But there is so much more to experience in Ushuaia. It is surrounded by mountains, lakes and ancient national parks.
Bordering Argentina and Brazil, Iguazu falls is something that can only be fully appreciated by seeing with your own eyes. With its thundering rapids and immense power, Iguazu will leave you feeling the true force of nature.
Take in the views from a distance or walk out to the end of the platforms, standing over the falls, and look down into what is frequently called the Devil’s Throat.
The sheer force of the cascading water will leave you thinking that the name is well deserved.
If standing atop the falls isn’t enough, you can take a boat ride up the river and soak in the experience (literally) as you get up close and personal to the Devil’s Throat that you were just looking down into.
Last but not least, there’s Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is an autonomous city, where the architectural structure and quarters offer both light and shade, adding a different charm to the city. Known as the Paris of the south, and its name is truly deserved. Buenos Aires is vibrant and cultured.

The picturesque ‘Circuito Chico’ is probably the world’s most scenic city tour, and the view from Campanero Hill is justifiably regarded by National Geographic as one of the finest on the planet. Hiking during spring and summer makes way for skiing in winter.
The Ruta 40 is one of the wildest and least-travelled roads anywhere. Spanning the length of Argentina, the Ruta 40 traverses extraordinarily beautiful countryside, barren, remote at times dramatic, other times quite eerie.
After days of travelling through stark landscapes you gaze upon the amazing towers of Mount Fitz Roy, visible from 100km away.
Further south is Perito Moreno Glacier, and then cross the Straits of Magellan to Tierra del Fuego and on to Ushuaia – quite literally, the end of the road!
Perito Moreno Glacier
The colossal Perito Moreno Glacier is a performance more than an attraction.
The most accessible advancing glacier in the world, it creaks and groans as it pushes further down from the Southern Patagonian icefield.
Stroll along the walkways and take a front row seat, to watch and listen as the regular calvings occur and the ice thunderously crashes into the water below.
