The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego is at the southern tip of the American continent. The last inhabited place before Antarctica was the only maritime connection between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans until the construction of the Panamá Canal.

The “Land of fire” offers a close encounter with nature and for the adventurous spirits the options include trekking, horseback rides, 4×4 off road and kayaking.

Glaciers, valleys, peat bogs and lakes are hidden in the mountains which, in turn, are covered by thick forests and abundant fauna.


Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and a necessary stopover for cruise ships and expeditions to Antarctica. It lies on the shores of the Beagle Channel, protected by the snowy peaks of the Darwin Cordillera.

The city´s distinctive atmosphere and location combine with excellent services and comfortable lodgingto make it a privileged hub foroutstanding nature experiences.


Beagle Channel is a narrow and windswept maritime strait that runs from East to West, linking the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans where iconic Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse guides the ships safely into Ushuaia bay.

The Darwin Cordillera separates the mainland from the archipelago´s southern islets, home for sea lions, dolphins, penguins and many marine bird species, including the magnificent albatross.

This wilderness paradise can be explored by boat or canoe and walking along its beautiful coasts and islets.


The post-glacial landscape of the National Park delights visitors with its exuberant flora and fauna.

Rocky peaks, deep valleys, fjords, lakes and bays host grasslands and dense forests, which are, in turn, covered by lichens, moss, ferns and mushrooms, making it an ideal habitat for woodpeckers, owls, eagles, hawks and condors.

Beavers were introduced in Tierra del Fuego in the 20th century. Although they are considered a threat to native flora, they became part of the wildlife and contribute with additional eco-regions by building impressive beaver dams and the resulting new ponds and lagoons.


North of Fagnano Lake, a succession of hills and valleys crisscrossed by rivers and streams give birth to Yehuin, Chepelmut and Yakush Lakes and ideal grazing lands for cattle and horse breeding. Not in vain this region is also known as the “Heart of the Island”.

It is likely to observe representatives of our wildlife such as guanacos, foxes, wild goose, black necked swans, Austral parakeet, eagles and many other bird species.

Northwards the forest makes way for the immense steppe with grasslands and flag trees bent by the wind and home for the large sheep breeding estancias of Tierra del Fuego. On the Atlantic coast, Desdémona shipwreck lies in between an exquisitely desolated landscape.
