Bahia Lapataia, Ushuaia

4.7
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.

  • You have to walk enough to get the point of the catwalks cute where there is a perfect view for photos. We saw a lot of Eagles, and plants, trees of all sizes and colors,

  • We toured part of the National Park of Tierra del Fuego that counts with around 62 thousand Kms2, according to explained the Guide. After a small ascent along a well signposted and easy way, we arrived to the Lapataia Bay with a fantastic view, surrounded by mountains and wonderful vegetation. There is the large sign that places the tourists, pointing out that this is where ends the route 3, called pan, as it begins in Alaska. I guess I, with long outages along such a huge journey. And there same ends the continent. It's very exciting to be in that place and enjoy admiring so much beauty.

  • This is one of the points of the ride within the Park. There is a platform where you can walk to the Lake, where there's a gazebo. Very beautiful place.
