Fabulous trip on the Beagle Channel looking at whales, sea lions, cormorants, a magellanic penguin colony and some wonderful scenery. If you have time, extending the trip to visit Estancia Harberton is very interesting, especially the marine museum.

Stand in one spot and look all around at the rugged mountains and the maritime flavor. From the viewpoint near the airport, you will have a panoramic view of the area - hope for a clear day.

This bay is the protagonist of many postcards and also of many rescues, in particular the first decades of the XX centuries when some boats were thrown by the storms into the beagle channel and they ended up on Ushuaia shores. There is an old boat sank in front of the bay memory of a last century war and after... More

The main reason to go to Ushuaia is because it is the gateway to Antarctica, just 700 miles or so across the infamous Drake Passage. Ushuaia is where most of the cruise/expedition ships debark from for Antarctica voyages. That's why we went to Ushuaia. The town has a frontier-adventure vibe. It's not much to look at, but the surrounding area... More

Hello from the bottom of the World. Ushuaia is one the the most Southern cities in South America; you are less than 800 miles north of Antarctica's most northern point. The weather here is cold, wet, and rainy; you will need warm clothing to visit Ushuaia. There is a lot to do and see while visiting,. We recommend the boat... More

My friend and I had an opportunity to fly over the Beagle Channel after we took a double-decker bus ride around town, which ended up over across the bay at the airport club. They will take you up in one of their planes (for reasonable fee, of course) to get a bird's eye view of the beautiful area of Ushuaia.... More

Once you are out of Ushuaia port into the bay and nearby islands, it is difficult to figure out when you're in Argentina or when you're in Chile! Not that it matters if you don't land! This is wild natural terrain with beautiful greens and the contrasting water which ranges from green to blue to turquoise - depending on the... More

That´s how it is effectively called - Fin del Mundo, End of the World. I suggest you consider going in July, at the height of winter. A July snowstorm tends to stay in one´s memory. What is even more important, the low sun and the southern latitudes create a remarkable kind of celestial illumination. Your camera will love it too,... More

Our ship docked just a sunrise and the buildings and mountains were a beautiful golden hue. It is the southernmost city in the world, but don't expect a major metropolis, it is a pleasant place to visit.

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
