Ushuaia, located in Tierra del Fuego, is affectionately called “The End of the World”.  Located on the shores of Beagle Channel and surrounded by the Martial Mounts, it is the capital of Tierra del Fuego and the southernmost city in the world. Guests who journey to the End of the World are treated to the sea, mountains, and forests, all from one region. It is a shopper’s paradise as the entire island is a “tax free” zone, and there is a wide variety of imported and regional products from which you can choose.

Summer season is the ideal time of year to visit Tierra del Fuego if you are looking for outdoor adventure. Visitors can explore Tierra del Fuego National Park and all of its natural wonders, such as Lake Escondido and Lake Fagnano, as well as the Martial Glacier.

During the winter months, the name of the game is skiing.  Located at the southern tip of the Andes Mountain range, the region is surrounded by jagged peaks and lovely meadows covered deep in powder. Ski season officially opens on the evening of June 20, with the National Party of the Longest Night. This incredible celebration includes a walk with torches and is carried out by the locals and guests alike.

Cross country, the oldest of all the ski modalities, with its origin in the Nordic countries, is typical of this region, which was declared National Capital of Cross Country and Biathlon.
