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 …

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!
