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.

This was the destination for a motorcycle trip that started in Las Vegas Nevada. It took 2 months and quite a few unique experiences to get there but I got to see some very beautiful countriyside along the way and neet some wonderful people.

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.

A very strange feeling! Route 3 ends and home is over 3,000 km away! The forest is different from others. Mountains ans views are amazing!

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.
