On our last full day in Ushuaia, we set out for a half day hike of Tierra del Fuego National Park. This hike was nothing like the hikes from earlier in the trip and I was immensely grateful. For the most part, the hike was flat and had a nice variety of views.
If you’re there during the more popular season, you can mail a post card from the park and say it’s from the end of the world. Also, check out the little mini lighthouse at the end of the dock.
Luckily these river crossings had small bridges.
A little sea lion friend greeted us on part of our hike. We sat and watched him swim around for quite awhile.
I loved how the hike went from rocky shoreline, through the forest and came out on green grass.
The trees had all sorts of neat things growing on them, including the fungus below!
The surrounding mountains added a nice backdrop to our hike.
Good thing that tree has some tape holding it together, haha.
There was a forest fire here several years ago and you can see the impact on the vegetation.
At the end of the hike, you can get your passport stamped saying you’ve been to the end of the world. They also have a cafe and clean bathrooms to use.
After our morning spent hiking around the national park, we were transported to the penguin island!
