About Ushuaia

Ushuaia is the access town to the Beagle Channel and the great hiking and kayaking opportunities available in Tierra del Fuego. Many travellers stay here before going to see the islands many sea lion colonies and penguin rookeries as well as hopping off on a 2 or 3 day kayaking trip around Gable Island in the Beagle Channel.

Antarctic Port


It's even better well known as the port from which most Antarctic cruises depart for Antarctic sea adventures of up to 20 days. The cruises first cross the Drake Passage before reaching the South Shetland Islands or South Georgia and Sandwich Islands.

Instead of setting out from the port of Ushuaia, some cruises start off in the Falkland Islands, spending a day or two enjoying its markets, restaurants and flora and fauna, before heading towards the coast of Antarctica and other ships instead offer a fly and cruise option from the Chilean Patagonia town of Punta Arenas, straight through to the Antarctic research base called King George Island.



This is the perfect place to stay before you set out on your adventures in Tierra del Fuego.
