Ushuaia City Tour: History and Culture

Half Day


The tour begins in downtown Ushuaia, visiting the homes of the first settlers and hearing their stories. The local Navy Base is the location of some of the first public buildings in the city: the prison, the workshops, the administration, the old power plant, the bakery, a replica of the World’s End Lighthouse and the Marine Museum. On Gobernador Paz street it is possible to visualize and understand the different phases of the population of Ushuaia. Paseo del Centenario is a good spot to see the mountain ranges around the city and the Beagle channel. The tour approaches the Saint Christopher ship while learning how it was hired to rescue the Monte Cervantes, sunk in the Beagle. The tour visits also La Pasarela, a walkway surrounded by sea, and La Misión neighborhood, on the other side of the bay. At the old airport’s premises, there is another stop to enjoy a great view of the city. On the way back, the tour circles the bay and, after some other points of interest, returns to its starting point. The tour will end at The Old Prision Museum. This museum was an old prision that over seventy years ago hosted the most dangerous Artenginian prisioners. Today, the remainings of this prision will take your imagination to a different time and you will also be able to see how the prision looked like in one of the recreated cells.
