When Do You Want To Go?

Situated at the Southern tip of Argentina, and fondly known as 'El Fin del Mundo' or the End of the World, Ushuaia is set on a bay off Isla Grande between the Beagle Channel and towering glacial peaks of Cerro Martial and Monte Olivia, a location that few places in the world can match.

As the capital city of Tierra Del Fuego, 3220 kilometres from Buenos Aires, Ushuaia is also the principal gateway to Antarctica, and is an important town that caters well for visitors, offering an array of activities in and around the surrounding area. Some would say that it is merely a large town rather than a city as its population is about 60,000 people. Having said that, Ushuaia is full of character, offering a rich outdoor life, and a surprisingly cosmopolitan feel to it.

Tourism is naturally, one of the main industries in Ushuaia and there are some beautiful hotels, and very pleasant restaurants and shops to explore. The main street is Avenida San Martin which is the main focus of Ushuaias restaurants and nightlife, particularly in Summer when Ushuaias streets are plentiful with cruising tourists and travellers alike. After yearsof economic growth in Argentina and Ushuaia itself, this provincial capital is always improving. Once a penal colony and naval base, the fishing, tourist and manufacturing boom changed the appearance of the city and the waterfront area has been regenerated and some of its more historical buildings have been restored to give Ushuaia its own unique personality.

The Tierra del Fuego National Park is also situated next to Ushuaia and  the attractive local areas offer the chance for visitors to participate in more adventurous activities and Ushuaia is now an ideal destination for wildlife viewing, fishing, skiing, hiking, biking, dining and shopping.
