All varieties of wildlife and scenery. We had the time of our lives just traveling around this area. During m,any seasons there are sea lions, seals, a multitude of birds, and even penguins.

I must agree with another reviewer that this is an interesting town to visit. In reality, if you can make it this far South in the world, you should try to stay more than a couple of days. Yes, it is right, the longer you stay in a city, the more you get accustomed to it & the more you can find things to do. You can choose among the various tours, which most tourists will take & in my opinion, they are worth it. Some expeditions to Antarctica start from this town but you need a longer stay for those. But you can go hiking, visit museums & if you talk to locals you will discover more places to visit or things to do. One very unusual characteristic of Ushuaia is that you are looking at the beautiful Andes scenery everywhere you look & it is impressive how close & majestic they look, some of them with snow caps & depending where you look at, you might be looking at Chile. A trip to neighboring Chile is not that far & easily done. Tierra de Fuego is a mixture of things & people & it is hard to describe it. It is not cheap & people earn better salaries in this city of approx. 30,000 people. It's interesting that this city was born from a prison that was built many years ago. We spent here 3 nights but wished we would have stayed longer. …

A great place to visit. Promoted as The End of the World - this remote destination is the last city before the Antarctic and expedition vessels can be seen in the harbour. The city is small and walkable with a limited range of shops, cafés and restaurants. The main attractions are the nearby national parks with their stunning scenery & wildlife and The End of the World prison which was a remote & dreadful prison upto the mid twentieth century. There is a small craft market near the harbour selling local handicrafts and the harbour is visited by a few cruise ships en route to the Antarctic. This is a remote Argentinian city at the end of the South American continent which is very close to Chile and is an interesting place to visit.…
