Tierra del Fuego National Park is a must-see sight in Argentina. While the city Ushuaia is unabashedly touristy. However, right outside the city, there is an abundance of beautiful scenery. The area is truly the end of the earth, the last southern city before hitting Antartica. This is a perfect day trip outside of Ushuaia. Travelers can hike in Tierra del Fuego National Park, which was created in 1960. The park borders Lago Fagnano and Beagle Channel on the southern edge. Most of day can be spent wandering around the forests and looking at the lakes. There are two types of trees.


The southernmost part of the park is Lapataia Bay, which offers a breathtaking view of mountain peaks and valleys. Glaciers crest up over the water, mammoth and alluring.  On any day visitors can see black-eyed albatross, steam duck and otters. There are also guanaco, red fox and the Canadian beaver.

Only three percent of the entire park is the recreation purposes. However, this park offers many different adventure and sports opportunities, like horseback riding, mountain biking, trekking and hiking .   Travelers should be aware that there are strict rules within the park against hunting wildlife.
