Tierra Del Fuego
South America's largest island, Isla Grande del Tierra del Fuego, clocks in at 18,572 square miles and is split between Chile and Argentina, who jointly oversee its dramatic scenery. The island is home to both Chile's newest national park, Parque Nacional Yendegaia, and Argentina's first shoreline national park, Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego; as well as Ushuaia, the southernmost city on the world. From the ship, eye the Chilean side, home to the funky Fuegian outpost of metal-clad Victorian homes, Porvenir.
