Exclusive "End of the World" Drive
Sale Price: $120.00
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.

Small group in van, so we were able to stop and view any animals seen along the way. Guide and driver very professional.

EXCELLENT location of bus and guide right outside the ship. Good thing because it was very cold and rainy that day. Bus and Guide were excellent.

We were expecting to be on a small coach with other people, but in fact we were met by a private car (very comfortable and spotlessly clean SUV) with driver and guide for just the two of us. As we disembarked we found the guider waiting at the bottom of the gangplank with the car just a few feet away. What service! Both driver and guide spoke excellent English. We explored the park by car with stops where we could walk. The scenery is breathtaking and the guide was very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna, as well as the history and politics of the park. The big advantage of this private tour was that we got there before the tour buses from the ship and had the incredible scenery all to ourselves. . On the way back we stopped at the park's tourist centre for coffee and a snack. They got us back to the ship in plenty of time . A great tour which we would recommend to anyone.
