  • I did a tour guided by the Tierra del Fuego National Park. Despite the cold, the contact with nature is superb. Meet flora, see the geese, the clear waters and clean air in the park surrounded by hills that are the order of the Andes, makes us feel in another world. Recommend

  • Splendid landscape Park, with hiking trails, information centre, campground, lakes and rivers, on the border with Chile. Too big. There's no way to get around without a car or bus all over the Park. Special charm: the southernmost post office in the world. You can send postcards purchased right there, with a special stamp of the place. The post is not very cheap, but the joke is a must.

  • The landscape of the place is the main attraction of the place, although it is missing signage and wifi in the visitors area... the natural space and the atmosphere that one manages to perceive is spectacular. We even saw a lot of birds woodpeckers and natural flora that we loved!

  • World's last national park with breathtaking view of river, snow capped mountain and rare flora and fauna. Boat tour on river is challenging but rewarding view. Forest tours equally adventurous with strange trees. World last mailing post is located in the park.
  • I am torn on how to review. The park is nice yes. We has some beautiful views from Cerro Guanaco even if we had very changing weather (part of the beauty of Patagonia!) However the prices are a real scam which should be stopped. This is abusing of those that go there... 500 pesos for he ride there and back per person Around 350 pesos for the park entry This means you pay a lot just to get there and get it. However when we got on the trail we could see there is not much maintenance of the trail. Long sections had no indications at all so you had to scout. This is a very basis trail (which I like) with no structures to get over dodgy areas. If this money is a government tax to get money I don't know but this was quite annoying.
  • This place is pure peace...the weather was perfect for a hike...a slight drizzle that made our adventure epic! What a wonderful untouched piece of nature... If this is what the "end of the world" looks like we're in for a great ride! 😎
  • We went to visit in September which was great as there was no fee to enter the park! However, the colectivos here were absolutely extortionate (£25 per person). Luckily, we found an amazing couple that we were able to hitchhike with and see most of the park with. (a lot of the area were closed due to needing the ground to recover). This park is NOT EASY to navigate without a tour or transport ( as mentioned before, we got very very lucky). The views are amazing and well worth the visit if it doesn't cost you much money!
  • Parque has almost no routes for hiking, only restaurant is bad. It‘s great for taking nature pictures from the view tourist spots, but for the amount of possibilities, USD 20 (350 ARS) is too much.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
