the southernmost city of the world, is the capital of the province of Tierra del
Fuego, Antártida and South Atlantic Islands.
Situated on the border of the Beagle Canal and surrounded by the Mounts Martial,
this city offers a unique landscape in Argentina made up of mountains, sea,
glaciers and woods.
Its capricious topography has generated an extremely picturesque city that
combines colours and unevenness with the silhouette of the Andes Mountain Range
as background. it is important to note the building contrast between the
modern constructions and the wooden houses with gabled sheet metals that give it
a particular characteristic.
Its climate, in spite of its geographical situation, is not as severe as it
seems, since both the mountains and the sea soften it. In winter, the snowy
landscape changes its physiognomy. There are several winter centres for the
practice of cross-country skiing; and in the central part of Mount Castor,
Alpine skiing can be practised.
The summer season is ideal for the adventure tourism activities such as
trekking, horseback riding, mountain byke, sporting fishing and the most
astounding tours along the Beagle Canal, Cape Horn and even the Argentine
Antártida. During this season, several cruises reach the port of Ushuaia
bringing numberless groups of tourists willing to meet all these attractions.
The city comprises a very good lodging and gastronomic
infrastructure, where you can try the traditional fueguina spider crab
surrounded by the frame of a prodigious nature.
