  • Beautiful Amazing place
  • Beautiful large lake in the National Park, which is divided by the Chile/Argentina border. Mild spring climate, in summer many mosquitoes. In any case worth a 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.
