Ushuaia Mini Trip
If you've always wanted to travel to the end of the world, visit Ushuaia on Tierra del Fuego Island! Located on the Beagle Channel, it is the southernmost city in the world, and will surely be a highlight on your Argentina trip. Immerse yourself at the museum about the End of the World (Museo del Fin del Mundo) and learn about the history of this region. Also learn about one of the many trails at this southernmost National Park of Argentina with its fjords, lakes, glaciers and other landscape features.
Starting from Buenos Aires, you'll take a three hour flight to the southernmost city in the world. At the airport of Ushuaia, you will be met by our staff and brought to your hotel. Ushuaia is the capital of Tierra del Fuego and lies between the Andes and the Beagle Channel. You're able to use the afternoon as you please. We encourage strolling down the main street, San Martin, with a wide selection for food and souvenirs. Other reccommendations include the old prison, the "End of the World" museum, and the harbor.

Today is a very special excursion. After breakfast, you will be taken to the local harbor with your guide. From there, you'll start your five-hour expedition through the Beagle Channel, the famous route used in the 19th century by Charles Darwin. You'll pass by various small islands and may even see sea lions! The expedition takes you to the Isla de los Pajaros, on which many species of birds have settled. You'll be getting off at the next island and you'll have the chance to explore the countryside. When you arrive back at the port of Ushuaia, you have the rest of the day to do anything you desire. We recommend visiting the National Park, which stands out by its special vegetation of Tierra del Fuego, consisting of mosses and woods.
