Overall Guide : Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and has, over the years, developed into a significant tourist hub. It is especially popular for nature and adventure tourism. Visitors can engage in a number of activities such as hiking, horse... more riding, fishing, climbing and diving. During the winter months, it is also a haven for many winter sports. Nature lovers should join one of the many expeditions to the nearby islands and glaciers. The Tierra del Fuego National Park is another major tourist attraction with a wide variety of plants and animals. Ushuaia is also a base for cruises to Antarctica. The old prison is now a museum called the Museo Marítimo y ex presidio de Ushuaia. Here you can learn more about Ushuaia’s culture and history.  Another major attraction is the Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino, which is an ancient steam locomotive with delightfully painted wagons. It takes visitors from Ushuaia station to the National Park.

Overall Guide : It's a city to be seen for what it is and for it's surroundings. It's the southernmost city in the world. Anyone who has read Sepulveda, Coloanne Cacucci can smell the trace of it here. Go during low-season. Don't count... more on seafood, it's inedible, completely different from Italy. The journey to Pinguinera.
