1)this is quite a distance and I also think that you have to drive through Chile maybe in order to get there AND some rental companies will not allow that.
2)a oneway rental will cost you an arm and a leg !
take a look at my pages that I made about places in Argentina, I had a rental car (AVIS) for 2weeks in Ushuaia.
Roads are extremely dusty and the dust also gets inside of your car
all those places we visited in daytrips by car from Ushuaia
Roads are bumpy, dusty, very windy
something about AVIS:
the contract was in spanish and english in the front page and then you have to sign that you understood everything, although the backside of the contryct is in spanish only. before signing I added by hand "I only understand the english part, but not the spanish text" It was accepted that way.
I cleaned the car at the end from dust, had no problem at all with small scratches that will always accur on such bad roads.
I rented 1x for 10 days and 1x for 2 days, where a minimumcharge of 3 days normally applies, but the AVIS-man gave me the cheaper rate anyway with me asking for !
---
You should be aware that AVIS and other rentalcomp. are not open at airport all day,they ONLY get there, when you arrive and return the car !!!

It will probably cost you more for one-way car rental than to fly. I'd recommend flying from Ush to El Calafate, then rent the car.

Or take the ferry up to Puerto Natales and rent a car there.

Travel Tips for Ushuaia

The last city in the world

by Juanmatias

Bene amici, benvenuti ad Ushuaia, ultima città del emisfero australe.
Situata all'estremo sud dell Argentina offre ai visitatori che vi si recano da tutto il mondo la sensasione dell'infinito. Per lungo tempo questa terra è stata inospitale per l'uomo bianco ed era abitata soltanto da popolazioni indigene (Yamanes) fino all'inizio del 1900 quando la sete di colonizazione spinse il governo argentino a popolarla. Il problema era che nessuno aveva alcuna intenzione di vivere così lontano ed isolato dal resto del mondo visto che all'epoca una nave impiegava più di un mese per raggiungere tali terre da Buenos Aires. Si decise di popolarla utilizzando la popolazione carceraria. Si, è proprio così, i fondatori furono in maggioranza assassini o prigionieri politici i quali dovevano scontare condanne a vita o di lunghissima durata. Ancora oggi vengono conservati alla memora i resti del primo insediamento (Presidio) così come era allora anche se qualche parte è stata ristrutturata in seguito alla chiusura della prigione e venne occupato dall'Armada Argentina. Già prima di arrivare, la vista dall'alto offre regala le prime sensasioni. Neve, acqua, montagne scarsa vegetazione e grigiore della luce fanno scatenare i primi brividi...... quelli di stare lontano lontano da tutto.

Mealtime

by kyoub

Most Argentines eat a light breakfast of coffee or tea. A pastery like a croissant or toast and jam.
We were always served Nescafe, never brewed coffee. Glad I took my own.
Lunch is is often the days main meal and it is cheaper than dinner.
Most dine late for dinner, 9pm is early for them.
If you can go early you avoid the crowd and a lot of the smokers.

Alpine Skiing

by galy

Two alpine ski areas, each with one principal and one beginner lift, are located very close to Ushuaia. The CAU offers skiing at the northwest edge of the city on a run named Wolfgang Wallner in honor of one of the founding members of the Club. The other ski area, Glacier El Martial, is located above Wallner in the bottom of a narrow valley, which leads to the Martial glacier. Wallner is clearly the locals' favorite place to ski.

Tierra del Fuego National Park

by Sharrie

Within the national park, which is about 40 mins west of Ushuaia, one can enjoy the wildlife unique to this part of the world.
Magellanic woodpeckers, foxers, dense forests of verdant beech, glaciers & mountains are said to be found here.

Be very careful though...
Claudio actually told me about a couple from Germany who was here a few years ago went hiking on their own but never did returned to their hotel! & they had never been found either. They were lost in this huge national park!

I was told to get an expert guide who's familiar with this terrain should I decide to explore the park.

Great Meat

by galy about La Estancia

Almost accross the street from the previouse restaurant. You can't go wrong in Argentina if you order a steak. For us, steak lover, it was a feast. The vegeterian among us was very setisfied with the pasta, and there was a salad buffet as well,
The setting was a bit nicer and the service a bit more attentive then in the other one.
We went for the ir recomendation of wine. Not expensive, yet very good.
