As we made our way south through Tierra del Fuego, the large island reluctantly shared by Argentina and Chile, it was clear that the 'land of fire' really is the end of the world due to its isolated location and inaccessibility. Neither of us had been this far south before. Prior to the 1800s, passing ships named this land as they spotted the glow …
... location of check-in for Akademik Ioffe. Fortunately the hotel was only a few blocks away – and it was downhill!
I found the check-in location in the hotel’s Gustino restaurant upstairs on the second floor. I handed over my passport and was told to take a seat until it’s time to take a bus to the ship. I laughed at that since I could see the ship out the window of the hotel just across the street ...
... de Magallanes.
The allocation of territories down here is just stupid. Argentina own most of the Southern tip of the continent, whereas Chile somehow managed to secure a square piece that divides the mainland Argentina from the Southern tip. What this meant is we had to check out of Argentina, into Chile, out of Chile and back into Argentina just to get to where we needed to ...
... We had been spoiled.
After getting settled, we ventured out again for some souvenir shopping and to satisfy a hankering for some American food. We wandered into a bar called Chester, which like many local establishments celebrated it's far southern locale in its slogan: "Tu lugar en el fin del mundo" ("Your place in the end of the world"). We had a hamburger and an enormous calzone before retiring to the Hotel Albatros.
... again talking about the Penguins we would see on this trip. Unfortunately it was highly unlikely that we would see Emperor Penguins as they would be a lot further south than we would be going, but we hopefully would get to see Gentoo, Adele and Chinstrap Penguins. Next it was time for our Bio security checks!

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Maison de Ushuaia B&B
We had a great stay with Solange and her family. The accommodation is more of a home-stay than hostel but guests have their own kitchen and bathroom. Our double room had character with our bed on a plinth! Clean and very cosy. Breakfast was very good and plentiful with excellent coffee and bread. Solange made us a packed-lunch when we had a very early start to leave Ushuaia. Perfect hospitality. The family dog 'Moon' is adorable!
