Tierra del Fuego Park, Argentina and the end of Ruta 3. Yes, this was a very short ride, but it is one that everyone who goes this distance feels compelled to do.

And so, I got up early bells rode into the Tierra del Fuego National Park (Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego). You might even take a packed lunch and have a picnic. There are lots of areas to park and go for a little walk and spend a relaxing afternoon by one of the many little lakes.

The ride is mostly a dirt track, and if you are a tourist, you have to pay about USD $20 with a bike. Pretty much a rip-off. If you are camping, you can pay extra fees, sign and document, and camp there, which would have been nice! If you are there at the busy time of year, it will be quite crowded, but still probably worth the trip.

It is a nice park, but not amazing. If you have done the trip by car or bike, then you need to go. If not, you might consider giving it a miss.
