Lighthouse at the End of the World
Feb 2020
It's just a lighthouse but it is Faro del Fin del Mundo Les Eclaireures -- the Lighthouse at the End of the World. That's the very lighthouse that inspired Jules Verne's novel of the same name. And we did see it as part of a wonderful wildlife excursion on a catamaran. What's not to like?

Nothing more, nothing less

Sure it’s in the middle of the Pacific and Antartic Oceans... but it’s just a simple lighthouse at the Beagle Channel, nothing more, nothing less.

Five Stars for Bragging Rights
Jan 2020
Such a catchy phrase.
Of course, if you are touring in the area, you must have a picture of it.
So, on your voyage through the Beagle Channel by catamaran, the catamaran will stop at this lighthouse and pivot, so everyone on the deck can have photo access to it.
You will also see cormorants, sea lions and penguins on other islands in the Beagle Channel.
Now that you have the iconic picture, you might want to know something about the lighthouse
This lighthouse at the end of the world and the beautiful island on which it lies inspired one of Jules Verne’s lesser known books, "Lighthouse at the End of the World", an adventure story about a tenacious lighthouse keeper and a sadistic band of pirates.The French author started writing the book in 1901 and it was published posthumously in 1905.
The lighthouse is built on the Isla de los Estados island some 29 kilometers from the mainland of Argentina’s southern most province Tierra del Fuego. It is powered by solar power.
The iconic picture, with the mountains in the background, will be lovely, especially on a sunny day.
I was debating how many stars to give Faro Les Eclaireurs
One sees it for only a few minutes in passing.
But, there is only one lighthouse at the end of the world.
If you are lucky enough to be close enough to take a picture of it, you will have done something most of your friends have not.
I give it a five for the bragging rights :).

Interesting history of light & importance of location
Feb 2020 • Friends
We were on an all day tour up the Beagle Channel . Our tour guide described the historic importance of the light house in the past. We then circled the light house up close, giving us a chance for photos from all sides and directions. Interesting and scenic if you can see it as part of a channel tour.

Not much to say

It's just a lighthouse. Worthy of a couple of photos as it's in a pretty spot, with a mountain backdrop, as you go through the Beagle Channel, but other than that just something you sail past on your boat trip

I have a great fascination with lighthouses and to get to pass within metres of this and take lots of photos (yes, selfies too) was a big thrill for me. You may think I'm sad but I don't care!
