Ushuaia on Double Decker Bus

Welcome to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, a one-time penal colony located quite literally at the end of the earth.

Ushuaia is the city closest to Antarctica and is bordered by the last peaks of the Andes mountains and the famed Beagle Channel (named for Charles Darwin's ship, HMS Beagle), the city is surrounded by lakes and bays, forests and glaciers.

Ushuaia is the capital of the Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica, and the Southern Atlantic Islands' Province of Argentina, a mouthful usually condensed into three little words: "Fin del Mundo." Those words, End of the Earth, can easily conjure images of a bleak and barren landscape, but nothing could be further from the truth. Ushuaia is a land of vivid colors and vibrant personality.

Seeing Ushuaia on board a double-decker bus, you will observe many historical buildings, and the first houses that show the typical Fuegian architecture in wood and tin.

The excursion will go into the naval base, where you can see the city's first building (built by prisoners between 1902 and 1911), as well as a replica of the End of the World Lighthouse.

Travel along Governador Paz Street up to Centenary Park and enjoy the view of the mountains that surround the town. The tour continues around the bay towards the place where the old Anglican mission settled down, as you learn all about the first inhabitants of Ushuaia. Other historical highlights include the Beban House.

Before heading back, the tour will stop on the other side of the bay at the best panoramic point facing Ushuaia Bay, with the highest peaks framing the town.

Return along Avenida Maipu and enjoy beautiful views of the port and the first buildings of the city, like the Salesian Church, the first Government House, the first police station, among others. At the end of the tour, you may stay at the Maritime Museum or continue to the starting point of the excursion. Your tour ticket entitles you to a discount at the Maritime Museum, at the End of the World Museum, and at the Aeroclub where you can book fly-overs.
