Enjoy the fuegian forest and the natural environment in its pure state.
Tierra del Fuego National Park
is the southernmost and one of the most beautiful in the world. This is a protected area of the sub Antarctic forest where you can spot local flora and fauna.
It is located on Ushuaia southwest and its access is by the mythic southern area of route N° 3 together with End of the World Train.
Our expedition begins in Ushuaia. On our way to the park, we’ll make a quick stop around the Equestrian Center. From this spot we’ll be able to enjoy great panoramic views of the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia’s peninsula and the Bridges, Willie and Les Éclaireurs archipelagoes.
We continue on Route N 3, across Río Pipo towards Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino
train station, commonly known as the End of the World Train. If you wish to continue by train, you can go ahead and get on board and reunite with the rest of the group at the end of the train rails inside the National Park.
We’ll get inside the park through Ensenada Bay so we can descend to the coast of the Beagle Channel
and see Redonda and Estorbo Islands.
We’ll get back on the road surrounded by huge leech trees and peat bog woods until we reach Acigami Lake
(former Roca). This is a glacier lake. It has a 5.50 Km² surface framed by beautiful mountains. It is possible to spot local birds species and take the best pictures at the End of the World. This is without doubt, an unforgettable landscape.
We’ll stop at the toilets’ service area to take a 30 min brake.
The last part of the excursion takes us to Lapataia Bay
where we’ll cross an archipelago with cormorants and peat bog where we’ll be able to watch beavers’ dams.
Lapataia Bay is a beautiful place with plenty of historical content where you’ll find traces of the first inhabitants in the region. We’ll go on hiking on the coast with enough time to walk on the footbridge. From this point you’ll be able to get unique shots and enjoy nature in its pure state experiencing the real End of the World.
We’ll head back to National Route N°3 towards the city of Ushuaia.
