Destination guide: Ushuaia, Argentina
Argentine Ushuaia is the most southern town in the world and the main tourist hub for the province of Tierra del Fuego. In the Yagan language, Ushuaia means “bay that faces the west” and it is here where, due to its exceptional landscape, including majestic forests, lakes, rivers and mountains, cruise ships full of tourists from all over the world arrive every year.
Ushuaia is also an ideal destination to go skiing and on expeditions through Argentine Patagonia.
