The history of the region explains the growth of Ushuaia towards the end of the XIXth century when a jail was settled. The convicts were obliged to work in the worst conditions collecting stones and wood to build the city. To speed up the work process it was also built a railway that connected the jail with the forest.
Part of this railway was restored and you will be able to ride a comfortable train to appreciate the landscape and imagine the many stories that the forest hides.
