Areas & Neighborhoods in Ushuaia

Lying between the Martial mountains and the coast of the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia reflects the divide between its early days as a prison colony and its modern life as a tourist hub and a stopover on the way to Antarctica. The city's downtown features neat, square blocks where modern developments stand alongside rustic storefronts, while newer neighborhoods sprawl inland with houses perched on hilltops as roads wind around the rugged terrain.

What to See in Ushuaia

The waters of Ushuaia Bay are a constant presence along the edge of the city, with landmarks ranging from the World War II-era tugboat that rests grounded in the harbor to the iconic lighthouse of Les Eclaireurs on a little rocky island. You can visit the garden dedicated to Eva Perón at the Government House or hang out with the energetic sled dogs in the Valley of Wolves.

The wilderness of Tierra del Fuego looms large in almost every part of life in Ushuaia, and your hosts here can line up plenty of ways to help you see it. You can go off-roading over the Garibaldi Pass and take a canoe out on Fagnano Lake, or follow the coast to Tierra del Fuego National Park and take a ride on the world's southernmost railway. The sea lions and penguins of the Beagle Channel await you during a scenic cruise, or you can join a guide for a city tour if you'd like to learn a bit more about this community that sprung up near the ends of the earth.
