Tierra del Fuego Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 36 photos
Rio Grande is the largest town in Tierra del Fuego / Fireland and it is an easy fullday-trip from Ushuaia. Rio Grande sounds like a giant river but in fact it is just such a narrow river, but at least it had an interesting old bridge, that you can still see below the new bridge for the cartrafic of today.
Just imagine, that in the old days all of the trafic was going over that bridge, including thousands of sheep or cows, when they were taken from one of the farms to the freezing point.
The bridge dates back to 1920 and its components were imported from USA.
You are not allowed to walk over it, and in case that you want to do it anyway, take a look first for the many rusty or broken parts of the construction !!
