Tierra del Fuego National Park

Updated on March 30, 2011

End of Pan American Highway

My Tierra del Fuego Experience

Tierra del Fuego National Park was established in 1960. The national park contains the southernmost parts of the Andes Mountains, and southern beech woods dominate the landscape. The most widely distrubuted tree is the Lenga. The park also contains many peat bogs.

Wildlife that I saw while at the park included horses, rabbits, a Fuegian red fox, and an upland goose.

I took a short hike through the woods to a great lookout point. From the lookout point, you could see the Lapataia Bay. The end of the trail was also the end of the Pan American Highway. The other end of the highway is in Alaska.
