USHUAIA - TIERRA DEL FUEGO

WHEN TO GO



Depending on their particular interests, tourists can visit Tierra del Fuego any time of the year.

If you decide to travel in summer, you will enjoy all kind of walks, trekking, horse-riding, mountain biking, sport fishing and the most incredible trips along the Beagle Channel, or even to the Antarctic.

As regards walks, an excellent place is Martial Glacier. These are short outings, one afternoon or one day long, with the possibility of walking on the ice and enjoying the view of Andorra Valley, to the north of the city, parallel to the Beagle Channel, behind the surrounding mountain range.

It is at this time of the year that cruisers arrive in Ushuaia port carrying a large number of tourists who are eager to visit all these attractive places.

Martial Glacier, on the other hand, changes its physiognomy in winter since it becomes the main tourist resort in the area for both cross-country and alpine skiing.

Winter is also an excellent season to become familiar with the submarine world in the company of a professional diver, either during the day or at night, or if you prefer canoeing, you can row these calm waters during one or two hours, also with the help of a specialized guide.

Winter is the best season of the year to visit Tierra del Fuego for those people who love fishing.

Apart from all this, tourists as well as local residents may engage in various sport and cultural events which also take place in the winter, the most popular being the traditional "Torches Descent". This event takes place on the glacier to welcome the winter season.
