Best in the evening

Lovely scenery - we arrived fairly late in the evening and had the spot almost by ourselves. Last rays of sun to take the famous picture, so quiet and peaceful. Easy trail walks.

This is the end of the road going all the way from Alaska. I understand that many people have a dream of going all the way from the start to end or visiting both end of this road, but essentially it is just a sign that you visit. We enjoyed the view in the area and got some nice pictures... More

Beautiful spot, literally the end of the world, this is where the road from Alaska ends. Nice walks through the reserve, with a number ov viewpoints overlooking a tranquil lake.

Bahia Lapataia or Bay of Lapataia is a scenic spot in Tierra del Fuego National Park, about 20 minute drive from Ushuaia downtown. Interestingly, it is the southern end of Pan American Highway which started in Alaska > 17,000 km north passing through many countries. Visited Tierra del Fuego including Bahia Lapataia twice, before and after our Antarctica cruise. On... More

Absolutely mind blowing views. The serenity is addictive. If you are lucky the clouds will give you an amazing shot and as they clear the sun's rays trickle through creating the most photographable light.

This is a lovely view with several short, easy walks along the boardwalk. Make sure to take your picture at the end of the world sign!

A most interesting place to visit. Florence our guide told us that "Lapataia" meant there is nothing else you need. The indigenous people had all they needed to enjoy a simple, happy and healthy life. It was a windy day when we visited, but I am so glad we saw this pretty spot. A definite "must-see" in your exploration of... More

You don't need to spend a lot of time here, but it is the end of the world so it's worth stopping for some quick photos and a walk around. It's the end of Pan-American Highway, which was cool because we also drove this same highway while visiting Alaska.
