We work with small groups of up to 18 passengers in a familiar and friendly environment with the company of professional Spanish and English speaking guides.<br>The excursions are carried out with the "KAMS and" TELIENKA "yachts, twin vessels of 15 meters in length, which due to their dimensions allow a maximum approach to the islands allowing preferential sightings.<br>During our tour we visit Isla Alicia, Isla de Pájaros and Isla de Lobos, where we make very close sightings of the fauna of the Beagle Channel. We know the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse built in 1919, a true emblem of the City of Ushuaia. At the end, we disembark at Bridges Island to walk a path of interpretation of flora and birds, telling the story of the Yámanas aborigines. Here are the largest Yámana anthropogenic shells in the region.<br>It also has a panoramic point from where we can observe the magnificence of the Beagle Channel with the City of Ushuaia in the distance.

We were skiing in late September and it was great! It was low season, super cheap, lot of snow and no queues! We were surprised because it’s quite big. The Italian and French national teams were training there.

Visited Cerro Castor on a Friday and a Saturday ( August 9 & 10 ). On Friday, we were so fortunate that it was clear. We got to see some spectacular views of the nearby jagged snow-covered Andes. These are some of the most beautiful views in the world, and it is a tragedy if you go on a day when you can't experience this spectacular natural beauty. Took some incredible pictures from the top of the Del Filo Quad chairlift. There is a very nice groomed red difficulty run (between black and blue difficulty for U.S. skiers) from the top of the Del Filo chair. The highest chair, their Las Piedras quad chair was closed due to wind on both days of our visit. There are probably equally spectacular views from this chair, which is approximately 613 feet higher than the Del Filo Quad chair. The overall vertical drop is about 2,828 feet, and there are 5 quad chairlifts, and about a half dozen surface lifts. They advertise a terrain park but despite great snow conditions and a lot of snow on all the slopes, it was not open. The slopes are marked extremely well with slope name signage. One of the really outstanding aspects of this resort is the wide selection of restaurants in an incredible 8 locations at the resort. Their website says that one of these restaurants serves dinner, but we were informed that this was for lodging guests only. They have about 15 cabins on-site. We enjoyed their food both days we were there, and they put their guests through very quickly. They also offered at least a couple venues with table service and a more up-scale menu, but my family very much enjoyed their excellent home-made cafeteria options. They had a high-tech RFID ticket system that included automatic scanning gates, that worked very well. However none of the quad lifts had four gates, and this contributed to sort of an ongoing mess at the loading areas, since no additional cueing lanes were set up and no one on staff was organizing lift line cues. There was just one big mass of people in one big line trying to get through fewer turnstyles than their were seats on the chair. Operating with two or three gates just didn't do justice to the millions of dollars that have been spent on excellent facilities at this resort. This is their 20th year, but looking at their facilities, you might think it was their first season. Everything seemed very new and has been designed and constructed in a first class + fashion. Very impressive facilities from A to Z. It is hard to find their ticket pricing online, so I have attached an image of their ticket pricing. You will notice they have one set of prices for Argentine residents and a higher set of prices for tourists ( everyone else ). This is a world-class facility and was the most impressive business we saw during our two weeks in South America. Be sure and go on a clear day when you can see the spectacular scenery, and when at least the Del Filo lift is operating!!

This is the tall peak off in the distance or somewhere to see if you take an excursion out of town to see the country.
