#2 of 8 in Trails in Province of Tierra del Fuego
Sail along the coastline of Ushuaia Bay, featuring a backdrop of snowcapped mountains and offering access to small islands with thousands of birds, penguin colonies, and seals. Try to spot orcas, sea lions bathing in the sun, and albatrosses smoothly gliding through the air along the way. Visit the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, which is often mistaken for the "Lighthouse at the End of the World" from Jules Verne's novel of the same title. Dress adequately, with plenty of layers, a hood, and warm gloves.
