Day 1 Tierra del Fuego National Park | End of the World Train
Drive westward from Ushuaia to the Tierra del Fuego National Park (approx. 12 km), a maritime coastal protected area and one of the most frequently visited places around Ushuaia. The first stop is the Southern Railway Station, located in the Pipo River valley between Mount Susana and the Martel Mountain range. The historical renovated train invites you on a journey to the past, learning about how landscape and life conditions were in the past for those prisoners who built the rail in these remote southern latitudes. In the Cañadón del Toro, while crossing the Burnt Bridge, the train makes a strategic stop. Here, at the foot of Cascada La Macarena, you can see the reconstructed indian campside of the ancient inhabitants of the area, the Yamanas.
Disembark from the train and continue driving along the Pipo River to reach Ensenada Bay, from where you get very nice views of Redonda Islands, Hindrance, and the Chilean coast, across the Beagle Channel. Continue on to Roca Lake, where you have some time to relax or go for a little hike in the area of Lapataia River and to the overview of Cerro Condor at the border with Chile. The road continues on to Laguna Verde and Laguna Negra, areas of peat bogs and beaver dams (castoreas), until you reach the end of the park and the National route No. 3 at Lapataia bay.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
