  • The resort Harberton is a must on the penguins ' Rookery: a colony of giant penguins that sits on an Island belonging to the Office. In the resort itself there is a small Maritime Museum, a cafe and a restaurant. Important Tip: the café and the restaurant does not accept credit cards (no phone or internet on site) so if you want to eat something, get money!

  • Learn about the origins of the occupation of Ushuaia and experience the exuberant nature of the site. Guided tour of Nice, talking about the founding family, the House, the creators of sheep and wool production, and about the local fauna and flora. Tea house suitable for the time that we went. Small museum with bones of marine animals, visit is already included in the price of access to the Office. I find it interesting the tour to the penguins ' Rookery, coming out of there. Will be for the next opportunity, because we already did the navigation. We were in rental cars, on their own. Apart some 70 km from the Centre of Ushuaia, in rípia road, in good condition. The site also features a restaurant, but not experienced.
