Tierra del Fuego represents South America’s extreme south, with its most important city (Ushuaia, Argentina) perhaps the most southerly city in the world.

Divided between Argentina and Chile, TDF is an archipelago of islands separated from the mainland by the Magellan Strait.

The western parts of the archipelago form the southernmost tip of the Andes range.

The eastern parts are an extension of the Patagonian plateau.

A key destination is Tierra del Fuego National Park – a rugged, mountainous national park with great views of Lapataia Bay.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
