  • It's just a lighthouse but it is Faro del Fin del Mundo Les Eclaireures -- the Lighthouse at the End of the World. That's the very lighthouse that inspired Jules Verne's novel of the same name. And....  more

  • Sure it’s in the middle of the Pacific and Antartic Oceans... but it’s just a simple lighthouse at the Beagle Channel, nothing more, nothing less.

  • This is the favorite meeting point for cormorants and seals, they are happily stinking and flying all around the the rock and the lighthouse. I would suggest to stop on the way to the penguin island and not to make a trip just to come here. Sunset was lovely!
  • The southern most light house of the world. It is an amazing site. Must visit
  • Gorgeous. Tha postal.Card
  • Remote lighthouse in the world. Nice spot to take pictures of sea lions.
  • Must to do tour if you are in Ushuaia. You navigate through Beagle Channel and the boats go near by sea lion, birds, and seals’ islands and the final island is the lighthouse one. If it’s pouring I don’t recommend it, cause it’s freezing. Wait for the next day and do it.
