  • Estancia Harberton makes a great day out, from Ushuaia. I drove there, and it is almost impossible to guess where to turn off the main road, so - for anyone trying the same excursion: the turn-off is ...  more »
  • The Estancia is a good stopping point for visit to Isla Martillo that has a capacity limit of 20 people at a time. While waiting in Estancia, the island also has a Maritime Museum, with bones of whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, among others, for those who want to learn a little about their habits, characteristics and other details that the researchers working at the Museum . The Estancia has a restaurant offering few dining options, but all delicious, but the fingers classico. Worth knowing!

  • 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.

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.
