    Ushuaia

     

    This morning, you’ll have a very early pickup for your 1 hr 30 min flight to Ushuaia (departs at 8 am), the “End of the World.” Upon arrival at the airport in Ushuaia, a driver will pick you up and transfer you to your hotel and you’ll be free to explore the city and the surroundings at your leisure.

     

    Ushuaia is a small town, and it is really easy to get around on foot. The Yamanas, its first inhabitants, called it Ushuaia which means “protected bay” in their language. It was officially incorporated into the Republic of Argentina in 1884, and it soon became a penal colony to establish a permanent Argentine settlement.

     

    Surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty, including snow-capped mountains, pristine forests, and winding fjords, Ushuaia serves as the gateway to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The city is a hub for adventure activities, offering opportunities for hiking, skiing, sailing, and wildlife watching in nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park. Visitors can explore the city’s maritime and indigenous history at museums such as the Maritime Museum and the End of the World Museum. Additionally, Ushuaia’s charming downtown area boasts eclectic shops, cozy cafes, and seafood restaurants serving freshly caught Patagonian delicacies.
