travel with you. The seamless organization was our highlight of traveling with Say Hueque.

Our favorite hotel is Torres central Refugio. I would recommend booking Paine Grande Refugio instead of camping for the W trek. We were able to upgrade. But if we hadn’t been able to upgrade we would have left our last day by staying in camps which were nice but definitely not as food as the Refugio.

You could not improve on what we experienced.

We first learned about Say Hueque trough web search and decided to travel with you because of your attention to details.

The efficiency of all the logistics, pick ups, hotels and flights was our highlight of travelling with you.

Our favorite hotel is the Higueras in Valparaiso because of it´s location, food, décor and staff.

The full paine rib trip was the best excursion. Connie, our guide at Las Torres was awesome.
