Nice boat trip to the lighthouse, go to see Argentina's most southernly lighthouse and had an excellent birdwatching session while going around it!
This was the turning point of the boat trip we took out of Ushuaia. The weather was very variable mainly snow showers and grey sky. The lighthouse is situated in the middle of the Beagle channel and was a good contrast of red and white against a backdrop of grey. We enjoyed the trip as there was a lot of... More
It was interesting to know what it means when you get to the 'farol'. It's a historical mark for the End ohf the World. nice island and feels good to go out in the channel. I learnt a lot from these cruises.

You don't even step out of the boat. I highly recommend visiting as part of a bigger navigation tour, where you can see also other... More
A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and used as an aid to navigation for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. And that's exactly what you saw.
