Tierra del Fuego
It is not far from the park to the southernmost point on the PanAmerican Highway. Here are a couple of pictures from along that drive:

Pan American Highway
This sign marks the southern end of the Pan American Highway which begins in Alaska. It runs the length of the Americas, although it is not passable in the rain forests of Panama. The Pan American Highway reaches Tierra del Fuego as Route 3.
At the bottom of the sign it says: "You are here. End of Route 3."
And if you turn to look south beyond the sign, this is the view. The continuous land ends and there are only islands to the south until you reach Antarctica.
