At the bottom of the world, in the famous Patagonia, there were groups of prisoners working to build a small town, in the area that was known locally as the Argentinean Siberia. Their main job was to get wood in the middle of the forest under extreme wether conditions. During this tour we will learn about the train they used to go to the woods and we will visit the more modern train station, as we enjoy views of the surrounding mountains. If you are interested in both history and nature this tour is for you!

I loved this, even though we didn't go on the train itself we got a beautiful snowy panorama and history of how the railway started (plus we met Barbara's husband). Friendly and welcoming tour
