“The end of the world.” Sounds dreadful, doesn’t it? I can assure you, however, that life at the fin del mundo—Ushuaia, Argentina—is quite the opposite.
During the high season of summer, days in Ushuaia can stretch as long as 20 hours, and locals and visitors enjoy every minute of sunlight with a plethora of outdoor activities.
Hiking the Terra del Fuego National Park is an all-day activity as you wander through the forests and marvel at the unique flora and fauna.
Reaching Ushuaia isn’t easy, as it requires a nearly four-hour flight from Buenos Aires. However, it is worth spending a few days to truly decompress and take in the unusual vegetation.
Condor Mountain is your landmark as you canoe through rivers and across lagoons to reach the famous Lapataia Bay.
Your trip would not be complete without a boat ride through the Beagle Channel to the famous lighthouse landmark, where sea lions and cormorants relax on the rocks.
Life is beautiful at the end of the world, is it not?
