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

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.

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
