While it might sound like a television network dedicated to videos of adorable dogs, Canal Beagle is actually a strait at the extreme southern tip of South America. The channel offers excellent wildlife watching, with plenty of cormorants and sea lions populating its waters. You can take a boat cruise to explore glacial offshoots and wild southern landscapes close to the edge of the continent, beyond which only Antarctica lies.

  • Boat trip in the beagle channel, for those who don't get sick much, it's like a documentary of the Natgeo. The scenarios are dramatic, the boat goes through several islands full of seals, sea lions, birds, and goes to the Lighthouse at the end of the world, which is the symbol of Ushuaia. I went with family on the boat Patagonia Explorer, which is a smaller boat for 30 people, very nice, because it comes closer to the Islands. For those who get sick much, better go catamaran, but the groups are larger and the catamarans don't come so close to the Islands and the lighthouse. A must ride an afternoon (approximately 3 hours), for those who love nature and views. The photos speak for themselves.

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.
