My flight was moved yesterday from 9:00 to 05:30. So up at 3am (with just 2 hours sleep) and off to the airport. I realised that I've spent just over 24 hours at the hostel. The flight down was good and the clocks went back another hour. The scenery coming in was great, snow capped mountains going into lakes. It was a beautiful day in Ushuaia and …
This is the first day of the tour and my room mate arrives. Today I went to the maritime museum and learnt all about the important boats in the area. In 1520 Hernand de Magallanes sailed in and named the land "Tierra de los Fuego" the land of fire. FIRE!!! There is nothing warm about this place. I did get myself is a little jam. Then it was off to …

It took us some 36 hours to get here (Cornwall, London Heathrow, Sao Paulo airport, Buenos Aires, Ushuaia) and today are about to embark on the sea voyage from the bottom of Argentina to the ice.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Albatros Ushuaia
This is a clean, well-run place with everything you could want. WiFi is in the cafe/restaurant but the coffee is good and the staff are pleasant, particularly if you at least try to order in Spanish! It's close to many shops and eating places. We even found a great little hamburger bar! (Try the local Supermarket/Department Store for last minute clothes and supplies for Antarctic travellers. It is cheaper than the places aimed at tourists. )
