Basically walked through forest. It was freezing cold and didn't see anything special or different and could have been walking through any cold forest in the world!

As I noted in our review, our much-later arrival in Ushuaia compounded with tendering issues on the Zaandam got us ashore almost two hours after the scheduled time. The tour guide was patiently waiting for us at the end of the pier. This was a private, three-person tour so we were able to make up some of the lost time and still get a full program in the national park. The national park here is a must for visitors to Ushuaia. Tour guide was entertaining, competent, and recommended highly. He also give us a shortened tour of the city. We would have liked to have had a meal in Ushuaia, which is famous for the local crabs, but alas did not. Read Less

The train ride was a joke. The national park was essentially an old post office on the lake. Would have been better to hang around Ushaiai longer

The excursion was limited because the ship moved so slowly we only had time for 10 min stops to take a few pictures.

Was pretty, but the last part of the tour was in the dark because of the late arrival (7 hours). Also things were closed by the time we arrived. Was unable to get a souvenir there.

We did not see much of the town itself except right around the pier where the ship docked. That area is nominal at best. The harbor has some old rusty stuff - barges or old boats I guess - that make it look like nobody cares for the place. We saw the downtown from a distance, it may have been better. We took the tour bus from the pier for a 30 minute ride to Tierra del Fuego and had three stops in the park. I'd say it was nice but not stunning. It's claim to fame is that it is "at the end of the world" as they say. There is a post office in the park and you will have a chance to send a postcard with an "end of the world" postmark. Note that Ushuaia is in Argentina. They call their money pesos - same name as Chilean money - but the exchange rate is quite different. My wife bought a notepad and a pen in a shop on the pier. She used a credit card to buy it. She found out later that in US dollars she paid about $20 when she thought she was paying about $5. Read Less

a beautiful park with opportunities for some easy walking on the paths. You will go on highway 3 to the place where it ends which also is the fartherest point of the PanAmerican Highway.

Too crowded. Buses had trouble getting in and out of the park. Scenic but not worth it.
