The first stop along this historic narrow-gauge railway is La Macarena Station, where you'll have about 15 minutes to disembark for photos or a short walk. Listen for the train whistle indicating it's time to go.
Back aboard, the train will continue into Tierra del Fuego National Park, the only coastal national park in Argentina. Pass through an area known as the Tree Cemetery, where convicts once cleared trees more than a century ago. Cross over the Pipo River, and after about an hour on the train, arrive at National Park Station.
From here, you're free to explore the national park for the remainder of the day (or longer), or return on the next train back to End of the World Station. The entire roundtrip journey aboard the train last about 1 hour and 40 minutes. Throughout the journey, a multilingual guide will be on hand to offer information in English. This tour is wheelchair accessible.

This was ridiculous. I think the tiny train went a total of three miles into the park. Everyone was very sweet, but we could have used our time much better and really gotten to see the park. Even our 5 and 7 year old children were bored.
We booked a ticket which was to include hotel pickup and drop off- $90cdn
Discovered the day before that no one knew what company did hotel pickup and we were told that the bus shuttle from waterfront was 300 pesos each way !! A taxi will likely be $10 USD, a way cheaper option and then you can go whenever you want.
The train trip was very good and way longer than expected, 30 minutes each way as it travels slowly. We had 1st class tickets so had lunch and wine/tea along the way.
Train is a bit pricey for what it is. The line at the front to convert voucher into tickets was long. The voiceover was very good and they stop to let you climb up some stairs to a beautiful waterfall. Further away from the cruise ship pier than we expected. Turning around the train to go back took about thirty minutes. The train passes through some very nice areas with good views of the tree cemetery. Also, there were many wild horses in the area, which were very majestic looking.
There was a glitch and they had no record of my having purchased the ticket...so I repurchased. The history of the train is interesting but our guide was a real bust. He seemed bored with the whole thing. I would take the city bus or taxi to the train and buy a ticket there.
This was over-rated and poor value for money! The best thing about the trip was the refreshments! We went first class and the refreshments were lovely. The train journey itself was 7 Kms long. There was nothing pretty to see out the window just barren ground and dead tree stumps! There wasn't even anything to see at the end of the line! The staff in the station were friendly and it was all very well organised but really the trip itself was a non event. We had to pay 210 pesos each because the train went into the national park and the taxis from the town to the station were very expensive 30 there and back to do a 10 mile round trip. All in all a waste of money!
Such a fun ride. You need to take a cab to the train station and return but that was about 8 each way. The train was a great ride through beautiful scenery. At end of train route I hiked to the local post office and along the coastal trail before returning to the train depot for return trip.
All the staff was so helpful and friendly
Highly recommend this trip if you are in Ushuaia
