Arrival into Ushuaia!
Argentina & Torres del Paine Custom Family Adventure

Beagle Channel view from Tierra de Leyendas hotelBeagle Channel view from Tierra de Leyendas hotel (Cynthia Gillett)
We arrive in the Buenos Aires International Airport after our overnight flight from Atlanta and - Hooray! - our Adventure Life local contact is waiting for us just outside customs to help us exchange currency, get a bite to eat, and then take us to the Jorge Newberry domestic airport for our flight to Ushuaia - our first destination. A brief but interesting narrated tour through Buenos Aires on the way. Mid-afternoon we arrive in Ushuaia airport (a tiny airstrip on a little peninsula - don't look down!) to be greeted once again by a friendly local guide who takes us to our hotel, the lovely small inn called Tierra de Leyendas. A little outside of downtown Ushuaia with a beautiful view of Beagle Channel, gracious and welcoming hosts (as well as the first of our many glasses of Argentine wine). After a short refreshing nap, we head downtown to a highly recommended seafood restaurant - Kaupe. It was wonderful, again with a view of the water - we saw a double rainbow from our dining table! Superb scallops and king crab and mussels and sea bass. Back to Tierra de Leyendas to sleep in a very comfortable bed with views of the Beagle Channel visible until after 11pm! The Argentine summer solstice!
