Ushuaia Shore Excursion: Private Tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park
You'll immediately begin to see a change in scenery as you drive past picturesque Patagonian lakes, lagoons and rivers -- bodies of water that all exit through the famous Beagle Channel. Passing Mt Susana, you'll arrive at the old prison, now the site of the Southern Fuegian Railway (also known as the End of the World Train).
Here, you have the option to enjoy a train ride (own expense), which will take you along the route of the old railway that once held prisoners who chopped timber from the forest and transported it to the city. Admire the glacial scenery filled with beautiful valleys, lakes, mountains and Ensenada Bay, punctuated by Isla Redonda.
Back in your vehicle, cross the Lapataia River bridge and choose from several different low-impact hiking trails. Your guide can take you on a scenic hike to places such as Laguna Negra, Laguna Verde and Mirador Lapataia. Along the way, keep an eye out for birds, as these are great bird-watching spots.
Continue driving until you reach Lapataia Bay, where you can take a short hike along the canal. Among the rocks, you’ll see abundant sea mussels, limpets and snails, as well as various traces of the people who once inhabited this area thousands of years ago.
After your tour, you’ll be taken back to the Ushuaia port.

Our tour guide was fantastic. This guy had a wealth of information and was keen on sharing it. Tierra del Fuego National Park is breathtaking. Try to avoid the bus loads of people by taking a few of the small trails where cars can't go. I do think that next time we would opt for adding an activity to our tour, as in kayaking. The town of Ushuaia itself was cute, but did not offer much. I do wish we had more time to explore the museums.
Our guide, Marcelo, was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the area as well as the history of Argentina. He took us to all of the lookout points in the park and did not rush us at all. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a highlight tour for us. We were picked up on time from the port. The guide had a comfortable vehicle to ride to the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The guide was very knowledgable about the history, culture, and the biology of the area. He shared his knowledge in an informative and interesting manner. We love to take pictures and he was very willing to stop at scenic areas and help us with our photographs. We would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was very engaged and informative, she provided a wonderful day for us!!!
Our guide, Andreas, was very knowledgable and his love of the area came through in our conversations. We enjoyed the many different areas we were able to see during the tour.
