Booking Activities in Ushuaia

by TravellerSteven

Hi there...I'm heading to Ushuaia in January 2009 and wanted to find out if anyone has some info on whether activities/day trips should be booked in advance, or can be done easily when we arrive? Since we're headed there in peak season, do things such as beagle channel cruises, walks on the martial glacier, or day trips to the national park ever sell out or are difficult to arrange? Is anyone aware of whether these activities are very costly? Thanks in advance for any info anyone can provide!

The main problem is that you are heading there during the peak season for cruises. They use to capture most of the tours so it would be adecuate for you to arrange previously the tours you want to do. You can go any time to the National Park by bus and do the different trekkins and walks the place offers, just go to the Tourist Office and get the booklet; and you will be able to find a ticket for the catamaran which takes you to the lighthouse on the Beagle Channel and the small rocks with penguins, cormorans and other animals. But for those whole day tours, like the trekkin plus canoing, or the 4x4 running by the Fagnano lake, the canoing along the Beagle plus the visit to Gable Island, and others, it will be better to have a reservation. Whole day tours (including a barbacue or the like, must cost about 90 dollars, half day tours about 30-40 dollars.
Visit Canal Fun tours agency, the best in Ushuaia : www.canalfun.com. They are excellent people, I ´ve enjoyed a lot my tours with them.

Thanks again for all the info! Our travel agent here in Canada was trying to sell us a package with the three activities I mentioned for $700 US each. Obviously, we fell off our chairs, and figured that we should be able to book these when we arrive for significantly less!!!

I did the booking right through Canal Fun, because I learned that my travel agent used to charged me more than what I could understand as logical. But comming from another country is safer to do that.
You will see that there are about 3-4 cruises at the same time, and that causes lack of seats in most tours in Ushuaia. Take a warm jacket, and gloves in case you will go canoing. And trekking shoes, because the walks along the Park trails are done with mudd. Have fun.

Travel Tips for Ushuaia

Hostel

by Sharrie

I came across this nice little quaint hostel overlooking the sea & mountain.
Well, at that time I thought if I do come back, I won't mind staying here. It's really nice & cosy. I even went inside & talked to the person in charge.

Yeah, when you have no idea what you are going to do in a foreign town, this is one good way of meeting the locals ;-)
Naturally, this may also end up to be a useful tip to future travelers. But b4 that, I've to find that business card of this place, haha... now that it's almost 4 months after the trip, it's not that easy to find the tiny card! ;-)

dive in very cold waters...

by venteeocho

Ushuaia offers the possibility to dive in its crystalline waters in the middle of a quiet and colorful landscape. This fascinating sport is a new alternative if you dare dive in this cold place with a variety of submarine sceneries.

Diving should be planned between March and December, when Ushuaia presents optimum conditions, since solar activity is not so intense and permits a visibility of more than 15 meters.
Due to the water temperature between 0 °C and 4 °C it becomes necessary to wear a dry suit that you should learn to wear before immersion for a safer and more comfortable
dive. Navigating to the islands is very pleasant, since bays never freeze and you will be accompanied by the birds and delighted by the green tones of the islands.
The shape of the mountains determine their names and makes them easily recognized

The End of the World Train!

by Sharrie

From Ushuaia, you can embark on a single journey lasting 50 mins to the Tierra Del Fuego National Park. B4 that, you've to get a taxi to the Estacion del Fin del Mundo (the End of the World station) which is about 8 km from the city center of Ushuaia. It's relatively cheap to get there. I can't remember the exact amount but it's less than US$5.

The round trip will last 1 hour 40 mins.
Southern Fueguean Railway (Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino) is the company that runs the same route as the old Convict Train did 80 years ago.

Ushuaia's history is related to the "Prison for Relapsed Felons" from year 1902 - 1947.

At the end of the train ride...

by jnyvegas

At the end of the train ride you get off and onto your waiting tour bus, I guess if you went here on your own and were not on a tour you would have to arrange for a cab to pick you up...or ride the train back.

The train and the prision

by Charlin_Baby

From La Estación del fin del Mundo, 8 km to the west of the city, there is a replica of the little train of the prisoners, which crosses one of the paths used by the prisoners (tens of years back) to supply the community of firewood. Apart from going through centenaries forests, rivers, valleys and peat beds of great beauty, the tourist could know the history of the penitentiary that has been transformed into a museum worthy to be visited.
