End of the World Train

A small narrow-gauge railway has become the meeting point for thousands of tourists who come in search of adventure.

It departs from Municipal Camping and borders the Pipo River. Then makes a first stop where you can see the reconstruction of huts made by the Onas aborigenes and a small waterfall with crystal clear water running down from the mountain.

The journey continues and goes through the Tierra del Fuego National Park while you enjoy a beautiful landscape that combines rivers, waterfalls, mountains and forests, impossible to assess by other means. The locomotive and the cars are real works of art.
