GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Beagle Channel is a strait in the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago on the extreme southern tip of South America, partly in Chile and partly in Argentina.  The channel separates the larger main island of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego from various smaller islands. The channel's eastern area forms part of the border between Chile and Argentina and the western area is entirely within Chile.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Visiting

The most interesting tour in Ushuaia. Great desolated landscapes, an abandoned colonial lighthouse (with the usual BS ""end-of-the-world lighthouse”), and tons of sea lions and cormorants.

Beware, the winds are very, VERY strong (you are basically next to the Cap Horn, it cannot get any worse!) and this makes the temperature seem much colder than what it really is.
