  • Before we reach the Estancia Harberton, the van that took us stopped on the way to take pictures of the famous trees flag, which are shaped by the strong Patagonian winds. Arriving at the Estancia, were well attended with hot chocolate and cake. Not to be missed!

  • We were passing on an excursion. Okay, but you don't lose too much. The way to get there is cute. In the room you can take hot chocolate and cake. Take some pictures and there is a museum which I didn't visit for reasons of time of the excursion.

  • Wonderful place to visit. Wish I could have spent more time there. The guides and researchers made the visit that more fascinating. Highly recommended.
  • The tourist place more extremely souththerm position, stunning and really magic place. Has a restaurant and Fish Museum.
  • Beautiful place... as all the Argentina, my assessment is now established to the owner... go! ... to the grandson of the usurper, such a T, who lived under a bridge (hence Tomas bridge) the truth I thought that slavery had ended! The somewhat discriminatory and quite contemptuous boy with tourists and employees. Another of the "English" dinosaurs that inhabit the South! So sad.

  • Cute place. This stay out the boat to go to Martillo Island, where are the penguins. That's great

  • A part of the history of Ushuaia, and exciting life is of the Bridges family.

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.
