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.

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.

Gorgeous views at the end of an easy hike. I think there are guided tours here, but we took a bus (the stop is close to the tourist info centre and next to a gas station) for 200 pesos a head round trip. There are buses leaving to the park every hour, but only return on a set schedule -... More

We took a van from the station in Av. Maipu (Estacion Linea Regular, AR$200 per person) and asked to leave in the last station of the National Park, very close to Bahia Lapataia. Just a few minutes in an easy track later and we were surrounded by this wonderful nature, ocean (channel), mountains and forest, it's really beautiful!!

This bay is at the end of the Pan-American Hwy in Tierra del Fuego National Park. It's only 30 min west from Ushuaia. We rented a car which was great because we could stop for photos anywhere we wanted and there were several great photo opps......After you park at the end of the road, there are a few trails....we only...

If you are going to travel all the way to Ushuaia, you might as well see the beautiful scenery. It does not get much better than this. There are lots of beautiful spots to see and this is one of them. Simple as that. There are trails to walk and the views are unbelievable.
