The city at World's End
11.03.2017 8 °C
Ushuaia is located on a wide bay with the Martial mountain range to the north and Beagle Channel to the south. This part of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago is also called the End of the World.
We walked along the seafront and had our picture taken with the End of the world sign.
There were snowy peaks all around the town, so we walked up the hill behind the town, and found a walking trail which gave good views across the city.
The town is mostly full of tourist shops ready for the cruise ships and people waiting to go to Antartica. Rob got tired of shopping very quickly and went for a run along the seafront.
We didn't have long as the ship was leaving at 3pm so we could cruise through the Beagle Channel and view the Avenue of Glaciers. The Beagle Channel is a narrow strait named after HMS Beagle, a British ship that first surveyed the area during its world circumnavigation (1826-1830).
