FABIO'S REVIEW

Yellow-Visiting

The landscapes of the park are nice if you never experienced such scenery; coming from many weeks in Patagonia, and having explored the magnificent Torres del Paine in Chile, I was not particularly impressed.

1 - BAHIA LAPATAIA (A.K.A. THE END OF THE WORLD)

Ushuaia is often referred to as "The End of the World" or "El Fin del Mundo", due to its extreme latitude. The Bahia Lapataia (Lapataia Bay) is a fjord on the northern bank of the Beagle Channel , in the southwest end of the sector argentino of the Great island of Tierra del Fuego. Allegedly, the world ends where this road ends.
