What our customers think

This trip eclipsed the majesty of the Torres Del Paine. The highlight was undoubtedly our stay overnight at Los Condores and the Puntiagudo trek. The hosts were great and we thought their farm was a very special/unique place to stay. The trek was made even more memorable because of our guide. All the locals we met were also delightful.
