While in Tierra del Fuego, make sure to visit the National Park and some of the beautiful lakes in the surrounding of Ushuaia. Here are two examples of where to go:

To the lake Roca: located to 20 kilometers to the west of Ushuaia by the national route #3 in the National Park Tierra del Fuego. The lake drains through the river Lapataia and both offer very good possibilities for the fishing. If you cross the bridge on the river and you continue the road, you arrive to the lagoon Negra, a mirror of very dark waters on a peat place of mosses.

To the lake Fagnano: toward the northeast by the national route #3. When arriving to the pass Garibaldi, it is obtained one of the best panoramic views on this lake and its neighbor, the lake Escondido, where the petrel inhabits.
