Tren del Fin del Mundo (End of the World Train)
Tren del Fin del Mundo (End of the World Train) Review
The Tren del Fin del Mundo is heavily promoted but a bit of a letdown. Purported to take you inside the Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, 12 km (7½ mi) away from town, you have to drive to get there, and it leaves visitors a long way short of the most spectacular scenery in the national park. The touristy 40-minute train ride's gimmick is a simulation of the trip El Presidio prisoners were forced to take into the forest to chop wood; but unlike them, you'll also get a good presentation of Ushuaia's history (in Spanish and English). The train departs daily at 9 am, noon, and 3 pm. One common way to do the trip is to hire a remis (car service) that will drop you at the station for a one-way train ride and pick you up at the other end, then drive you around the Parque Nacional for two or three hours of sightseeing (which is far more scenic than the train ride itself).
