    Very close to the Centre, in an environment surrounded by the Beagle Channel and the snowy mountains, you can go walking, drink mate, taking many pictures, you can see the city of Ushuaia and the yacht from the perspective of the canal club

    A small mirror of water was "locked up" close to the canal and at the foot of the city. In its banks if there is snow, it becomes a fun place for children

    Indescribable beauty. Extreme stillness. Unique landscape which combines sea, mountains and Andean vegetation with ñires, lengas and guindos of Magellan.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
