Tick a visit to the southernmost city in the world off your bucket list at Ushuaia. The locals have picked up the El fin del Mundo’ (or ‘the end of the world’)theme and run with it, and you can help them celebrate it by enjoying a pint of the world’s southernmost microbrew while you're here. Penguins are another big drawcard, and it's hard not to get caught up in the hysteria with the comical creatures adorning city signposts, restaurants (selling chocolate and meringue penguins) posters, postcards, key rings, clothing and more.
And don't forget to try the mouthwatering King Crab, caught fresh each day and prepared with gusto.
Ushuaia (oos-WHY-uh) gives you access to some amazing natural surroundings, including snow-capped mountains and the Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego - which translates as National Park of the Land of Fire.
Walk the Pampa Alta and the Senda Costeria that winds around the Beagle Channel’s beautiful Bahia Ensenada and Bahia Lapataia. And keep your eyes peeled for the Megellanic woodpecker, with its bright red head.
