Campo Cielo Grande, or Big Sky/Heaven Countryside, is exactly that. The property sits on 50 acres of pristine habitat that borders Lago Rosario. The luxury tents open up to expansive views of the lake and the impressive Cerro Colorado. Being politely awakened with steamy hot coffee was a nice surprise, which was then followed by a very complete breakfast in the large cooktent. Both Trey and Shelby are experts of the area and were able to identify different birds, plants, trees, and distant mountain peaks. The best part about our stay was the flexibility of our excursions -- fishing, trekking, horseback riding, guided tours, and rafting. Their enthusiasm and bottomless energy was contagious, especially when my frustration mounted at my inability to throw a good cast. Fortunately, Trey's patience allowed me to throw a line with some degree of fluidity. Our favorite tour was a rafting/fishing experience down the Rio Corcovado, where we were able to do class 2-3 rapids and fish in the slower rapids in between. This was remarkable in that other tour companies were just rafting; we couldn't help but notice their envious eyes as we fished in Trey's 'Cadillac' raft as they floated by shivering.
After a full day of fishing, hiking, or touring, we could always count on a hardy meal back in camp that was prepared by their efficient crew. Our favorite was the lamb ragu, as well as different Argentine asado's they did on the open fire.
Bottom line: This is an authentic outdoor experience in the rugged Patagonia wilderness, but will all the comforts of home - and then some! Both Trey and Shelby were professionals and well qualified at what they did, but more importantly, they made it very, very fun. If you plan on coming to this part of the world, this is definitely the place to stay.
