Today we spent the day in the Tierra Del Fuego National Park having a look around and doing some hiking.
Tierra del Fuego National Park is a national park on the Argentine part of the island of Tierra del Fuego, within Tierra del Fuego Province. Established on October 15, 1960 it was the first shoreline national park to be established in Argentina.
It is 630 km2 and the Senda Costera (Coastal Path), connects Ensenada Bay to Lapataia Bay on Lake Roca. There are forests of Antarctic beech and Coihue in the lower elevations of the park.
The southernmost national park in the world stretches 60 km north from the Beagle Channel along the Chilean border. It is also the southern terminus of the Pan-American Highway which starts in Alaska.
Our first stop was at the End of the World Train Station where the train heads in to the national park. We just had a quick stop to see the train depart.
We then headed in to the National Park.
Some of the sights we saw along the way were:
Upon return to Ushuaia we went out for a lovely seafood dinner.
