Tierra del Fuego

Located off the southernmost tip of the South American mainland, Tierra del Fuego “Land of Fire” is an archipelago which consists of the main island, Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, and a group of many islands, including Cape Horn and Diego Ramirez Islands. The archipelago is divided between Chile and Argentina. Its landscape boasts scoured plains and forests to snowy ranges above the Beagle Channel. Travellers usually descend in droves to fly fish, hike and begin Antarctic cruises.

If you live in the UK, you might want to book your tour with Llama Travel, which pairs high quality holidays with the lowest prices possible. It has been recognized as one of the UK's leading operators of holidays to Latin America.
The tour operator claims on its website that “Llama Travel was set up by Luca Newbold, who lived in Peru for 4 years and travelled around much of Latin America. When he returned to the UK, he left with the belief that everyone should experience this amazing region at least once in their lifetime. So, along with the former managing director of Thomson Holidays, he set up Llama Travel with the aim of making holidays to Latin America more affordable. We only offer holidays to Latin America so we can focus on ensuring we are able to offer the best possible holidays to these countries.”
They describe visiting the island of Tierra del Fuego as travelling to the end of the world. “Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city, is located on the Beagle Channel, with jagged peaks, glaciers and forest rising up behind the city. The city was founded in 1884 by an English missionary, and the English influence is still visible.”
