Ushuaia – Southernmost City in the World

The capital city of Tierra del Fuego, Argentine Antartica and the South Atlantic Islands, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and the gateway to Antartica which is located just 1000km away. Situated along the coast of the Beagle Channel and backed by spectacular Fuegan Andes peaks, the natural landscape here – as in much of Patagonia – is stunning. Once a key naval base and port city, today tourism drives the city’s economy and many different types of travelers end up here including backpackers, cruisers, the Antartica-bound and those undertaking South American biking, motorcycling or driving journeys. Ushuaia’s main attraction is simply being at the edge of the world – especially rewarding after having traveled across the continent – and it’s here that many travelers choose to end their South American journeys. As for us, we still have a long way to go, but that didn’t stop us from spending a few days in Ushuaia celebrating our arrival and admiring the magnificent beauty of the region.
