Tierra del Fuego National Park is the southernmost protected natural area of Argentina and runs for almost 7 km along the Beagle Channel. A rugged territory and successions of steep mountains, with rivers running through deep valleys and many lakes, make up the varied landscape.
Created by the Argentine government in the year 1960 to protect the southernmost sub-Antarctic forests, Tierra del Fuego National Park is the country's only park with an ocean shoreline. It offers historical and wild attractions, and borders with Chile to the West and the Beagle Channel to the South.
It boasts a typical glacial landscape, with a mountainous area and deep valleys washed by rivers and lakes, and mountains ranging from the North West to the South East.
There are numerous pedestrian crosswalks in this National Park starting at different points along Route Nº 3 and reaching wonderful places:
Island Walk - The 800 m track crosses part of the Cormorant Archipelago up to Green Lagoon. It runs along the banks of the Lapataia and Ovando rivers.
Negra Lagoon Track - 400 meters away from the Park, its dark colored waters are due to the presence of big peat mosses.
Lapataia Vantage Point Walk - An alternative access option to Lapataia Bay, after a 500-meter walk, through the lenga forest, a scenic pathway affords a striking view of the bay, and winds down to its shore.
Peat Bog Walkway - 400 meters away from Lapataia Bay, along the way through lenga forests may be seen abandoned beaver dams.
