The geography is as spectacular as the train ride that runs through the Tierra del Fuego valley. A legend tour in the confines of the world.
The End of the World Train runs through the Pipo River valley along the slopes of Mount Susana and enters the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The walk is part of the recovery of the train tracks of the prisoners, after more than 40 years of their cessation. The penal railroad that had life in the first half of the last century also gave impetus to a hamlet that was born on the banks of the Beagle Channel, today converted into the beautiful Ushuaia .
A beautiful walk full of history
The End of the World Station is the beginning of this southern experience, 8 km from the city of Ushuaia . The stories begin to fly over the environment. The legend of the prison stomps and tells how a great gray mass was built, destiny of the most dangerous prisoners of stories rusty by time and the sensationalist press of the early twentieth century.
Those convicted fell into this prison and in turn gave momentum to a people born of this population factor. Ushuaia has a strong civilization strategy at its foundation based through this project inspired by other penal colonies in the world. The building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1997 and put into recovery by the Argentine Navy and the Ushuaia Maritime Museum.
