traces of the former inhabitants of Patagonia/Fireland ??

for a video-project I would need to know what traces are there still to be found of the former native inhabitants of Fireland/ Tierra del Fuego.
I remember the murals on the post-office of Ushuaia,and the Salesianer Museum and Magellan - monument in Punta Arenas but there must be more for sure :
Maybe an old cemetery, maybe some open-air-museum of old huts/dwellings ?
are there still places, where it is possible to learn their old language ?
thanks a lot in advance !

How do I get to Cape Horn ?

I am traveling to Argentina for 3 weeks in early Nov '06. I plan to spend 2 weeks in Patagonia, and would love to go to Cape Horn. I have search the internet extensively but can only find one way to get to see the Cape from Ushuaia.

This is a very expensive cruise ship between Ushuaia and Puntas Arenas called the Via Australis and the Mare Australis.

Does anybody know of a way to go to Cape Horn from Ushuaia ?

Thanks ,

Tierra del Fuego National Park  (2 Answers)

What is the best way to visit Tierra del Fuego National Park? We will be staying in Ushuaia. I've read several posts that say riding the train is not the best way to see the park, but we do not plan to camp or hike. Is there any other transportation or way to see the park? Or is it best to ride the train if we don't plan to hike?
Thank you.

travel around Argentina + Chile  (3 Answers)

Hi there,
i am thinking to make a long trip to know a bit more about the "cono sur" and my idea is to travel from Buenos Aires, where i have family, to the end of the world (until Usuahia) and then i would like to go up to Santiago de Chile... is there any way to go by bus from Rio gallegos (or around) and cross to Chile to travel up to Santiago?
I have checked the bus line: but i should have to come back on the same way, i would like to be able to go from rio gallegos to bariloche or chile

I was also wondering: is possible to do this kind of trip in July? i dont think so...too much snow and storm, right?

thanks *:)

Any tips/recommendations on tours to the glaciers? How do we get there from El Calafate and back? Expensive?

avoiding chile  (10 Answers)

Hi everyone, I would like to go from El Calafate to Ushaia next week(I kind of wait for the last minute to plan things). I would really like to avoid Chile and the100 entry fee, does anyone know if there is a ferry along the east coast perhaps Rio Gallegos to Tierra del Fuego or any information about flights from El Calafate to Ushaia. If I happen to be wrong about having to pay the100 visa fee just to cross this area, I would appreciate that information too. Thanks so much Barb

Need help planning a budget trip with lots of bang

I am planning a trip to Argentina in late Sept, early Oct 2004 and will be doing so on a budget. I likely will fly in from Kansas to Miami, and then from Miami to BA. I love adventure and exploration and want to spend most of my time seeing all of the things we don't have in Kansas! (Which leaves things wide open, I suppose). I would really like to see the wildlife at Peninsula Valdes, the glaciers at Los Glaciares and also want to visit Tierra del Fuego. Snowboarding in the Andes would also be a real plus. I can probably take off 11 to 12 days for the entire trip. I will be on a tight budget (I can't spend any more that1500 per person, or3000 for the two of us) and certainly don't require fancy accomodations or anything. In fact, I thought it might be fun to stay at a bed and breakfast or two. So, here are my questions: 1. Timewise, is this at all possible? 2. Moneywise, is this at all possible? 3. How much time should I allot for each location? 4. How, considering my budget and time, should I travel from one location to the next? Plane? Car? Bus? And, can you specify any particular companies I should use? 5. Should I be using a travel agent, and if so do you have any suggestions? 6. Am I forgetting anything super important? Thanks in advance for you input. If you want to email me directly, you can do so at [email] Shari
