#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.

  • Bay which is located part of the city of Ushuaia. Full view can be enjoyed from catamarans when the navigation is done by the Beagle Channel, or by air when you arrive to this city...

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.
