We took a cruise and the boat traveled across the beagle channel. We watch the local fauna ( sea lions, birds)on some rocky Island and the journey ends near another Island where the lignite house was build

Visited during a cruise on the Beagle channel on the last day of my trip. It makes a nice contrast between the surrounding landscape. Usually this is the turning point of the cruises in the channel, and the small rocky islets full of fauna are a nice complement for the trip.

we got to see this light house on our catamaran ride. kudos to the boat guys. they place the boat in several different angles and stop around so that everyone gets pics of themselves with this light house in the back ground

This was the turning point of the boat trip we took out of Ushuaia. The weather was very variable mainly snow showers and grey sky. The lighthouse is situated in the middle of the Beagle channel and was a good contrast of red and white against a backdrop of grey. We enjoyed the trip as there was a lot of... More

It was interesting to know what it means when you get to the 'farol'. It's a historical mark for the End ohf the World. nice island and feels good to go out in the channel. I learnt a lot from these cruises.

you come very near to it, with the ship, and it startles to know that it still functions ....it´s an oddity to tell your friends that you´ve been at a place like this one.... and if you think when it was built well then... you really understand why it´s a view that you should take in your photo album

They call this the Fin del Mundo (End of the World) but it's just the beginning of a beautiful journey through some of Mother Nature's finest scenery. Ushuia is fun to say. And it's proud to be the southern-most city in the known world. They outfit adventurers and fishermen and scientists for trips to Antarctica. But it's also the port... More
