The road stretches out to virtually no where. At the parking spot you can go a few hundred meters out on a gangway to a viewpoint where only wast wilderness can be seen.

Its the end of the Ruta Nacional 3, one of longest roads of Argentina. And it finishes in a very beatiful lake. Pretty nice especially for those who drove all the way!

I loved being here, the notion of being at the end of a road, a proper end of a road that traverses the whole of a continent. I was so lucky with the weather when I visited.

The end of the PanAmerican Highway ends ot Bahia Lapataia. It is about 8 kilometers from the visitor center. And the turn around you can walk about 5 minutes to the lake overlook. A nice stop.

The bay itself is great to look at from the viewpoint/mirador in Tierra Feugo national park plus if you do the coat hike in the national park you walk along the bay for super awesome views. It does get a little windy in the evenings and be prepared for rain any time.

We bought some post cards here and had them stamped. It was very nice and the views were lovely. There are some trails to walk but it was raining when we were there so we didn't do that.
