Ushuaia also falls in love in summer. An ideal destination for those seeking relaxation and a walk, during this time it offers a large number of activities for all tastes. This beautiful southern enclave combines options for adventure, entertainment and nature. And it will also give you a geography full of unmissable postcards. Its beautiful landscapes are located in the southernmost tourist point on the planet, which gives it the famous title “The End of the World”.
When we think of a mountain range, we usually associate travel experiences in the winter season: snow, high mountain sports and a lot of shelter. However, this wonderful city and its surroundings offer us an innumerable number of options to enjoy a well-deserved summer vacation. The days in summer are very long due to the many hours of daylight. For this reason, it is a favorable time to make the most of time and organize several tours in the same day.
Summer in the southernmost point: Ushuaia city
The city of Ushuaia has the peculiarity of offering coast and mountains, something unique in the entire Argentine territory. Its port is located on the famous Beagle Channel, a renowned interoceanic passage that joins the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. To the west is the Martial mountain chain, belonging to the Fuegian Andes. Its rugged landscape and picturesque architecture are the perfect setting for walks with your family, partner or friends. In a tour of its main avenue you can find an interesting and varied gastronomic offer, ideal to enjoy after a day of intense exhaustion in the various excursions available to experience. Famous for its color palette, its sky offers sunrises and sunsets that give days and nights beginnings and ends of exceptional beauty.
Tierra del Fuego National Park
The visit to the National Park is beautiful all year round, but in summer it has a special charm. Its more than 68 thousand hectares of protected area make up a space where nature is the protagonist. This reserve harmoniously combines the last section of the Andes mountain range with forests, lakes, valleys and rivers, offering horizons full of colors, fresh air and natural music. The encounter in turn with the marine spaces favors the proliferation of a large number of birds and mammals, which live in its interior and are usually sighted on the edges of the paths.
Navigation Beagle Channel and penguin colony
This excursion is one of the most visited attractions. It begins with the navigation through the mythical Beagle Channel, from where you can see a beautiful panoramic view of the city from the coast. As the boat moves away from the port, numerous archipelagos begin to be sighted, the famous Les Eclaireurs lighthouse – illuminators in French – until reaching the penguin colony: a colony of very friendly and sociable Magellanic penguins. Summer is a good season to appreciate them since it is the time when they nest, which makes them easier to spot.
These are just some of the many attractions that Ushuaia has and that can be enjoyed in summer.
We hope you visit us and discover them yourself!
