Tour description provided by Viator

Escape from Ushuaia and discover Tierra del Fuego, the world's southernmost national park. Prepare to be mesmerized by breathtaking natural wonders, Patagonian lakes and charming scenery. Explore Tierra del Fuego in a vehicle, or discover it by train -- either option is sure to leave an impression on you!

Only 7 miles (11 km) outside of Ushuaia lies Tierra del Fuego, a stunning national park that is truly located at the end of the world – it’s the southernmost national park on the planet. Departing Ushuaia, you'll immediately begin to see a change in scenery as you drive past picturesque Patagonian lakes, lagoons and rivers, bodies of water that all exit through the famous Beagle Channel. Passing Mt Susana, you'll arrive at the old prison, now the site of the Southern Fuegian Railway (also known as the End of the World Train). Here, the tour is divided into two groups, depending on which options participants select.End Of the World Train Option:If you choose the train ride option, you’ll leave the station and travel along the route of the old railway, which once held prisoners who chopped timber from the forest and transported it to the city in order to construct buildings and provide warmth. Along the way, you'll cross bridges and peat bogs. The train makes a brief stop at Macarena Waterfall (Cascada de la Macarena) Station, where you'll learn about the indigenous Yamana People and climb to a viewpoint before continuing on through the Tierra del Fuego National Park. Ride through the park, ending your journey at the location where an old Lombardich Sawmill once processed timber.Then, continue through the valley towards Ensenada Bay, taking in the majestic beauty of the Redonda and Estorbo Islands as they juxtapose the snow-white Sampaio Mountains. You'll see Roca Lake and walk along the Lapataia River heading towards Condor Hill. Next, you'll visit the Green Lagoon and the Black LagoonVehicle Option:After visiting the prison, you'll continue through the valley towards Ensenada Bay, taking in the majestic beauty of the Redonda and Estorbo Islands as they juxtapose the snow-white Sampaio Mountains.
