Tierra del Fuego National Park

Exploring the Natural Treasures of Tierra del Fuego

If you're looking to connect with nature and the history of the southernmost city in the world, Tierra del Fuego National Park is the ideal place to do so.

The park protects 68,909 hectares and is the only one in the Argentine Republic that combines marine, forest, and mountain environments. Additionally, it features lakes, valleys, and extensive peat bogs. The magnificent forests are dominated by lengas and guindos. All these environments form a unique setting with the purest air one can breathe.

This place encapsulates the history of the Yámanas, the first inhabitants of these lands. By paying attention, you can discover mounds of mussel shells, remnants of their food known as "shell middens" or "concheros" (archaeological sites), reminding us that these lands have been inhabited for more than 10,000 years.

Here, you will discover diverse and vibrant landscapes, home to birds such as the picturesque Magellanic goose, the steamer duck, or the black-browed albatross. While exploring the trails, it is common to encounter gray and red foxes and to hear the rhythmic tapping of a woodpecker.

Tours in Tierra del Fuego National Park

There are many ways to find out the national park. Get to know them!

There are options to suit all tastes, from the welcoming forest that envelops you with the scent of lenga trees, to the invigorating cold waters of the Beagle Channel; from mountain trails to camping areas for relaxation by the river. The trails vary in difficulty and are clearly marked. You can explore them independently or join guided excursions led by experienced guides. These guided tours can include rowing activities on one of the main rivers in the National Park: Lapataia River.

Lapataia Bay is situated within the park. The name originates from the Yámana language and translates to "the forest bay". Aside from its picturesque beauty, Lapataia marks the end of National Route 3 (also known as the Pan-American Highway). Here, you'll find the iconic sign indicating the 3,063 kilometers separating it from Argentina's capital, Buenos Aires. Along a circuit of footbridges, you can wander and savor the fresh sea breeze mingled with the forest.

An enjoyable way to explore a small section of the park is by taking the famous End of the World Train. If you book the excursion through an agency, you can travel a few kilometers aboard the charming train. Upon reaching the final station located within the National Park, knowledgeable guides await to unveil the wonders of this place.

Undoubtedly, visiting the National Park is an essential part of your journey to the end of the world.
