Bahia Lapataia, Ushuaia
(4.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Dotted with rock islets and rugged shorelines, Bahia Lapataia serves as a haven for the region's plentiful waterfowl. Home to ducks, plovers, migratory geese, and others, the bay also boasts a thickly forested landscape covered in sub-Antarctic tree and shrub species. Explore the bay's surroundings by wandering along the many trails and boardwalks that crisscross the area, and note the stony hills carved out over millions of years by glacial movements. Keep an eye out for non-avian wildlife, such as otters, and other local landmarks, including the old lighthouse beacon, along the way. Make Bahia Lapataia part of your personalized Ushuaia itinerary using our Ushuaia trip itinerary maker.

  • Stay in the National Park of Tierra del Fuego. I booked the trip in the hotel. Bahia Lapataia was part of the walk in the Park. It was the final attraction, before we return to the hotel at around 1:30 pm
