Exclusive "End of the World" Drive
Exclusive "End of the World" Drive
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.

The beauty of this area is indeed phenomenal. We were met timely by our tour operator. The group was smaller than the groups that purchased excursion directly from the cruise line and our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, spoke acceptable English and also switched to Spanish for those in our group that required. We had multiple stops and fabulous locations. Just beware that every venue is extremely crowded with other groups. When large cruise ships and even multiple cruise ships hit the port, it puts a huge strain on local resources and venues.

The Tolkeyen Patagonia tour bus waited at the Pier on time. The drive was very good and we have a good weather all through the tour to the National Park. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and the driver did his job well and safely. We wish the tour can be little longer and not rush.

Thank you for asking. The stops were all great. The guide was difficult to understand. The driver was great, but since we were driving on a dirt road, on the return to the ship there was lots of dust that filled the bus. Maybe if he could have driven slower and allowed more space between the car in front some of the dust could have been avoided. I very much appreciate them meeting us at the ship even though the ship had changed its arrival day! They met us on time and were very helpful.

What I thought might be a ho-hum tour turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. Great sights to see and a wonderful guide. Highly Recommended.
