The extreme southern part of the American Continent offers a variety of emotions that can invade those who visit the region, located at the end of the world. A world of legends for those who can accept the challenge of solitude with nature as the only company, at its best times. At the top of the long list of the places to visit, we highlight the Glacier National Park, passing through the mythical Tierra del Fuego and the Southern Islands until arriving at the White Continent, Antarctica. A visit to this place will help put you in contact with the marvels of the nature in constant creation. But once you are here, it’s impossible not to promise to return again and again.

Excursions

Included Excursions

Peninsula Valdes.
The Península Valdés is one of the most important natural reserves in Argentina. There live the southern whales, the sea elephants, and the sea lions, thousands of aquatic birds make their nests, such as Pelicans, Cormorants, and Oyster Catchers. With a good view we can see Guanacos, Ñandúes, and Marás. Along the coast, we can find sea elephants that are the only type that can be seen from land, apart from those in Antarctica.

Puerto Piramide.
This place is located almost 100 kms from Puerto Madryn, and was an important whaling and seal skin business center. In the 19th century there were more than 700 whalers operating in this water. Since the signed international treaty of protections, the whale population has recuperated a little to about 2000 that continue to live and reproduce near the coasts more or less in July, staying there until the middle of December.

Tierra del Fuego National Park.
The Tierra del Fuego National Park is located 20 minutes from the city of Ushuaia. The mountains are steeper and closer to the coast than in Ushuaia and other points more to the East. Near the Park entrance the highway descends to the channel in Ensenada, where there are native trees and the characteristic knolls of the Yámanas. Here we find the Train to the End of the World, a small narrow gauge train that leaves near Ushuaia and arrives near the Park.

The Glaciers National Park

The Glaciers National Park.
The beautiful nature offers uncommon panoramic views. This place was declared a Natural World Heritage by UNESCO and now conserves species danger of extinction such as the Huemul or the Huillín. Inside the Park, we find the Viedma and Argentino Lakes. The later has a surface of more than 1000 square kms and extends its branches to where various glaciers end, among the most highlighted are the Upsala and the Moreno. Another world important Glacier is the Perito Moreno Glacier, which penetrates the lake with a mass of ice of about 60 meters in height, with large chunks breaking off and crashing into the Témpanos Channel.

Bariloche.
Bariloche is located in the middle of the Nahuel Huapi National Park and is in the middle of the Lakes Region of the Patagonia. In Bariloche, we can find a strong European influence; the majority of the first colonists came from Switzerland, Germany, and northern Italy. The city has grown, expanding to the foot of Otto Hill, a large mountainous chain.
