Named so by the ancient settlers who would see the bonfires of the extinct natives on the other side of the Magellan Strait, Tierra del Fuego flaunts with the diversity of its ecosystem.
Through a brief voyage by flatboat from Punta Delgada, colonies of penguins can be seen and forests that by the coming of springtime, after the melting of snow, change their leaves from red dusks to a most intense green.
Its provincial capital is Porvenir, name derived from the fumaroles lit by the Selknam people which could be seen from the opposite side of the Magellan Strait. Of steep slopes where guanacos (camelid native to South America) and baguales (wild horses) run free and condors hover the icy skies in wilderness. Land of diversity, where settlers who wagered to work, in such an extreme place alongside the native ancestors, created a unique character in such an inhospitable but wonderful region.
