Ushuaia Bay

The end of the world, black or white, you like it or don't like it.
Anyhow it is located at 54?‹48?Œ00??S, 068?‹18?Œ00??W on the southern coast of the island of Tierra del Fuego, in a setting surrounded by mountains with everlasting snow on the tops and overlooking the Beagle Channel. The city has about 70,000 inhabitants.

Rich in history, great landscapes and natural parks to be visited by a local guide. Jacky, my guide just did a great job, in origian from Buenos aires, living here for more than 11 years but never intending to leave this place.

Tierra del Fuego

"Les Eclaireurs” lighthouse, maybe the symbol of Usuaia bay and the beagle channel

Beagle Canal

An absolute must to do, take a hydrofoil, get relaxed and enjoy the different islands full with local animals, and a breathtaking view on the mountains surrounding Ushuaia

    I'm sure it seemed like a really good idea at the time. Importing those beavers, I mean.
