Silversea Expedition Cruises To Ushuaia

Ushuaia

At 55 degrees latitude south, Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ah) is closer to the South Pole than to Argentina's northern border with Bolivia. It is the capital and tourism base for Tierra del Fuego, the island at the southernmost tip of Argentina.Although its stark physical beauty is striking, Tierra del Fuego's historical allure is based more on its mythical past than on rugged reality. The island was inhabited for 6,000 years by Yámana, Haush, Selk'nam, and Alakaluf Indians. View more

But in 1902 Argentina, eager to populate Patagonia to bolster its territorial claims, moved to initiate an Ushuaian penal colony, establishing the permanent settlement of its most southern territories and, by implication, everything in between.When the prison closed in 1947, Ushuaia had a population of about 3,000, made up mainly of former inmates and prison staff. Today the Indians of Darwin's "missing link" theory are long gone—wiped out by diseases brought by settlers and by indifference to their plight—and the 60,000 residents of Ushuaia are hitching their star to tourism.The city rightly (if perhaps too loudly) promotes itself as the southernmost city in the world (Puerto Williams, a few miles south on the Chilean side of the Beagle Channel, is a small town). You can make your way to the tourism office to get your clichéd, but oh-so-necessary, "Southernmost City in the World" passport stamp. Ushuaia feels like a frontier boomtown, at heart still a rugged, weather-beaten fishing village, but exhibiting the frayed edges of a city that quadrupled in size in the '70s and '80s and just keeps growing. Unpaved portions of Ruta 3, the last stretch of the Pan-American Highway, which connects Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, are finally being paved. The summer months (December through March) draw more than 120,000 visitors, and dozens of cruise ships. The city is trying to extend those visits with events like March's Marathon at the End of the World and by increasing the gamut of winter activities buoyed by the excellent snow conditions.A terrific trail winds through the town up to the Martial Glacier, where a ski lift can help cut down a steep kilometer of your journey. The chaotic and contradictory urban landscape includes a handful of luxury hotels amid the concrete of public housing projects. Scores of "sled houses" (wooden shacks) sit precariously on upright piers, ready for speedy displacement to a different site. But there are also many small, picturesque homes with tiny, carefully tended gardens. Many of the newer homes are built in a Swiss-chalet style, reinforcing the idea that this is a town into which tourism has breathed new life. At the same time, the weather-worn pastel colors that dominate the town's landscape remind you that Ushuaia was once just a tiny fishing village, snuggled at the end of the Earth.As you stand on the banks of the Canal Beagle (Beagle Channel) near Ushuaia, the spirit of the farthest corner of the world takes hold. What stands out is the light: at sundown the landscape is cast in a subdued, sensual tone; everything feels closer, softer, and more human in dimension despite the vastness of the setting. The snowcapped mountains reflect the setting sun back onto a stream rolling into the channel, as nearby peaks echo their image—on a windless day—in the still waters.Above the city rise the last mountains of the Andean Cordillera, and just south and west of Ushuaia they finally vanish into the often-stormy sea. Snow whitens the peaks well into summer. Nature is the principal attraction here, with trekking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife spotting, and sailing among the most rewarding activities, especially in the Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego (Tierra del Fuego National Park).

Upon arrival at 'The End of the World' Station, board an antique wagon of the Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino, the first train to operate inside an Argentine national park. Your narrated ride follows a portion of the Pipo River and along the original Terre plain. A backdrop of mountains adds to the impressive scenery of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Along the way, a photo stop is made at the Macarena Cascade.


Tierra del Fuego National Park

Your train ride passes through parts of this rugged wilderness, and reveals the unspoiled natural beauty of the world's southernmost national park. This nature reserve provides refuge to the grey fox, guanaco, Patagonian woodpecker, hawk, and steamer duck. At the conclusion of the 12-mile (19-kilometre) trip, re-board your coach at the Tierra del Fuego National Park Station and head for Lapataia Bay, the southernmost tip of the continent and one of the highlights of your visit. Along the way, photo stops are made at the park's most scenic viewpoints.


Catamaran Cruise

At Lapataia Bay, embark an enclosed catamaran for a two-hour cruise along the Beagle Channel, and an opportunity to view the wildlife of Sea Wolves Island at close range. As your catamaran slowly circles the small, rocky outcrop, observe sea lions, seals and seabirds. Beverages, empanadas, sausage and cheeses are served en route. During the return ride, take in panoramic views of the town and the dramatic mountain backdrop as the catamaran approaches Ushuaia. Upon arrival back at the pier, disembark your catamaran and commence the brief walk back to the ship.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 500 metres (1640 feet). Embarking and disembarking the catamaran at Lapataia Bay involves walking on worn planks and negotiating some steps. Due to unpredictable weather, we recommend wearing a sweater or windbreaker and bringing a light raincoat. The tour sequence may vary depending on the number of participants. Depending on the number of ships in port, the catamaran may dock at the Touristic Port, which is located approximately 656-984 feet (about 200-300 metres) from the ship's berth. If possible, the catamaran will dock ship-side. Remember to bring your camera. The order of venues visited may vary.

Old Prison Museum

The prison played an important role in the history of Ushuaia; its' staff lived in town, and the prisoners spent much of their time cutting wood in the forest surrounding the prison and building the town. During your visit, learn about the life and hardships of the inmates before the prison was closed down in 1947. Memorabilia from the last inmates of the prison can still be seen in the old cells.


End of the World Train

The prisoners built what we now know as the End of the World Train and worked in the fields of the cold province of Tierra del Fuego. Your tour will continue to the railway station to board the Tierra del Fuego Southern Railway. This narrow-gauge railway is the original one used by the inmates of the penal settlements, which ran until 1947. The train crosses the Pipo River, across the 'Canadon del Toro,' and on into the Tierra del Fuego National Park. At the end of your fascinating train trip, and before returning to the Ushuaia, continue by coach to Bahia Ensenada for a photo stop that affords excellent views of the Beagle Channel and beyond.

When we approach the glacier, we will walk down the catwalks to approach the Glacier and admire from different panoramic points this wonderful creation of Mother Nature.

This day will be an unforgettable experience, a once in a lifetime delight.
