If you're traveling to Argentina, the Beagle Channel is a must see. It's unbelievably beautiful and tranquil -- the terrain is like no other I've seen. Of course, make sure you go during the summer b/c it is outrageously cold - the island is windy and much colder than the mainland.

Should you ever have the opportunity to cruise down in this part of the world, don't, I repeat don't second guess yourself. Weather permitting this is hands down the most beautiful part of the colder part of the world. The wild life is abundant and the scenery is spectacular! Should you want a very relaxing trip, book a cruise to... More

Ushuaia is among the most beautiful land I have ever seen and when seen from the sea it's just wonderful! The cruise along the Beagle channel, through islands, sea life, light-house and the mountains in the back ground worth every single second, dollar and frostbite. The boat was very comfortable, with a cafeteria within, nice staff and a splendid view... More

Amazing views from the channel--gorgeous mountains all around, sea lions, cormorants, and so many other birds. Incredibly picturesque but yes as others have noted the sea is very rough. Be sure to have your seasickness patches if you are affected by that!
