  • I was not pleased, it is not the best visit. I would recommend the trip through the National Park of tierra del fuego province

  • Part of the Beagle Channel navigation package + visit to the penguins. Piratour Agency, paid $ $140 per person in the shop of the Centre, cheaper than the internet. Take along a camera and treat yourself!

  • Furthest light house in the Southern hemisphere in the Beagle Channel. Well, it is what it is, a light house! as part of our boat tour of the channel it was interesting.
  • In the middle of eagle channel which we passed by the boat. There were birds in this little island but all migrated out to another place because a disease rampant last year. This is probably the southernmost light house on earth. Although it has ceased to operate, the light house represent an era of the importance of Argentina. A historic relic it is...
  • Bellisimo
  • The end of the world is a bit nippy
  • Nice trip.

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.
