  • 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.

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

  • "The ultimate ends of the Earth", is the title of the book written by Esteban Lucas Bridges, third non-Aboriginal born in the area of son of Thomas Bridges, the founder of the Estancia Harberton and Ushuaia. That's the feeling when you visit this place. If Ushuaia is the city at the end of the world, Harberton is "beyond".
