How to Spend 1 Day in Ushuaia

How to Spend 1 Day in Ushuaia

The busy port city and adventure hub of Ushuaia is often referred to as the “end of the world” for its far southern setting in the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego. From the glacial peaks of the Fuegian Andes to the icy Beagle Channel, stunning scenery abounds. Here’s how to make the most of it.

Morning: Tierra del Fuego National Park

Kick off your visit to the world’s southernmost city with an excursion to the world's southernmost national park. Tierra del Fuego National Park is home to glaciers, lakes, mountains, and abundant wildlife. You can travel there by bus or by the famed End of the World Train, which follows the route of the original convict train that ran in Ushuaia from 1910 to 1947. You’ll learn more about the history of the region as the train travels along the coastline of the Beagle Channel, passing by sparkling bays, snow-capped peaks, and emerald forest. Tours typically include time to disembark and walk along nature paths and explore the landscape.

Afternoon: Penguin Rookery or the City

You can spend your afternoon in the company of Magellanic and gentoo penguins by taking a tour to Martillo Island on the Beagle Channel. Tours are typically led by naturalist guides who provide insight into the behavior of the penguins, as well as other birds including skuas, petrels, cormorants, vultures, and South American terns. Alternatively, you can stay in the city and take a tour of Ushuaia. Bus tours typically take visitors to the La Mission neighborhood to learn about the European settlers who made their homes there and into notable public buildings and museums. Some city tours include a trip to Le Martial Glacier.

Night: Evening Snow Adventures

Dive into Patagonia’s winter wonderland with an evening tour that embraces the region’s powdery terrain. Combination evening tours typically include snowshoeing across iced-over lakes, snowmobiling through rugged terrain, and dogsledding through forest, and are rounded out with a visit to a local restaurant for a traditional Argentine asado (barbecue) dinner. Afterward, you can warm up and toast a great day in Ushuaia with a visit to the wine bars and restaurants lining the city’s central Avenida San Martín.
