Both sweet water lakes, located at the other side of Cordillera Los Andes. Escondido is much smaller but windy than Fagnano, an amazing and huge lake with wonderful views to see and enjoy the forest around it.
We went on a 4x4 tour, passing by the Mirador (absolutely amazing view of the lake and the mountais surrounding it) and the when we got down below to the lake, we walked along the lake shore. Very beautiful!
Wow, we had a fantastic day, cruising through the Magellan Straits, docking at Ushuaia (last Town at the end of the earth) .. what a fantastic trip we had, the weather was with us all the way!!!!... the mountains, snow tops and glaciers were just...More
Worth the scenic drive from Ushuaia to absorb the tranquillity of the extensive beech forests, overlooked by the snow-covered peaks of Fuegian Andes. Some 30 years ago, beavers were introduced to the region, and an explosion in their population is evident in the proliferation of...More

Ushuaia is the gateway to Antarctica else why are you there? other than the furthest one can go on land excluding Cape Horn Anyway I highly recommend Heliushuaiar for helicopter ride .I chose Andes landing but unfortunately due to bad weather I did not land above snow line but still landed on the Andes .Check out website for other options I booked through Rumbo Sur tourist office 350 San Martin Ushuaia. They speak good English and can converse with you easily Some tourist offices in Ushuaia have no English speaking personal makes it a bit hard Try not to book through your accommodation as they will charge more but up to you.
As to End of the World Train if you are on limited time and like hiking I would do a half day hike to the glacier which is easy access from town.Else book a day hike to Emerald Lagoon or the like.
You can see part of the National Park in a day you just have to choose what part you want to see A train ride ,a hike or a tour ?
I saw Hidden Lake while on a 4 X 4 day tour which again was booked through Rumbo Star
Penguins there are tours that offer the seeing of penguins but again check the timing and length of tours and always remember penguins are animals and no one can predict what you will see when animals are involved
I saw penguins in Antarctica so did not feel a need to pay to see more penguins
Also if you take your passport to the tourist office down by the harbor they will stamp for you
Not much in Ushuaia itself unless you like tourist shops But they all close noon - 3pm and then reopen 4 - 9/10 pm (dont ask about the hour in between I asked and was never told I think the shopkeepers are getting ready to reopen) for siesta even the tourist office and some do not open on weekends so best check beforehand
Not sure where you are from or how much of the world you have seen but I will warn you of the street dogs they are friendly but as I am a dog lover it did break my heart to see some of the condition of the dogs Most are owned by the shopkeepers and when they come to work the dogs just roam and go home with them of a night There is also a strong police presence in the streets.
All above is based on my experience when I was there for 4 days in March 2018 but hope that this helps with your enquiry
Happy and safe trails
