Ushuaia is the capital of Tierra del Fuego, Antártida e Islas del Atlántico Sur Province, Argentina. The city is located in a wide bay on the southern coast of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, bounded on the north by the Martial mountain range and on the south by the Beagle Channel.
Ushuaia is a place of many wonders. It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the famed Beagle Channel, and desolate wilderness. Its particularly enviable location has made Ushuaia a good starting point for both land and sea excursions, including hiking in the surrounding archipelago and cruises to Antarctica.
Aside from magnificent scenery, Ushuaia’s wildlife is one of the area’s biggest draws and many travel far and wide to marvel at whales, dolphins, sea lions, and the penguins found on nearby Yecapasela island. When you’re not admiring frosty glaciers, or touring local ranches, you could be knocking back a beer with the local fisherman, or riding the southernmost train in the world.
The cuisine at the “End of the World” is quite delicious, as the locals make the most of their surroundings. Expect to dine on local lamb, fresh seafood, and other Fuegian delights.
Since 2007 Ushuaia has hosted the Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo del Fin del Mundo (Biennial of Contemporary Art at the End of the World), created and organized by the Patagonia Arte & Desafío Foundation under the rubric “South Pole of the Arts, Sciences, and Ecology”. The Bienal has gathered over one hundred artists from five continents addressing the motto “think at the End of the World that another world is possible”. As a pedagogical project, it encourages students at all levels to “think about a better world”.
