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.

This location has a good view of the lake and opens to some good hikes. The wooden structure itself is nothing special, just marks the end location of Pan-American Highway, which is sort of a legend itself than a clear-defined highway. It is beautiful to stop and take a rest...

Good views in the middle of the nature, quite place and good organization of the park stuff. The riba costera walking is a little bit heavy but possible to do! Nice place to stay all day!

Of course if you are travelling to Ushuaia, specially if by car, you will want to go and take a photo at the end of Route National 3. After being on the road for almost 10 days driving from Brazil all way down, was a pleasure to visit this place.

Hiking there is the best way to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. There are some very easy hikes around the bay and stunning - especially when the sun is out. Gorgeous clear water and lovely coves abound.
