Cruise the Beagle Channel
This narrow waterway forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile. The beauty of the area is astounding with mountain views on both sides.
Next stop, Antarctica!
Ushuaia in Argentina is on the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. It is the southernmost tip of South America - the 'End of the World. This is as far south as you can get before actually heading for Antarctica.
Something for everyone
Humpback whales, dolphins, penguins and even orcas have been sighted in the channel. Whale and dolphin sightings are seasonal, so do check beforehand if this is what you really want to see.
Photographers will be itching to get to Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, the ‘lighthouse at the end of the world’ (though strictly speaking this accolade belongs to the lighthouse on Isla de los Estados). The lighthouse stands proud in front of a stunning backdrop of snow capped mountains. If the weather plays along and the lighting is good, you can get some amazing photographs here.
Weather will play a part and it’s always chilly so wrap up warm!
Wildlife you might see
Skuas, black-browed albatross, steam ducks, cook gulls, grey gulls, Cauquenes, sea lions, magellanic and gentoo penguins, dolphins and humpback whales (seasonal),
When to go
The best weather will be between December and February, but it could be windy which will make the waters rough.
