Tierra del Fuego

hike through epic landscapes of southernmost tip of South America

Dramatically located at the southernmost tip of South America, it’s easy to be enchanted by Tierra del Fuego. Here you can walk amongst penguins, hike through epic landscapes and follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin by sailing across the Beagle Channel.

Shared by Argentina and Chile and separated by the Strait of Magellan, the Tierra del Fuego archipelago encompasses some of Patagonia’s most captivating scenery including mighty glaciers, shimmering lakes, rich forests and snow-capped Andean mountains.

The tourist hub of Tierra del Fuego is the colourful city of Ushuaia, the world’s most southerly city and the jumping off point for most journeys into the icy wilderness of Antarctica. Take the opportunity to cruise the waters of the Beagle Channel, famously sailed by Charles Darwin, to discover the wonderful wildlife – sea lions, cormorants and penguins – that fascinated early explorers and naturalists.

The Tierra del Fuego National Park is a magical natural playground packed with ancient forests, deep gorges, twisting rivers and an abundance of wildlife and birds. Uncover the parks hidden wonders by canoeing, kayaking and trekking, all the while keeping an eye out for the mighty albatross.

Don’t miss a ride on the historic Southern Fuegian Railway, otherwise known as the “Train of the End of the World”, a scenic route where you can enjoy watching the park’s ever changing landscape through large carriage windows.
