Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego

Visit Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego

Introduction

Tierra del Fuego is the southernmost province of Argentina, separated from the rest of the country by the Strait of Magellan. The province shares the island of Isla Grande with Chile, but its territory extends to the eastern Isla de los Estados and, controversially, the Malvinas - known to most as the Falkland Islands.

Tierra del Fuego is where the Americas meet the Southern Ocean and from where Antarctic expedition cruises depart. From the frontier-like provincial capital, Ushuaia, it's just 600 miles across the Drake Passage to Antarctica.

Ushuaia is the world's southernmost city, sat on a sweeping bay with the Martial Mountain range to the north and the Beagle Channel to the south. The beautiful surroundings include the nearby Parque National Tierra de Fuego, home to bird species including the torrent duck and distinctive redheaded Magellanic woodpecker. Staying in one of Ushuaia's B&Bs and exploring this wondrous end of the world on a luxury cruise is a memorable way to spend a few days during an Argentina holiday.
