They call this the Fin del Mundo (End of the World) but it's just the beginning of a beautiful journey through some of Mother Nature's finest scenery. Ushuia is fun to say. And it's proud to be the southern-most city in the known world. They outfit adventurers and fishermen and scientists for trips to Antarctica. But it's also the port where you catch a tour (or drive a car) to Tierra del Fuego National Park, filled with streams, forests and snowcapped mountains. Before you leave, be the first on your block to pose by the End of the World sign in town, right down by the water. Wherever you live, it's pretty far from home!
On the way to the National Park is pretty Ensenada Bay and, a little later, peaceful Roco Lake. You can hike around (my suggestion) or just look around. Take lots of pictures. The charm is its remoteness. There's nobody around but who you brought with you. You can find souvenirs - lots of stuffed penguins and some pretty woven sweaters & ponchos. Buy them here or in little villages. They're a fraction of the price the same things are going for in the airports & big cities.
We went in the middle of South America's summer, and the temperature was about 55°F. So wear layers. And a hat & scarf. If you want to take an amazing journey by rail, try the Tren (train) to the end of the world. Really. Who wouldn't? It's cute and you learn a lot of stories about history and people of the area.
