Description

This tour is ideal to make the most out of a morning or an afternoon in Ushuaia. While walking, you will learn about this intriguing region inhabited for thousands of years by the Yamana. During this walk that takes you from the urbanized to the wilder areas, we will take you to discover the adventures that eventually populated this End of the World.

Here, in this uttermost part of the earth, came into play the 19th century European expansionism, the treaties with Chile, and eventually the arrival of the Argentines to Ushuaia in 1884. Far from other populations, and due to the harsh climate conditions, it took a century for Ushuaia to grow and consolidate as a city: it was necessary an Anglican Mission, a Prision, and a National Law for Industrial Fostering to finally achieve the more than 80,000 inhabitants that today we populate.

With a specialized, English-speaking guide, the proposed walk for about 3 hours starts from our downtown office. After visting and learning from the historical monuments, such as the Old Government House, the End of the World Museum, and the Prison Museum, we will go uphill, to the upper neighborhoods. We will show you the Ushuaia that those who live here love the most, and talk about its history, its cultural diversity, and Nature. The return is back to our office.
