The tour to Tierra del Fuego National Park starts at the hotel, where passengers are picked up and then taken by bus to the Southern Fuegian Railway Station. There, visitors may choose to take the “End of the World Train” tour.

It was created in 1960, extending over an area of 63,000 hectares (155,673 acres), and it is located in the eco-regions of the Patagonian Forest and the High Andes, characterized by a temperate to cold and damp climate, with winter snows and rainfalls, and a rough and steep mountain landscape with glacial valleys.
In this Park, visitors can admire its lenga beech, ñire, and cherry tree forests, its rivers, lakes, and peat bogs, the views of the channel and the various-length paths offering a chance to have a first-hand contact with the southernmost nature.
