It is a question that you can ask yourself when evaluating to take a 3:30-hour flight to go from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia. Is it worth traveling to Ushuaia? Well, the first thing I have to tell you is that if you decide to visit Ushuaia, you will be arriving at the City of the End of the World. And that is something that you will not always be able to repeat. But Ushuaia is not only the southernmost city in the world, it is also a city rich in history and natural beauty. The beginnings are linked to the old jail that was established at the beginning of the 20th century and which ended up being the cornerstone for the later development of the city, located on the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego. Some wonderful natural attractions are the Tierra del Fuego National Park, the magnificent End of the World Train, the Fagnano and Escondido Lakes, the Esmeralda Lagoon, and the mythical Beagle Channel, which you can navigate to discover sea lions, penguins and remote lighthouses.
Ushuaia is also a great place to taste some unique local dishes like the King Crab, called "Centolla" and the typical Patagonian Lamb. Believe me, it´s a highlight in your trip to southern Patagonia. Do you want more? From Ushuaia, you can embark and enjoy some incredible cruise expeditions to Cape Horn and the southern fjords and channels in Patagonia. The Australis Cruise goes from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas, disembark in the Cape Horn and in different islands and islets in these remote areas, to finalize in Punta Arenas. It´s an amazing 4-night cruise. See more information about these amazing cruises by clicking on the image below:
