Tierra Del Fuego National Park, Argentina

The 63,000-hectare park is mostly fenced off from tourists for environmental preservation. It stretches to the Chilean border. Wild fires have done great damage to the park, so have non-native beavers and other species. The main attractions for tourists are the Fin Del Mundo (end of the PanAmerica highway Route 3) and the Tren del Fin Del Mundo (Train of the End of the World) - the latter was used by prisoners to transfer wood out of the forests.
