    nice place, bad location

    by

    This is a very nice and pretty new hotel. The problem is it is at the top of a hill about 400 meters from the centre and the walk is not confortable at all. The breakfast starts at 8 which is strange for a place where people leave on the morning for excursions and anyway it's not something to die for.
    I paid 55€ for a single room with breakfast and it's too much for what the hotel offers.
    The staff do not look like to will to please you, let's say they take their time.

    Unique Quality: Rooms have no numbers but names such as north, south, west and so on.

I don't know the answer to your specific question, but thought I'd pass on the name of the company I used when I was there - had the best day thru the park! They do have a "winter" day excursion:

I love the website too - very entertaining. Look at the "winter" outing.

I think it will be extremely cold - it was comfortable cold when I was there at the start of March - breathtaking place.

Decidedly chilly if not downright cold is the answer - and even colder when you're anywhere in the wind... and that's going to mean pretty well anywhere outdoors a lot of the time. Rug up!

Thank you very much for your help. I will prepare my cold clothes .

Re: The weather in october, please

In March I had an underlayer, a turtle neck, a North Face Polartec 300, then a wind/rain North Face jacket, and a scarf. I mostly used the wind/rain jacket on the Zodiac ride, and for about 5 minutes on the hike. I do live in Florida so I'm used to warmer weather. I had a hat and scarf but did not really use them, much less the gloves, but the sun was out 95% of the time. Things turn cold when the sun's not out and the wind is blowing.

I had been in Ushuaia from Mid November 2008 for 2 weeks and even on a sunny day I needed a pullover or jacket. The sun might be strong enough, BUT there is a steady icy wind in and around Ushuaia that makes you feel like almost in wintertime.
October is even more early in the southern spring, so you should be prepared of cold weather.
We drove two times to the eastcoast of Tierra del Fuego (Rio Grande and S.Pablo) and there it was a lot warmer and also the icy wind was almost not existant anymore

Tontódromo

by andal13

Tontódromo means "fooldrome"; this is the name the locals give to the main street, because people usually go round the same street over and over again! You can do the same (especially in the afternoon) or you can lean on a wall and be the fools that look at the other fools passing by!

Tontódromo es el nombre que los locales le dan a la calle principal, porque la gente habitualmente da vueltas por la misma calle una y otra vez. Ustedes pueden hacer lo mismo (especialmente en las tardes) o pueden apoyarse en una pared y ser los tontos que miran a los otros tontos pasar!

Winter time!

by andal13

Ushuaia has a long and snowy winter, so winter sports lovers find a paradise here. There are ski runs at Martial Mountains (quite close to the city), and Encerrada Bay freezes, so you can ice-skate there.

Ushuaia tiene un invierno largo y nevado, así que los amantes de los deportes de invierno encuentran un paraíso aquí. Hay pistas de esquí en la Cadena Montañosa Martial (muy cerca de la ciudad), y la Bahí Encerrada se congela, por lo que se puede patinar sobre el hielo allí. You need some skill and a lot of courage!

Necesitan un poco de destreza y un montón de valentía!

Cape Horn

by galy

55.56' south and 67.19' west, Cape Horn was named after Hoorn, a small calm town of the Netherlands, not far from Amsterdam, where Willem Corneliszoon Schouten was born. He was the captain of the ship "Unitie" on which he sailed in search of an alternative passage to the Magellan's Strait and to the Cape of Good Hope, to reach the Far East.
On January 29th of the year 1616, after a long crossing together with a school of whales and many albatrosses, he discovered a high pointed promontory that he called Hoorn, later called Horn by the English. The fog that surrounded the ship deceived the whole crew: everyone thought it was the extreme southern tip of the continent and not an island as it really is.
Many vessels have rounded the cape, but many others have failed to conqueredthe sea that were unpredictably violent

Tea House

by kyoub about Casa de Te

Casa de Te is located at the entrance to the chairlift.
When we got back we stopped in for hot chocolate but decided to also have a light lunch.
It is a very cute little cafe that also rents out cabins. There is a good view from there over the water.
