We will take the train at the End of the World Station. On board the train you will be able to hear the story of the prisoners who came daily to cut wood to this area, and delight in magnificent landscapes, composed of the zigzagging Pipo River, the La Macarena waterfall, the tree cemetery and the majestic forest of lengas In this way you will visit an inaccessible part of the Tierra del Fuego National Park, where you can enjoy this experience aboard a vintage railway, with its steam locomotives and elegant cars that have large windows and an individual audio system, the which offers the possibility of listening to the story in 7 different languages, in order to not only appreciate the nature that surrounds it, but also know a very important part of the history of Ushuaia. The train crosses the Cañadón del Toro and crosses the Pipo River over the so-called Puente Quemado, where the wooden remains of the old bridge are found under the new tracks. When crossing the Bridge, you access the first stop; La Macarena Station, as well as you can also see the changing Pipo River, a typical river formed by meltwater, which descends from the mountains and flows into the Beagle Channel. Once on board the train again, the trip continues to the National Park Station, contemplating the magnificent landscape offered by mountains and valleys near its border. On board each training our guides, tourism professionals, will be able to inform you everything related to the history of the original prisoners' train and about the different geographical characteristics of flora, fauna as well as what can be seen during the tour in case if you have any doubts about it. Arriving at the National Park Station, our last stop, your guide will be waiting for you to continue your visit to the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The National Park represents the southernmost protected area in Argentina. It is the only one that has sea coasts and mountains. On this tour we will visit the Pipo River, Monte Susana, Acigami Lake, Alacush Visitor Center, Laguna Verde and Lapataia Bay where the Pan-American route system ends. We will make descents to take photographs and a walk of about 30 minutes that will be subject to weather conditions. The topography of the Park is extremely varied, being a succession of steep mountains, rivers, valleys, lakes until accessing the coast of the Beagle Channel. Throughout the year you can admire the subantarctic forest. The most common mammal is the Fuegian red fox. The variety of marine and mountainous environments allows bird species to live here, from the cachaña, the giant woodpecker, the pintail and the Patagonian thrush, to the caranca cauqué, symbol of the National Park. At the end of the excursion, we will return from the National Park to Ushuaia in a shared transfer.
