Bahia Lapataia, Ushuaia

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
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.
