Introduction

Ushuaia is the largest city on the Argentinian part of Tierra del Fuego and the world's southernmost city. It's an operating base for hikes across the island and boat trips to Antarctica. In winter months Ushuaia is a ski resort.

Population

The city has approximately 65,000 inhabitants.

Location

Ushuaia is located on Tierra del Fuego, the far south of Argentina. The city lies on the Beagle Channel, a narrow strait which separates Tierra del Fuego from Navarino Island which is part of Chile. North of town lie mountains with behind them Fagnano Lake.

Economy

Fishing, oil and gas extraction, sheep farming and ecotourism are the main sources of income. There's also a factory producing TV's and washing machines. Tourism to Tierra del Fuego has significantly increased following the economic crisis in Argentina in 2002. The government turned Tierra del Fuego into a duty-free zone, which resulted in many people moving here to start hotels, restaurants and travel agencies. Despite the duty-free status, life on Tierra del Fuego isn't cheap, as most goods need to be brought in from a large distance. Cruise ships moor at Ushuaia's harbor.

Airports

Ushuaia International Airport (officially in Spanish: Aeropuerto de Ushuaia-Malvinas Argentinas) is situated 4 kilometers south of the city center. There are daily flights to the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires and the Chilean capital Santiago with stop-overs in Puerto Montt and Punta Arenas. The airport is easily reachable by rental car via the Avenida Maipú and Avenida Malvinas Argentinas. The way to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Ushuaia has city buses, but they mainly run along the main streets in east-west direction and vice versa. Minibuses run to the tourist attractions nearby the city; they are stationed on a parking lot near the intersection of Avenida Maipú and Avenida Juana Genoveva Fadul, nearby the harbor. There are also bus connections with other places on Tierra del Fuego, including Porvenir (for the ferry to Punta Arenas).

Traffic and Parking

All streets in the city center, near the harbor, are one-way streets. You will, however, not get lost in Ushuaia as the city has a very regular street pattern. There are also sufficient parking facilities, including a large parking lot near the harbor. The roads in and around the city are good, as is the main road across Tierra del Fuego, but other roads are often narrow and winding and sometimes unpaved.

Hotels

Ushuaia has an enormous choice of accommodations, including many budget guesthouses and hostels. You can always find a room in those more basic accommodations, but the hotels in town are often fully booked. We therefore advise booking your hotel room in Ushuaia in advance, especially if you want to visit the city in the summer (on the southern hemisphere from November through March).

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
