El Tren del Fin del Mundo

transport / Rail

Lonely Planet review

The most touristy and, beyond jogging, the slowest way to the park, El Tren del Fin de Mundo originally carted prisoners to work camps. It departs (sans convicts) from the EstaciĆ³n del Fin de Mundo, 8km west of Ushuaia, three or four times daily in summer and once or twice daily in winter. The one-hour, scenic narrow-gauge train ride comes with historical explanations in English and Spanish. Reserve in January and February, when cruise-ship tours take over. If you are not a train fanatic, take it one way and return via minibus.
