    The W trek and Mt. Fitz Roy were the best. I never thought that I would ever have a chance to explore that part of the world. Climbing the Vilaricca Volcano is also something that I can say that got so many admirers. From whitewater rafting to wildlife... Read more

    Wouldn't recommend them for South America. Guides are not helpful, they are only there to pay for lodging and sell extra options. Trip kitty was more expensive then initially expected. Management of food and tasks we're not always handled accordingly.... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Do you arrange airport transfers?

    An arrival transfer in Santiago is unfortunately not available, but Dragoman has advised us that taxis are very easy to come by from the airport. There is a taxi desk right inside the Santiago airport where they can arrange a taxi for you from there, so you don't have to hail a random car from the street.

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego between Santiago and Ushuaia (from Santiago to Ushuaia) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.
