Great view

Great view. Easy to get if you go by regular buses (they leave from city center each hour). To have the best view choose the trail to view point.

I feel like a grinch saying this but I expected more after reading all of the reviews here first!! Yes it's lovely and it's a nice handy walk but I just expected too much. We did the coastal route which takes about 3 hours I think it was. A lot of it was actually inland through foresty areas with the... More

Standing in front of the "Bahia Lapataia" board, it hit me that I was 17,818 Kms from here when in Alaska last year! Both places are spectacular in their natural beauty, though Alaska cannot claim to be the end of the world! We spent a few hours here just absorbing the view and peace and quiet. Bright sunshine added to... More

A picture postcard place with great photo ops, Bahai Lapataia is worth the visit. We went to Laguna Esmerelda in the morning and Bahai Lapataia in the afternoon during a one day stop while on a Celebrity Cruise. We used Linea Regular/Transporte for transportation from Ushuaia--200 pesos, about $20.00 round trip---nice big white vans. If you want this budget-friendly and... More

As many other places in Tierra del Fuego, it has beautiful scenery views. Not very far from Ushuaia. I only wish if we could go near the sea to take pictures. There is a wooden walk path not very long which stays too far from the mountain and from the sea.

We took a half a day tour that takes you to several places to include a brief stop at this stop where everyone takes a picture next to this sign. The other places visited were: el Tren del Fin del Mundo, a brief visit to Tierra del Fuego National Park & a quick visit to see the views at Lago... More

Interesting sights in Tierra del Fuego. The surrounding areas of Ushuaia are beautiful with plenty of sights to explore.

We enjoyed our brief stay here and the catamaran ride in the bay. We saw a number of canoeists and kayaks. Scenery is magnificent.

Within Tierra del Fuego National Park is Bahia Lapitaria. You are surrounded by nature here with beautiful views of the whole bay. You need to hike a bit off the road to get to to the site but it's worth it.

This is a scenic bay with a boardwalk style pier. It is a nice hike from the visitors center or you can take a cab or micro all the way to the bay.
