The views at Bahia Lapataia are great, but it's better to hike there than the ride there, as the scenery throughout the hike is gorgeous. You can catch a bus to the park from Ushuaia; check at the tourist information booth for timetables.

When you reach Bahia Lapataia, you are literaly at the "end of the world". You can park your car here, take a pic at the famous sign that shows that the road Nº3 ends here, and take some (or all) of the short trails that depart from there. I recommend the "mirador" and the "baliza" ones, because you can see... More

Have to take the trip. It's the end of the world. Several ways to get there. Most tours go to it (boat, bus, train) Best photo op.

Pan American Highway ends at here! Also, you can do a boat tour too. I recommend hiking route 6 if you managed to get here. Route 6 will lead you to the end of the national park.

When you visit Terra Del Fuego National park, Bahia Lapataia is the most important highlight of the park. I recommend to take the End of the World Train and have a tour booked in advanced to go there. Make sure to visit Lake Roca ( southern most post office located there) and the beaver dam while in the park.

There are indeed fantastic views of the bay, but to be honest similar views an be found anywhere along or in the Beagle Channel. This location's main claim to fame is that it is the official southern end of the Pan-American Highway, reached along a 10km dirt track fro Ushuaia through the national park. But in itself it is nothing... More

Even if it is not so amazing, for me personally the end of the trans american route is something special and as it is not really hard to get there from Ushuaia I don't regret to come here. Besides in my opinion there is also one of the nicest views in the park, but this is subject to taste. If... More

Nice stop with our guide Nadia from Tiempo Libre. Easy boardwalk trail and of course the obligatory end of the world sign.

This is where you get your pics at the end of the world. Argentina Highway 3 from Buenos Aires (which crosses briefly into Chile) ends here. Otherwise the views are nothing to write home about. Next stop is Antarctica.

This is the further south one can go within Argentina on the mainland there are a few islands further south which are there. This point is just beautiful and very quiet.
