Before jumping on my Antarctica cruise, I spent a few days in the southernmost city on earth: Ushuaia, Argentina. As a tourist town that draws not just Antarctica expeditioners but also holidaymaking Argentineans, Ushuaia is a picturesque town that’s a cross between a Norwegian fishing village and ski resort. It’s all about location here: the town is perfectly poised on the southern coast of Tierra del Fuego island, bounded on the north by the Martial mountain range and on the south by the Beagle Channel. Despite a nametag that says “Fin del Mundo”, which literally means “World’s End”, it hardly feels like we are at the bottom of the world considering the slew of posh restaurants, bars, and outfitters.
While I’m at sea cruising Antarctica with G Adventures, here’s a series of photos I shot at Ushuaia where my journey began. Enjoy pictures of the world’s end and see you when I get back!
