Ushuaia is a destination of travelers’ fantasies. The capital city of the province of Tierra del Fuego, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, filled with charm, history and legends of convicts, castaways and pirates who first came to this land and gave life to this picturesque place.
The main attractions include Tierra del Fuego National Park, the only reserve in Argentina combining mountain, forest and sea environments; the Beagle Channel, where the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans meet and
the terminal for aboard tours; and the Winter Resorts Road heading to the lakes region, with Mount Castor as the highlight. Winter offers include downhill skiing, snowboard, cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking, evening bonfires, and Siberian dog sledding, among other activities.
Ushuaia is also the gateway to Antarctica. In the summer season, several cruises set sail from the city port.
