Tierra del Fuego National Park

Get to know the Tierra del Fuego National Park and all the activities you can do there

Tierra del Fuego
parque nacional tierra del fuego

The natural conformation of this park does not differ mostly from that of its peers; what gives  originality  to the   Tierra del Fuego  National Park  is to be the  only possessor of sea coasts , since its southern boundary is bathed by the waters  of the Beagle Canal . In addition to being representative of the local flora and fauna, the Park shelvers archaeological remains of the  Yámana Aboriginal village . Another attraction is that inside it is the end of National Route Nº3 and the Pan American Route, in the famous and  beautiful Lapataia Bay.  

The  park  was created on October 15, 1960, by Law 15,554. It has 63,000 hectares, of which  only 2,000 hectares are intended for recreational and educational use  of the population and tourism. In addition to organized excursions, activities such as  hiking, camping, sport fishing, bird watching and water sports on non-motorized boats , while during winter the area is ideal for  cross-country skiing.
