One of the most attractive -and increasingly popular- activities in Tierra del Fuego is bird-watching. The main tourist agencies know how to guide visitors to special circuits for them to get the best sights.

Pingüinos Papua- Ushuaia Patagonia TravelOne of the well-known circuits starts in Rio Grande, a city in the province of Santa Cruz, where the tourist is welcomed at the airport and transferred to his/her accommodations.
