On the shores of the Beagle Channel and surrounded by mountains, this truly unforgettable tour will begin with a scenic drive through Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city and also known as the"Port at the End of the World." This, then, is your Exclusive "End of the World" Drive Tour.
You will drive towards Tierra del Fuego National Park, the first shoreline national park to be established in Argentina. Along the way, you will make a stop near the Centro Hipico (Riding Club), where you will enjoy excellent panoramic views of the Beagle Channel, the Ushuaia peninsula, and several bridges and islands.
The Tierra del Fuego National Park features dramatic scenery, with waterfalls, forests, mountains, and glaciers, and its 240 square miles include parts of the Fagnano and Roca lakes.
View the splendid scenery of Tierra del Fuego Island with lakes, rivers, vegetation, and peat bogs. Parts of the forest were damaged by fires long ago and are almost ghost-like today, with stark, pale-gray trunks standing in contrast against the backdrop of lush green vegetation.
Through a path surrounded by Lenga forests and peats, you will reach Lake Roca, a glacial lake, framed by mountains and forests, where you will have the chance to see different native birds.
The final stop marks one of the world's most unique and unforgettable milestones: the end of the world! Lapatia Bay is the last stop on the Pan-American Highway, an astounding marvel of civil engineering that begins in Alaska and stretches nearly 12,000 miles across two continents. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the highway as the world's longest "motorable road."
Throughout the tour, an experienced guide will explain the unique flora and fauna of this remote part of the world.

We had a great tour in Ushuaia. The tour guide was there early waiting for us and the bus was clean and comfortable. We spent the day touring with a very informative tour guide. Very enjoyable and definitely would do it again!

Excellent tour - best of the ten tours we did in South America. We were unable to do the train & bus tour so picked this one. Glad we did not get the train tour as it only goes a few kilometres. We saw everything from the bus at a fraction of the cost of the train/bus tour.
Great tour. Driver and guide were superb. Well worth doing.

Sofia, our guide, met us right next to our cruise ship. We had a short tour around the town of Ushuaia before heading out to the Southern Fuegian Railway, then on to the Tierra del Fuego National Park and the literal "End of the World". A once in a lifetime experience!
