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)
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!
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.

Cabañas Ushuaia Nice apartments (although dated furnishings) with deck and nice views of Ushuaia. The lady who operated these was nice; they also run a lovely little pastry shop downstairs. My only issue was WiFi which was pretty poor. All in all a great stay and something nice to come home to each evening!
