About this Ushuaia tour
You have to go to the ends of the earth to see beauty like this, because there's nothing anywhere in the world quite like Tierra del Fuego National Park.
As far back as 10,000 years ago, the Yamana people settled in this area, and what you'll see today is not much different from what they saw – an unspoiled and constantly changing landscape with an abundance of wildlife and a climate far more temperate than you might expect less than 700 miles from the tip of Antarctica. There's even a Black Lagoon, although no creatures have been sighted there.
The park is home to forests of Antarctic beech, lenga beech and coihue; to the serene waters of Lapataia Bay and Lake Roca, and to a menagerie of wildlife that includes the guanaco, the Andean fox, the kelps goose and the Andean condor. So bring your binoculars.
There's history here, too.
The southern shoreline of Tierra del Fuego Park includes the Beagle Channel, named after the British ship that sailed these waters in 1833 with a young explorer and naturalist named Charles Darwin.
All in all, this is far more than a sightseeing expedition; this is a rare opportunity to experience nature in all its glory, and to be able to tell people you went to the ends of the earth to do it.
The lands in and around Tierra del Fuego were in dispute between Argentina and Chile on and off from 1840 to 1978, when the two countries almost went to war. A Vatican-sponsored 1985 treaty allowed a compromise that split one beautiful lake between the two countries. It's called Lake Roca in Argentina, after former president Julio Roca, and Lake Errazuriz in Chile, after former Chilean president Federico Errazuriz.
