Facing the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia is honored with the curiousity-raising title of “Southernmost city in the world”…. and the only Argentinean city West of the Andes.
While the city itself has grown too quickly and in a somehow untidy way, it is much more than the main port for cruises to Antarctica. It has breathtaking views of the bay and the channel, nice bars and restaurants and is the ideal base to explore the wild, rugged and beautiful wilderness of its surroundings: snow-capped mountains, green valleys carpeted with flowers, stunning turquoise lakes, native forest which turn red and orange in autumn…
Rio Grande and its trout-filled rivers are the Mecca of anglers and Cape Horn continues to be the ultimate challenge for modern sailors. And everyone can enjoy pioneer ranches turned into cozy Estancias, horseback riding, hiking to a summit, 4WD to pristine lake Fagnano, a camp fire dinner to spy on wild beavers or indulge over a rewarding lobster dinner listening to stories and legends that keep the adventurous spirit of this Land of Fire alive for future generations as well.
