Yendegaia National Park

In 2011, a new national park joined several others in the rich temperate rain forest region of Tierra del Fuego. Flush on the Argentine border, Chile’s 1,550-square-kilometer (600-square-mile) Yendegaia National Park lies on the Beagle Channel, into which its glaciers flow. Home to culpeo foxes and the last sub-Antarctic beech forest, a huge chunk of the park was a former cattle estate donated by the conservationist couple Kristine and (the late) Doug Tompkins.
