Tourism in the province is one of the most significant potential. Its natural wealth and its varied geography show it as an archipelago full of beauty that has not been inspiration for writers such as Jules Verne, who have found the charm fueguino a source of inspiration.
Increasingly, south latitude is the Mecca of thousands of visitors from all over the world who travel this geography admiring the charm of its landscapes. In addition, Tierra del Fuego is the necessary reference point in the growing traffic of visitors to Antarctica.

The Grande Island of Tierra del Fuego is probably one of the places on the planet on which more has been written.

These are: brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), rainbow trout (Salmo irideus), landlocked salmon (Salmo salar sebago), brown trout (Salmo fario) the most widespread.
Now, for reasons still unknown, some specimens of brown trout go to sea and only ascend rivers to spawn. This practice gives them marine animal characteristics, so they acquire a silvery color and weights that easily overcome ten kilograms easily.
Such a mutation of the brown trout is known as sea trout, silver trout, or "sea run brown trout" and it is found mainly in Grande river and some of its tributaries. Also in the Irigoyen Mlanguena and Leticia rivers, though -temporarily- to a lesser quantity and quality.
This biological phenomenon has been detected and publicized in the highest circles of sport fishing, mentioned in the chronicles of the most renowned professional fishermen and it is now regarded as a must for those seeking to challenge the superiority in their actions. Therefore, Grande river is today regarded as the best fishery in its type (boasting five of the seven world records approved) and one of the five most prestigious in the world.

And secondly, the technology applied to the different working sections of the Agrotechnic School, which serves a model for the regional production system. In a one day visit you get to know all the areas, enjoy breakfast, lunch and snack based solely on the mission products and ride along the coast to the Cape Domingo, visiting several sites of historical interest.
It is known that, as humanity is seriously affected in its ecological balance as a result of population growth that registers with the consequent attack on biodiversity and the tragic consequences of environmental pollution that all these generate scarce natural systems preserved by the low population impact were subjected to acquire invaluable status. In this case, the "Heart of the Island" project opens its unspoiled nature and not degraded to anyone who dares to visit. There you can walk inside the ancient forests.
