#4 of 28 in Outdoors in Ushuaia
Sail along the coastline of Ushuaia Bay, featuring a backdrop of snowcapped mountains and offering access to small islands with thousands of birds, penguin colonies, and seals. Try to spot orcas, sea lions bathing in the sun, and albatrosses smoothly gliding through the air along the way. Visit the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, which is often mistaken for the "Lighthouse at the End of the World" from Jules Verne's novel of the same title. Dress adequately, with plenty of layers, a hood, and warm gloves. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Ushuaia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ushuaia Bay and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    You don't want to miss the boat ride that leads to this tourist spot. Is very worthwhile. Also other interesting points as the island of the sea lions and penguins

    Note the company southbound, we use la.cual, was a unique navigation very comfortable a spectacular day, stop at an island and after that go to where it is possible to sea lions and penguins... . That is a very nice recommended experience!

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.
