What You Can Expect

Best Ushuaia Shore Excursion: Private Tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park

Tierra del Fuego National Park

When your cruise ship arrives at the Ushuaia port, you’ll be picked up by your professional guide and taken 7 miles (11 km) outside of the city to Tierra del Feugo National Park, the southernmost national park in the world.

You'll immediately begin to see a change in scenery as you drive past picturesque Patagonian lakes, lagoons and rivers -- bodies of water that all exit through the famous Beagle Channel. Passing Mt Susana, you'll arrive at the old prison, now the site of the Southern Fuegian Railway (also known as the End of the World Train).

Here, you have the option to enjoy a train ride (own expense), which will take you along the route of the old railway that once held prisoners who chopped timber from the forest and transported it to the city. Admire the glacial scenery filled with beautiful valleys, lakes, mountains and Ensenada Bay, punctuated by Isla Redonda.

Back in your vehicle, cross the Lapataia River bridge and choose from several different low-impact hiking trails. Your guide can take you on a scenic hike to places such as Laguna Negra, Laguna Verde and Mirador Lapataia. Along the way, keep an eye out for birds, as these are great bird-watching spots.

Continue driving until you reach Lapataia Bay, where you can take a short hike along the canal. Among the rocks, you’ll see abundant sea mussels, limpets and snails, as well as various traces of the people who once inhabited this area thousands of years ago.

After your tour, you’ll be taken back to the Ushuaia port.

Oscar was our guide on this tour. It was a fabulous tour with our guide providing an interesting, fact-filled narrative for the entire trip. He provided stops for photos and explained the procedures for getting the stamp at the End of the World. He answered any questions we had fully often adding more information. It was a really great tour.

I booked this excursion during our cruise with Oceania. Our party of six had a huge van with plenty of space for 15 people. Erhan(sp?) , our guide was excellent, and took us on the train and short hike.
Recommend using this tour company, very dependable. Serving hot tea and cookies were a added touch to make our excursion the best!

There isn't a lot to see in the area but the bikes made it really fun. The tour should include the cemetery too then it would be perfect! We loved our guide Huego. Definitely would recommend this tour.

Our guide met us at the ship on time and was very easy to find. We had a mid-size van for the 6 of us that was very comfortable. On our way to the Park he told us about the area including its history, past and present and gave us a feel for what it was like to live there year round. Whenever we wanted to stop for pictures he was more than accommodating, even suggesting great locations. Since we were in a smaller van versus the large buses used by the cruise ship excursions we were able to go down some of the scenic roads that they couldnt. We were also able to navigate the bathroom opportunities before the crowds showed up. He was extremely knowledgeable and also gave us ideas of places to stop once we got back into town. I would highly recommend this company and tour for shore excursions in Ushuaia.

A good tour although the park itself not the most exciting . Our guide Marta was very interesting and helpful showing us around Ushuaia as well as the park

4 star rating: Recommended March 2013

The tour was excellent and the guide was knowledgable and courteous.

My only crib is that we had to wait almost two hours to be picked. Appears that there was some miscommunication on the pick up time. The local contact number we had was incorrect.
