Hikes at the “End of the World”: Views, bays and bogs in Tierra del Fuego National Park (Tierra del Fuego, Argentina)

Beagle Channel
View from Cerro Guanaco

The southernmost city in the world calls itself the “end of the world” and seen from the capital, it really is: since the Strait of Magellan belongs entirely to Chile, you not only have to cross the sea lane, but also a few borders. I didn’t expect much from Tierra del Fuego and am all the more surprised by the beauty of the landscape. I spend two days in the national park, the first hiking along the coast of the Beagle Channel, the second climbing the Cerro Guanaco. From here, not only the Beagle Channel with the islands to the south can be seen, but also the heavily glaciated Darwin Cordillera (Chile), with the highest peak on Tierra del Fuego.
