This park, created in 1960, is located 12 km from downtown Ushuaia and is the southernmost protected natural area in the Argentine Republic, covering 63,000 hectares. You can get there through National Route 3 to the west of the City of Ushuaia.
The park forms part of the Andean-Patagonian system of protected natural areas, bordering with Chile on the west. It is the only park in the country with a sea coast as it borders with the Beagle Channel on the south. With a typical glacial landscape, the park merges mountain ranges extending northwest to southeast and deep valleys filled with rivers and lakes, rendering quite varied and astonishing views. The coastline forms the Lapataia and Ensenada Bays and is sprinkled with ravines and small beaches that are the ideal habitat for coastal bird fauna.
In addition to organized excursions, this fantastic National Park is perfect for other activities such as leisure walks, camping, canoeing, cycling tourism, sports fishing, bird watching and non-powered water sports. In winter, this area is ideal for cross-country skiing. The recreational area of Tierra del Fuego National Park offers multiple trails and paths for trekking.
