Ushuaia: Private Tour Tierra del Fuego National Park

1. Ushuaia: Private Tour Tierra del Fuego National Park

Start the day with the pick-up from your hotel in Ushuaia. Once in the car, you´ll head west in the direction of the National Park. While you leave Ushuaia city, you´ll start to have nice views of the Beagle Channel and the Andes Mountain Range. After 20 minutes, you´ll be driving along the historical and beautiful Pipo River Valley, where the prisoners from the Old Penal Colony of Ushuaia were harvesting wood for over 50 years with the aid of a narrow gauge train. At only 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Ushuaia, you´ll find the famous train "The End of the World", which is a reconstruction of the old train of the prison and were you´ll spend some time discovering this wonderful attraction. Then it will be time to go inside the park either by car or by train (one hour ride). Once in the national park, you´ll continue west for about 25 minutes to reach its end at the coast of Lapataia Bay. This gorgeous bay of the Beagle Channel has a big symbolic value because the end of the route 3 is also the southern end of the Pan-American Highway. After spending some time walking and discovering the coast of the bay and taking pictures, there´s no other choice but to start driving in the other direction. Departing from the end of the Pan-American Highway, you´ll go to visit the stunning Roca Lake, which was carved and formed by the action of glaciers for over 10,000 years. After enjoying a cup of tea or coffee with the great scenario this lake offers, you´ll start heading east on the route 3, getting closer to the city. But before leaving the park, you´ll reach the coast of the Beagle Channel again to visit Zaratiegui Bay this time. This gorgeous bay with a magnificent landscape holds a special sub Antarctic evergreen forest as well as the typical "End of the World" post office. In this cozy and traditional post office you will be able to stamp your passport with special stamps and also send postcards from the furthermost point of America to anywhere in the world. From here, you´ll return to Ushuaia which lays 20 minutes driving from this bay.

Ushuaia: Esmeralda Lagoon Hiking Tour with Dinner and Drinks

2. Ushuaia: Esmeralda Lagoon Hiking Tour with Dinner and Drinks

This is the perfect tour for those who love walking and being outdoors. Departing at 2:30 PM, transfer to the Valle de Tierra Mayor, the starting point for this medium intensity walk to visit the Emerald Lagoon. The difficulty is defined by the type of terrain and not by the slope.  This route will take you through a forest and then through a peat zone, which can be very wet. The lagoon is incredibly beautiful and so are the mountains that surround it. After you return from the 4-hour walk to the lagoon, enjoy a delicious Patagonian dinner with red wine in a wooden cottage that overlooks the Valle de Tierra Mayor.
