Overview

This wilderness island – Land of Fire - sitting at the end of the world is separated from the southern Patagonia mainland by the Magellan Straits.  It is carved through by icy streams, waterfalls and glaciers, mantled by evergreen forests and carpeted with boggy, flower-speckled grassland. Framed by needle-sharp icy peaks, it’s a tortured landscape of incredible natural beauty. Ushuaia, clinging to its shores on the Beagle Channel, is a busy little port from which cruises depart for Antarctica; it still has a frontier feel and has an interesting history in its own right.

Where to go when - our guide to Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego

The weather in Tierra del Fuego is wide and varied

Located at the end of the world is the wilderness island of Tierra del Fuego, separated from southern Patagonia by the Magellan Straits. This far south the weather conditions are highly unpredictable and dynamic, with wind whipping in from the seas bringing clouds and rainstorms. During summer (December - February) there are mild temperatures and days that remain light until 1am, while the winter months (June - August) usher in a thick carpet of sparkling white snow, ideal for skiing. In the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn there are fewer visitors and wildlife is more visible.
