Ushuaia aerial view from the Martial Glacier, Tierra del Fuego in Argentina

Tierra del Fuego & Ushuaia

The enormous province of Tierra del Fuego is shared between Chile and Argentina and lies just beyond the Strait of Magellan, the natural ocean passage that links the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

A diverse province that features barren and windswept plains, virgin lenga forests and glaciers that descend to the ocean, Tierra del Fuego is a captivating destination that embraces its position as the southernmost landmass of South America. The windswept town of Ushuaia, which has retained its pioneering feel, is an industrial port and the gateway to Antarctica, and is commonly thought of as the southernmost city in the world.

Our specialists' 'must do'

Perhaps board a catamaran to navigate on the Beagle Channel, fish in some of the world’s finest trout rivers between November and March, or go hiking through the jarring Lapatai National Park. Alternatively, for the ultimate ocean-bound adventure, plan to join a sailing trip around the Patagonian fjords or a longer voyage to Antarctica.

Paul Bird

Paul has visited Argentina several times, taking in everything from the mighty Iguazu Falls to the dazzling Perito Merino Glacier. According to him, any country that boasts one of Earth’s most dramatic waterfalls, magnificent salt flats, exquisite wines and a vibrant capital is more than worth a visit.

James Armitage

This epic country offers extraordinary landscapes, from the flat Pampas to rugged Patagonia and the lofty Andes. One of James’s recommendations is to head to the north-west of the nation to experience the very different Andean culture based around Salta.

Sue’s extensive first-hand knowledge of Antarctica was so apparent from our first phone call. She was able to help us select the ideal route and vessel for our needs, and with her guidance we were able to see the emperor penguins!

Travel Expert: Sue

Sue forewarned us that there would be no words to describe South Georgia and that our photos wouldn’t do it justice, and how right she was. All we can say is “see for yourself”. Thank you, Sue, for your indispensable advice.
