Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After pickup from your hotel in Ushaia, travel to Tierra del Fuego National Park, watching the scenery change as you pass the urban outskirts. Pass beautiful bodies of Patagonian water and soon come upon the majestic Mt. Susana. The old prison, now the site of the End of the World Train, marks the departure point for the vehicle or train option.

End of the World Train Option:
Board the train and enjoy the views as the railway takes you across peat bogs and bridges before making a stop at Macarena Waterfall Station where you learn about the region's indigenous people, the Yamana. Climb to a scenic viewpoint, then continue your sightseeing train journey through the park, ending up at the old sawmill.

Continue your excursion towards glimmering Ensenada Bay, where you see the rocky Redonda and Estorbo Islands, as well as the majestic, snowy Sampaio Mountains. At Roca Lake, meander along the gushing Lapataia River towards Condor Hill, then stop at the otherworldly Green and Black Lagoons. After your adventure has finished, you'll be dropped back at your hotel in Ushaia.

Vehicle Option:

After spending time in the now-defunct prison turned End of the World Train Station, drive through the scenic valley towards Ensenada Bay. View the Sampaio Mountains and the Redonda and Estorbo Islands. Your next stop is Roca Lake and a journey on foot along the Lapataia River towards Condor Hill. After moving on to see the Green Lagoon and Black Lagoon, visit a growing peat bog. When your excursion is over, you'll be returned to your Ushaia hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego
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 Lagoon Vehicle 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. 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 Lagoon, as well as large-growing peat bog.

Scenery was nice - but not spectacular. The lines of tour buses going to the same places was endless.

Train, and "end of earth" stop were great

Most importantly, the tour was actually 8:15-1:45ish, which made it very tight getting back on our cruise ship in time. Also, confusing as to time we were being picked up. Viator is not the trip operator, and its difficult to get operator to respond. Actual tour itself was nice. Train ride fun.

End of The World.

Train ride is fun. There is an audio tape that plays whilst you travel the short line. Gives an extensive history of the train, prison and the settlement of the area. our guide spoke in Spanish and English. She was well informed and brought numerous insight about the park and it’s inhabitants.

The trip was very enjoyable and I liked the guide. However, I was quite disappointed how it was managed. I called the local agent(the number you provided) two days prior to confirm the hotel pickup. However non one came at 8:00am and I asked the hotel people to help me call the local agent(at Ushuaia) and we were told that they thought that I was joining a tour on 12/10. Clearly there is miscommunication between your local agent(probably in Buenos Aires) and Ushuaia company. Finally they sent someone and met me at 8:30. We had five people in the group and everyone spoke Spanish. Though the guide could speak English but clearly this is not an English-spoken group. I was quite disappointed how it was managed.

The train was small, the guide only translated 20% of the tour into English. Would skip and grab a cab to hike the park on our own if we had to do it again.

Enjoyable outing, although hotel failed to pass on later pick-up message. Good informative guide on coach. Train bit touristy as expected, but well-organised and good on-board commentary. Later guided walk and tour to lakes added to experience and knowledge of the region.
