USHUAIA - TIERRA DEL FUEGO

THE FIRE THAT STILL PERSISTS



The southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, is the entrance door to Antarctica, the place where mountains, glaciers, forests and sea meet; it is the capital city of the Argentinean province of Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and Islands of Southern Atlantic.

Ushuaia - Ushuaia Patagonia TravelMystic and remote. Rich in legends and stories of conquerors, adventurers and people chased by justice. It is also said that Tierra del Fuego is the place where the world starts and from where it is still possible to explore virgin lands.

Anyway, Tierra del Fuego continues feeding the imagination of travelers and, suggestively, invites us to discover how the smooth Patagonian plain combines with the extremity of the Andes, the forests with the rivers, the mountain tops with the sea and reality with myth.

 Ushuaia at Night - Ushuaia Patagonia TravelThe first people who lived in these lands arrived on foot to what today is Grande Island, more than 10,000 years ago. They were hunters and nomadic collectors who came from the north, ready to survive with the natural resources offered by a space which was still connected to continental Patagonia. Later, a second group settled, nomads of the sea who arrived sailing from island to island from the western archipelago of Patagonia.

Thousands of years did the ocean waters to erode part of the continent or important telluric movements generated this splitting of the continent, forming a big island and inter-oceanic path. After a long time, Hernando de Magallanes's (in English, Magellan) expedition discovered this island and this path in the year 1520 AD: they were Grande Island and the Strait of Magellan.

 Range of Glaciers - Ushuaia Patagonia TravelDuring this journey, the Spanish sailors noticed fire and smoke over the northern coasts. And because of this the island was named "Tierra del Fuego". Then followed two centuries of European expeditions and more direct contact between the white man and the aborigines.

With a past marked by European sailors, indian hunters and a jail with sad fame, the city today presents the tourist with different ways of knowing its history. Ushuaia, its capital city, is not only a small and picturesque city in the end of the world or a simple bay of unique beauty protected by the winds: Ushuaia is nature and adventure in its utmost expression.

In Ushuaia, the tourist will have ample possibilities of living an unforgettable summer or the harshest winter near the Antarctic. Adventure tourism, trekking, horse-riding, sport-fishing or mountain-biking; trips to unexplored places, boat trips on the modern catamarans or comfortable sail-boats will take you along Beagle Channel to Cape Horn and the Antarctic Continent.

Walk on Gable Island - Ushuaia Patagonia TravelUshuaia has a very good hotel and gastronomic infrastructure, allowing you to taste the traditional "centolla fueguina" (Fueguian spider crab), as well as black hake, codfish and sea bream, exquisite sea food and fish, and also Patagonian lamb cooked on a cross.

Its people, its origins, its mystic and its nature are discovered in dance, paint, ceramics, handcrafts, photography and theatre; these expressions can be admired in cultural centers, theatres and sometimes in the open air.

We invite you to visit the southernmost region in the planet, source of inspiration and challenge, of myths and legends which are still alive even for those who have never stepped on these lands or sailed the seas south of the South. Where the majestic icebergs are eternal witnesses and you, the protagonist.
