This is the Story behind EXCURSIONS IN USHUAIA

Hello beautiful people

This is Joaquín Fava Aguiar, founder of the travel agency EXCURSIONES EN USHUAIA.

I am very proud that people like you come on vacation to the place where I chose to live. For me, what I do is not a job: it is MY PASSION.

But it wasn't always like that, my luck changed a long time ago.

My love affair with Ushuaia began 19 years ago.

Buenos Aires, February 2004

A friend of mine had a travel company, and I told him about my desire to visit Ushuaia. Following his advice, I planned to stay only three days. The truth is that my friend barely knew how to pronounce the name of the city well and had no idea how many days to recommend so that I wouldn't miss anything.

I was determined. I packed my bags, and I came.

I was fascinated. Those 3 days flew by, and I hardly had time to enjoy them.

Last night, something wouldn't let me sleep.

 

A thousand images passed through my head. People getting off the cruise ships. The amazing landscapes of that corner of the earth. The sea. The forest. The mountain. Ushuaia seems straight out of a dream.

And yet, the tourist service at that time was not up to par. There was a lot to improve.

La gastronomía no abría sus puertas hasta las 11 de la mañana - en realidad, sólo estaban preparando la cocina para el almuerzo-. Sólo podías desayunar si estabajas alojado en algun hotel de 4 o 5 estrellas.

The hotels had a basic, but very familiar, friendly and predisposed attention. 

Here was a great opportunity. I started to dream big.

While I spent those 3 days in Ushuaia, I put together the outline of a business plan.

I decided to look for land to build a high-end lodge complex, inspired by the architecture of the Swiss alpine huts. This is how we created FINISTERRIS LODGEThe first private spa complex in the world.

Each cabin had its own private spa, private chef service and 24-hour personalized attention.

Of course, that wasn't for everyone. Many people wanted access to this level of service, but could not afford it. That's how in 2009 I detected another new great opportunity and founded EXCURSIONS IN USHUAIA.

We started selling excursions OnLine. Little by little we managed to sell our own services, with our own vehicles, guides and even commercial offices.
