USHUAIA
Three Days

DAY 1: Arrival in Ushuaia
Transfer to the airport today for our flight to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, placed at El Martial mountain chain, and overlooking the Ushuaia Bay, the Navarino and Hose Islands (Chile). On arrival, you are met and transferred to your hotel. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to settle in or explore this small and walk able city on your own. The old town with the Museum of the End of the World is usually of interest to many.
Overnight accommodations

DAY 2: Tierra del Fuego National Park and Beagle Channel
This morning we journey on the “End of the World” Train (Tierra del Fuego Line), where visitors are presented with breathtaking views of snow covered mountains, rivers and lakes and a vast natural forest at the Andes ridge. Two distinctive landscapes constitute this State: the Northern part called Estepa Patagonica and the Southern region with its typical mountain geography. The island was discovered in 1520 by conquistador Hernando de Magallanes while he was looking for a path that would connect the Atlantic with the Pacific Ocean. The Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino (FAF) is the first train in Latin America to have been buil t with visitors in mind. It consists of steam engines, coaches comfortably heated and fitted with large windows. A roundtrip takes about 2 hours. The train leaves the ‘end of the world’ station, 8 km west of Ushuaia, traveling through the National Park “Tierra del Fuego”. The train is a masterpiece. Tierra del Fuego is the only national park that has a coastal area (63,000 has covered with wild raw nature). It borders Chile to the west and the Beagle canal to the south. The landscape is very rough and unlikely to have plateaus. There is a comfortable coffee shop at the station where without doubt visitors will enjoy chocolates and local cakes. A visit to the FAF workshop and the museum where there is a display of old pictures make this a well rounded experience. The trip covers almost the s ame tracks that the old ‘convict train’ did decades ago (Tierra del Fuego prison). The train is considered to have low environmental impact due to the number of passengers that carries and the type of fuel used.
After lunch, set sail from Ushuaia, to navigate along the waters of the Beagle Channel. Voyage along Ushuaia Bay, the northern coast of the channel, the archipelago and Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse. Watch colonies of diverse sea birds nesting in islands and cliffs – such as cormorants, albatross, petrels, oyster birds, etc. as well as colonies of sea lions.
