Welcome to Ushuaia, Argentina, the so-called End of the World! I started my Patagonia trip in this most southern city in the world all the way from Buenos Aires.
The first day I was there, I went on the Beagle Channel boat tour. This was a great way to see wild penguins and other types of birds. We also saw the famous lighthouses and sea lions. The guides also made a stop onto a little island so we could take a short hike. On this hike you get to eat wild berries and see plants that are nowhere else in the world. There’s one plant that has an internal temperature of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit!
This little Argentine island gives you a great panoramic view of Ushuaia, the Andes, and the Chilean side. On our way back to the adorable city, they gave us some of their local, delicious beer and we got to view all types of other boats in the bay.
On my second day, I visited the most beautiful place I have ever been in the world, the Tierra del Fuego National Park. Here you can listen to the incredible Patagonian silence, see wild rabbits and enjoy the unbelievable scenery this place has to offer. What was also great about this place was that there are different lengths of hikes for all types of hikers. At the end of the 3-hour hike we took, there was a lodge where we enjoyed a snack and the local Beagle beer.
I could have spent so much longer than 3 days in Ushuaia. This is one of my favorite places in Argentina… it’s a place for enjoyment and appreciation of the incredible nature it has.
