Located on a dramatic wide bay on the southern coast of Tierra del Fuego, Ushuaia, Argentina is known as the world’s southernmost city lending it the catchy nickname, “the end of the world.” Capital of the Tierra del Fuego province, Ushuaia is fringed by the Martial Mountain Range to the north and the Beagle Channel to the south. Nearby attractions include the Tierra del Fuego National Park which can be reached by highway or by the popular End of the World Train. Ushuaia is also ground zero for Antarctic departures and from November to March expedition ships depart for the frozen continent almost daily. I enjoyed exploring Ushuaia before my recent Antarctic cruise and took advantage of the local outfitter shops for buying last-minute gear. And if you’re looking for a deal on your Antarctic sailing, spend a few days in Ushuaia and you just might find a last minute discount saving you as much as half off one of these pricey expeditions.
