Enjoy Less-Visited Destinations and Learn About Ushuaia’s Unique History
Located on an isolated island at the southern tip of South America, Ushuaia was founded around a penitentiary at the end of the 19th century. This southerly destination was once a banishing point for murderers and political rivals. Today the world’s most southerly city is the jumping-off point for tourists heading to Antarctica. Drake offers a wide variety of Ushuaia tours, presenting different elements of the city’s history and culture.
