Ushuaia is the port from where the majority of the world's cruises to Antarctica embark and disembark. It is a charming small city that's well worth a visit before your Antarctic cruise. It's highly recommended to plan some time before your cruise just in case there are flight delays on the long voyage to Ushuaia, as cruise departures don't wait for flights. Stroll along the quaint streets or take a tour boating down the Beagle Channel, or hiking to penguin rookeries. Contact an Adventure Life Antarctica cruise expert to help best plan your time in Ushuaia onward to Antarctica.
