Today we drove to the Central Train Station and took a ride on Tierra del Fuego Southern Railway, Train to the End of the World. This railway uses the original narrow gauge line that was part of the small train for prisoners that ran until 1947. Upon arrival at the Park Station, we boarded our coach for a drive through Tierra del Fuego National Park to Lapataia Bay, marking the end of the road which is 2,010 miles from Buenos Aires. We then got on a catamaran for our return to the ship via the Beagle Channel. While sailing, we saw the historic lighthouse, Les Eclaireurs, as well as Seal Island, Isla de Los Lobos, and Island of the Birds, whose names express the abundant wildlife you can view from the deck on our journey back to the ship.
