Les Éclaireurs Lighthouse Reviews
A metà circa del tragitto che da Ushuaia porta a la Pinguinera si trova il faro della fine del mondo. Molto suggestivo. Se siete fortunati potrete trovare proprio sotto al faro dei leoni marini. more »About halfway from Ushuaia to the Penguin is the lighthouse of the end of the world. Very impressive. If you're lucky you'll find it right under the sea lion lighthouse.
De zeehonden liggen daar heerlijk bij elkaar, zoeken elkaar daar op voor de broodnodige warmte, want het Is koud in Ushuaia, de weg er naar toe is ca 16. Km! Ook vele vogelsoorten te zien en te fotogr... more »The seals are very close together, look for each other for much needed warmth, because it Is cold in Ushuaia, the road there is about 16. Km! Also many bird species to see and photograph because you can get there nearby!
This is the favorite meeting point for cormorants and seals, they are happily stinking and flying all around the the rock and the lighthouse. I would suggest to stop on the way to the penguin island and not to make a trip just to come here. Sunset was lovely!
The southern most light house of the world. It is an amazing site. Must visit
