The end of the world
Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego

The southernmost extreme of the Americas, this windswept archipelago is as alluring as it is moody, beautiful, ancient and strange. Travelers who visit the tip of the continent discover a destination that there can be more than bragging rights. With a past storied with shipwrecks, native peoples and failed missions, Tierra del Fuego or "Land of Fire" has scoured plains, rusted peat bogs and mossy forests and the snowy ranges above the Beagle Channel.
