We were in Ushuaia a couple of days early for an Antarctic expedition, so checked out a number of things including the End of the World Train. A little expensive for a 'toy train' ride, but it was fun, there was interesting commentary, and the views were pleasurable with a number of photo opportunities. In summary, I enjoyed it and,...

We rode the train one-way from the National Park Station to the End of the World Station with lovely views of the park in snow. The train cars are narrow with only three seats across with doors on each side. Unfortunately, we were seated right by the heater which blew very hot air on us for the duration of the... More

Amazing little train ride to the end of the world. Very scenic, and a little history of the prisoners that build it an the lives. Not a comfort coach. Made for prisoners, updated for tourist

This was rated highly by our fellow cruisers who opted for this rather than the drive to the end of the panamerican highway which we did. Our guide was knowledgable and pointed out the verities of flora and fauna . Although the sun shone it was windy and cold so wrap up well. The views over the Magellan straights are... More

We were lucky to catch the last 3pm train for the day! Arrange you trip to Tierra del Fuego park to arrive by train. Seeing the station and the slow 7km ride for 1hour is spectacular. Arrange with your guide to pick you up and continue seeing the park, a highlight in itself to see arctic vegetation and glaciar landforms!... More

I have always been a train nut and imagine having the chance to ride the End of World train. It was steam hauled the day I rode and the commentary provided a clear insight to the former penal colony and its activities the pace was not too fast and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip One of the highlights of our...

I took this as part of a tour with a visit to the national park. The train ride is comfortable but there really is nothing much to see. Commentaries are in Spanish and English and you learn some of the history of the place. There is a photo stop but not great scenery.

Enjoyed train and history, would recommend doing one way and taking bus back. Very pricey (like everything in Ushuaia).

We have often wondered what it was like at the end of the world. Holland America cruise line took us there and now we know. The place where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet is choppy water, wind, and wonderful. Enroute stop in for a tour of the Falkland Islands,sail on and take a train ride along a quiet river...

This has got to be the worst value contrived tourist attraction in South America. It starts off well at a pseudo early 20th century railway station with lots of artefacts and staff dressed in period uniforms. Then you climb on board small 'restored' carriages on the narrow gauge railway hauled by small steam engines. There is one stop along the... More
