End of the World Prison & Vintage Train
h Estimate Duration
Immerse yourself in Ushuaia’s history. In the early 19th century the Argentine government set up the Prison of Ushuaia where escape was practically impossible and for the first half of the 20th century, the city was centered around the prison. The prisoners became forced colonists and spent much of their time cutting wood in the forest and building the town. They also built a railway known as the prisoners train and the southernmost railway in the world. Dangerous convicts and well-known political prisoners made this prison famous until it closed in 1947.
Today you’ll learn about the life of the prisoners during those days when they were the inhabitants of the End of the World. You’ll begin with a visit to the old prison which today is home to a museum and take a train ride. During the narrated journey you’ll discover a part of Tierra del Fuego’s legendary history. At the railway’s turnaround point, you’ll board a motorcoach and continue a tour through the national park to Ensenada Bay, one of the area’s scenic highlights before heading back to the pier.
