Great place to visit in Tierra Del Fuego. Its the end of the highway that starts all the way up in Alaska and really feels like the end of the world being the southernmost point you can reach by road.

Bahia Lapataia is a great place for a half hour walk when the weather is nice. We were there twice in complete different kind of weathers and the impressions were totally opposite each time. Being identified as the "end of the world", the location is great for photo. The boardwalk does provide the natural trial and surrounding to solidify its... More

If you come to Ushuaia, you must visit the lakes, which includes de Lapataia bay. There, if you're lucky, you'll get to see zorros (foxes), woodpeckers or even beavers. You'll learn about this delicate ecosystem and how the introduction of an alien species can create a huge problem, like what happened with the British and their beavers :) The only... More

Lovely area leading through the brush to the wooden walkways taking you out to view the area above and around. Trails jetted off in both directions to get a closer more personal view after trekking a meager distance to witness the Panoramic Vistas. Beware though some of the routes might not be well defined. Wildlife was evident throughout the area... More

Worth the visit when you are there. Several hours at minimum. No facilities as I can remember. Bring water too.

It deserves a visit if you are going to Ushuaia, probably best if it isn t snowing - It s beautiful anyway, but you can t see the mountains behind the lake.

If the weather is good, it is a wonderful hiking experience. Regardless of the weather the scenery is outstanding, even in the rain.
