Wine purchasing

by mar1223

OK. This may be a silly question to most. But,we will be going on a cruise ship to Antarctica on the 18th out of Ushuaia. We enjoy drinking wine and would like to take some good Argentinian wines with us on the trip.

Does anyone know if there is a good wine store in Ushuaia where we can purchase good Argentinian wines?

If not, we'll probably bring them down from Buenos Airies - but with all the luggage we currently have it will be tough.

Please let me know by sending a direct email. (Your ignorant yankee friend :-)

Thanks.

Plenty of good wine stores on the main street in Ushuaia. You can also treat yourself with a lot of good Antarctica sovereigns in this southern most city. We were there during xmas 08 on our way to the Antarctic expedition and loved the place.

Note that the weather changes very fast. You may want to carry warm cloting and a water proof jacket even in a clear weather - it may change any time. This city has only 30/40 sunny days in a year.

have fun; take a tot of pictures. Good luck

Travel Tips for Ushuaia

Summer

by Sharrie

January is Summer in Ushuaia (Southern Hemisphere, everything becomes opposite, seasonwise ie).

It was very pleasant that very morning before my trip to Antarctica. I was to board the ship around 5 pm. Since it was such an expensive trip, I decided to just stay in town & not even venturing into the national park (just in case I missed the boat!). I took a lot of effort b4 I made it here, so not going to sabotage myself by merely venturing into somewhere which pales in comparison to the actual adventure. Yeah, sometimes you've to know what's your priority in life is & this is definitely one of those times!

Anyhow, I simply wandered around town & unbeknowst to me at that time, I ended up making another major decision in life in that very few hours in Ushuaia! It's strange how life turns out at times :-)))

Cerro Castor

by gonekiting

Cerro Castor is the southernost ski center in the world. There is excellent snow during winter, a little hard maybe until the end of August since due to its latitude and the fact that the slopes face South the sun is almost not visible. That is why the major ski teams in the world train there during the northern hemisphere's summer. The best time to go is September, ideally after the last season's storm. You'll find yourself skiing in one of the most remote areas in the planet (Ushuaia, the closest town is 30 Km. away and there is nothing in between). The center has a few luxury cabins, you'll have to sleep in Ushuaia and make the shuttle every morning. Once there don't forget to have a cordero patagonico (patagonian lamb), simply sublime! Skiis or snowboard of course.

The "Les Éclaireurs" Headlight

by toonsarah

This is one of the sights of Ushuaia, and is located on one of the many promontories that jut out into the Beagle Channel. It forms the furthermost destination of most of the boat trips that take tourists on an exploration of the Channel. The tower is painted in red and white stripes, is 11 meters tall, and is equipped with a solar energy based lighting device.

This lighthouse is claimed by Argentina to be the most southerly in the world, though Chile has one about which a similar claim is made. I don’t know which is the real “southernmost lighthouse”, nor do I care especially – perhaps they are level with each other :)

It is apparently also, though mistakenly, called the Headlight of the End of the World, the name that Julius Verne used for the San Juan de Salvamento headlight, at Isla de los Estados. Maybe that is a mistake, but the name describes it very well as it certainly has to be one of the most remote spots for a lighthouse.

Ushuaia Tourist Office

by globetrott

The Tourist-office of Ushuaia is to be found in one of the most beautiful buildings in the centre of the village. It was built inside an old blockhouse that was built in 1926 at the crossing of San-Martino-Avenue and Juana-Fadul-Street, a house beautifully painted in red and white. In 1926 this house was built as Sarmiento Popular Library and in 1996, when the library needed a larger house the building was bought by the city of Ushuaia.
The touristoffice is open :
Monday-Friday : 8.00am till 10.00pm
weekends and Holidays
from 09.00am till 08.00pm

The Port

by MikeAtSea

A lot of visitors will arrive by cruise ship and hence they would arrive in the Port of Ushuaia. This is the second largest port of Argentina after Buenos Aires. From this port expedition cruises to Antarctica also commence.
