If you're in Ushuaia, you can't really miss seeing this bay. It's possible to cruise the Beagle channel from here - you can walk up and down the bay which runs parallel to the main street, San Martin Ave, one block away. If you walk all the way west, you'll find the Plaza Malvinas. Following a dirt road, you can... More

Ushuaia means "east bay" in the local language; the suffix "aia" refers to a bay. The small city climbing a small hill at the bottom of Argentine Patagonia serves as the starting or ending point for cruises or treks. There is just one main street lined with shops, loaded with hiking gear in case you forgot to pack something, and... More

While staying two weeks in Ushuaia (waiting for an Antarctica cruise) we spent some time in around the bay. A wide, well surfaced path provides access to most of the bay - with a dusty bit that is still easily traversed that takes you to the other side of the bay, providing you with another view of the bay. The... More

Ushuaia is the port city for Antarctica tours. All the ships leave from here so the city has grown to take care of a healthy tourist industry. Some eating to recommend: the giant king crabs at Freddie's Crab house, any of the barbecue cafes and restaurants...but be careful..the portions are huge...we shared one order. And don't worry about souvenirs...Ushuaia is... More

Ushuaia being the southernmost city in the world already has that reputation, but how about you prove you have been there, by having your passport stamped? There are a number of locations to obtain these but the ones I have (3 in total), are the official notations from the city's post office. I arrived in Ushuaia on a cruise ship... More

I have returned from travelling to Ushuaia. Wonderful Port where the boats to Antarctica travel from. Then boat to Antarctica is amazing... Very adventurous. Those gorgeous penguins.

Went there with SilverSea. Beautiful location and scenery. Loved the catamaran ride, the train ride in Tierra de Fuego, and the colorful city.

I visited Ushuaia as a cruise stop on the way around the bottom of South America. I thought Ushuaia was a quaint town. I undertook an excursion, via catamaran out to the lighthouse on the Beagle channel, and to the small Islands housing seals and seabirds. This is a great photo opportunity and I managed to get some amazing shots... More

Never thought the end of the world would be such a beautiful place! A must see for anyone who likes nature, mountains, lakes and history. It's a small town, full of very interesting histories, some bad like the prison and burned forest, some epic like conquest, mapping and exploration of Patagonia. Everybody should come at least one, but if possible,... More

I visited Ushuaia in September, expecting to see much snow, but the city was totally clear of it, but the streets near the port were muddy. The bay has a decent boardwalk, but if you go too far to the West you end up at the city's open sewage, and that is a shame. Besides that, an interesting place to... More
