We, who make Canal, propose tours in which Ushuaia is revealed as a site of exciting natural beauty, which also invites us to reflect on the way in which man relates to nature.
Ushuaia lives between the Andes and the Beagle Channel, in a generous natural setting with unique views.
The landscapes of Ushuaia offer mountains, sea, forest and small sinuous rivers.
The main characteristic of Ushuaia is its isolation: it is the southernmost city in the world, and that makes it even more special. It took over three and a half centuries since the first European found this region for the “white man” to settle here.
The first attempt of modern population in the 20th century in Ushuaia, the prision (presidio), was the center of the life here during fifty years. In the 1970s, an industrial promotion law favored the growth of the city, which eventually transformed it from being a small village of 5,000 inhabitants to a city of some 70,000.
Tierra del Fuego has an average annual temperature of 5 ° C (similar to that of any refrigerator). It’s climate is unstable, unpredictable, but mild, moderate.
Towards the end of October the sun rises little around 5 AM and goes past 8 PM. The longest days take place at the end of December, when it dawns before 4 AM and the sunset leaves light after 11 PM.
