Beautiful scenery

You must be out on the Bay to view the most amazing mountain ranges, they surround you almost 360 degrees. A must see.

Take the Bay and Beagle Channel trip and get the full monty of this amazing area. The guides give a full explanation of all sea life and land marks they come across.

The Ushuaia Bay is large and provides a nice panoramic view of the area, 360 degrees. Facing south the water blends into the sky, thus the Ushuaia Indians called the bay, "Where the water meets the sky".

We took a tour today of the bay and were able to see beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife (Cormorants, seals, sea lions, albatross, etc.). We also elected to go on one of the tours which stops at the penguin island - you do not get off boat, but the catamaran runs the pontoons aground a bit which gets you... More

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
