No need to take a tour or have a car to Tierra del Fuego National Park. Take a bus that is really like an oversize van (we took the company "Sol") from the bus area (Juana Fadul and Maipu Avenue) in Ushuaia. Takes nearly an hour one way. We left at 9 am Christmas Day and returned with the 3 pm return bus. A wonderful time.
Cost for the bus/van is 100 ARS or US$20 round trip per person.
Cost for the National Park is 85 ARS per person; no US$ accepted. You will get a trail map at time of entry.
The bus has designated drop off/pick-up points and times. A popular trail starts at the Pier and is 8 km of coastal and forest trail. We went to the end of Rt. 3 of the Pan American Highway where there is a famous sign and short boardwalk to the end. From there we took many hikes seeing peatbogs, beaver lodges and destruction by them, Andes of Chile, Lapataia Bay, small Black Lake, Green Lake, and then walked to Laco (Lake) Roco. Just before getting there is the Alakush Visitor Center--a big, new-looking building on the right side of the road opposite Lapatala River before Laco Roco. In this Visitor Center is a large cafeteria, observation tower overlooking the River, very worthwhile exhibit of the original natives: the Yamanas, good geology/geography/anthropology exhibits about the area, bathrooms, and here you can have your passport stamped from the end of the world by a friendly limited-English speaking information person. Further up the road at Laco Roco is a large picnic area as well as a coffeehouse. Here is also a bus pick-up point.
