About the weather

The weather in Ushuaia can change by the minute! Please be ready for all types of weather and note that our itinerary may change due to the conditions.

Trip Overview

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. In our comfortable van, we’ll head west out of town along National Road 3 for around 11 kilometers (around 6.5 miles). As we drive, we’ll glimpse dazzling views of the Ushuaia Bay and the Beagle Channel. Along the way, your naturalist guide will provide descriptions of the natural history of the area. After entering Tierra Del Fuego National Park, we will deviate from our course for a stop at the Bahí Ensenada. Depending on the weather, all passengers may want to get out of the vehicle and snap a photo of the view from the Bay. Vistas encompass the Beagle Channel and Isla Redonda.

Back in the warm van, we resume our course along National Road 3. This section of our journey takes us through a dense native forest of legua, ñira, and cherry trees. Crossing a bridge over the Rio Lapataia, we’ll arrive at a picturesque section of the park. Depending on the feeling of the group, the weather, and the foot traffic in the park, our expert guide will choose to lead us on a number of different walks. These are all easy-going trails and include, but are not limited to, Paseo de la Isla, Leguna Negra, and Mirador Lapataia.

After immersing ourselves in the wild forests and Patagonia’s mountains, we’ll pile back into the van to head out to the end of the world. The winding, final stretch of National Road 3 ends at Lapataia Bay. Here we’ll find a big sign indicating the end of the road and effectively the end of the world. In a short, manageable walk from the end of the road, we’ll arrive at the coast of the Bay. You won’t want to have left your camera behind for this view! Here we may spot a variety of water birds, including ducks, cauquenes, which are South American geese, chorlos, and killdeer.

Apart from abundant flora and fauna, we may also have the opportunity to appreciate some Yamana remains, along our way. The Yamana were the area’s first inhabitants, who lived on this island long before the arrival of Europeans in the Americas. In many places throughout the Park, their remnants are found. These include accumulated shell pieces, animal remains, which were part of their diet, and Yamana utensils. Our guide will help us to contextualize these relics with the ancient community that left them behind.

Want More Tierra Del Fuego Nature Immersion?

Extend your Tierra Del Fuego experience by adding on the Tren Del Fin Del Mundo,(opens in a new tab) which can be incorporated into your National Park Tour. The main train station is located outside the National Park. If you so choose, you may purchase train tickets any time in advance and we will incorporate it into your Tierra Del Fuego National Park experience setting up the perfect schedule for you and your group.

Rather than driving to the park, the 1-hour train ride travels along the original tracks used to enter this natural area by the first settlers of the region. Along the way, a guide will explain Ushuaia’s unique history. Located on an isolated island in the south, the city was founded around a penitentiary. At one time, this southerly destination was a banishing point for murders and political rivals. Prisoners of the penitentiary used to take this train’s itinerary to collect materials and work in the forest.
