City of Ushuaia: end of the world, beginning of everything

The city of Ushuaia, in Tierra del Fuego, offers varied experiences that marvel to visitors. Know her.

Tierra del Fuego
Ciudad de Ushuaia fin del mundo

Ushuaia, Patagonia, Argentina... Three names that arouse the fantasy of thousands of people around the world. That mythical region, far away, immense. When visiting it, the visitor can observe the movement of Mother Earth. Finishing the Patagonian steppe, already in the Province of  Tierra del Fuego , Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands,  Cordillera de los Andes  is imposed on the landscape showing glacial valleys, peatlands, millennial forests to finally reach a paradise in the south.  Ushuaia , unique city. Capital of the Province that offers its natural beauties, cultural, service infrastructure so that those who know it never forget it.

The images are shocking. Colors all year round. The blue of summer; the ochres of autumn; the white of winter and the green of spring.  Ushuaia , the southernmost city in the world invites you to know, live and enjoy it intensively at any time.

A bit of history

Ushuaia celebrates her birthday on October 12. Why? Back in 1884 the expedition led by Commodore Augustus Lasserre created the Ushuaia Subprefecture on the banks of the Beagle Canal. For the first time the Argentine flag is raised in these latitudes. From that time until today the city has developed starting as a small village with a hundred inhabitants to become in the current thriving town with almost one hundred thousand permanent inhabitants and visiting around five hundred thousand tourists a year.

Martial Glacier, so close

Glacier Martial is an attraction near the city ideal for a half-day stroll. Its wide trail shows along its 900 m imposing views of  Ushuaia . With the winter snowfall it becomes an excellent place for beginners of alpine sky and  snowboarding . On the other hand, the summer landscapes allow for a beautiful  hiking experience.

What is observed touring the waterfront?

The Bahía Encerrada Urban Nature Reserve is a natural, historical, cultural, bird nesting environment. Today, an example of environmental remediation. It offers beautiful views of the city through a tour with viewpoints that make it possible to feel close to nature.

The characteristic Saint Christopher is a ship stranded on the shores of the Beagle Canal for almost a century. He came here with the mission to participate in the rescue of the cruise ship Monte Cervantes that shipwrecked in its waters. Unfortunately, he could not achieve this as part of the coastal landscape today.

The Paseo de los Artesanos located in Plaza 25 de Mayo is the place where local artisans gather to offer to the public their regional articles made of lenga wood, weaving looms, products with sheep wool, stones and other elements where the images of the city are reflected.

The mythical sign of Welcome to the City of the End of the World is averaging the coastal route. With the Beagle Channel as the background of a unique painting.

Ushuaia is a city Gateway to  Antarctica . The Paseo de los Pioneros Antarctica is a tour where you can see the faces of the brave expeditioners who dared to step on the White Continent in the 19th and 20th centuries.
