Train of the End of the World (tickets)
After forty years without functioning, in 1994 End of the World Train took again part of the old route that made the prisoners train, which left from the prison of Ushuaia, located in the center of the city, towards the slope of the Susana Mountain with the objective of obtaining materials (wood and stone) for the construction of the same one. The train station is located only eight km from the city of Ushuaia, and our guides and guards will invite you to relive the last seven km of the journey. Onboard the train you can listen to the history of the prisoners who came daily to cut wood to this area and enjoy magnificent landscapes, composed of the zigzagging Pipo River, the Macarena waterfall, the tree cemetery, and the majestic lenga forest. In this way, you will visit an inaccessible part of the Tierra del Fuego National Park, where you will be able to enjoy this experience aboard a vintage railroad, with its steam locomotives and elegant cars that have large windows and an individual audio system, which offers the possibility of listening to history in 7 different languages, in order not only to appreciate the nature that surrounds you but also to know a very important part of the history of Ushuaia.
The train crosses the Cañadón del Toro and crosses the Pipo River over the so-called Puente Quemado (Burnt Bridge), where the remains of wood from the old bridge are found under the new tracks, with access to the first stop, La Macarena Station. From this bridge, you can see the changing Rio Pipo, a typical river formed by meltwater, which descends from the mountains and flows into the Beagle Channel.
La Macarena Station is a place of historical interest where the prisoners’ train used to stop to provide water to the tanks of the steam locomotive called La Coqueta. In this stop, it is possible to ascend until a viewpoint that offers an incomparable view of the Valley of the Pipo River, Cerro Guanaco, Cerro la Portada, and Monte Susana. Ascending towards the upper part, it will be possible to reach the source of the Macarena waterfall in the Del Martial Mountain Chain, which is formed by thaws that are born at the top of the mountain. You can also find our prisoners who will offer their photographic service and also a grocery store, which has a souvenir of our railroad. After a few minutes, the whistle of the guards will call all to quietly return to the train and the train restarts its march to the National Park Tierra del Fuego.
Arriving at the National Park Station, our last stop, the passenger who meets a travel agency or contracted excursion, your guides and transport will be waiting for you to continue your visit to Tierra del Fuego National Park and for those passengers who came in a particular way will return with us on the same train to the Main Station.
