An incredible mix of nature and history
There is much to do in Tierra del Fuego: hiking, sailing, kayaking and scuba diving are but a few of the activities on offer here. From Ushuaia, travellers can continue their adventures towards the Beagle Channel to see marine life or towards the Darwin Cordillera, a hiker's paradise.
Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, only a few west kilometres from Usuaia, is ideal for wildlife tours. Birdlife is prolific here, especially along the coastal zone. Martillo Island, a short boat ride away, is home to a colony of penguins and a large variety of birds such as cormorants, condors, petrels and gulls.
With rich history and culture, Ushuaia is full of exciting things to do like visiting the “Museum at the End of the World” or the Maritime Museum in an old prison. Its local cuisine, with abundant fresh-caught seafood, is also an unmissable holiday experience in the Patagonian region.
