Ushuaia Cruise Ports Shuttles
USH airport transfers
Along the far southern end of South America, the small city of Ushuaia is a popular cruise stop for ships passing through the Beagle Channel. A few hundred miles from the northernmost point of Antarctica, the Argentinian port city shares an icy mountain backdrop with the region, all modernized by an international airport, vibrant resort economy and wide variety of tourist-friendly landmarks. Public transportation is consistently located, the closest stop from the cruise terminal being the Ushuaia Bus Station, as well as a ferry line. Other ways of seeing the island can be discovered through the beauty of private transfers like small sedans and large vans, meet-and-greet services going a step further with drop off services like taxis idyllic for drop offs to wherever and local personal drivers who can showcase the prettiest corners of the Beagle Channel.
Locally referred to as ‘Fin del Mundo’, or ‘End of the World’ due to its placement at the end of South America, Ushuaia’s vibrant sea town atmosphere is one filled with small town relics, especially by the cruise terminal’s colorful Tourist Dock, or ‘Muelle Turistico’. The dock’s waterfront promenade connects to the historic Former Villagers Monument, as well as a vast collection of turn-of-the-century relics at the Governor’s Antique House, locally referred to as ‘Antigua Casa de Gobierno’. Unique exhibits offer tourists the opportunity to learn a little bit upon arrival as well, not only through the local and natural science taught at Museo del Fin del Mundo, but indigenous artifacts and statues housed at the Feguina History Gallery (discretion advised). Despite what the region has to offer, grab a bite to eat from somewhere special along Avenue San Martin, home to world-class Argentinean through Bodegón Fueguinos indigenous recipes, and a range of casual brunches and stylish dinners at Tante Sara.
