Ushuaia is the main town of the island of Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and serves as an embarkation/disembarkation port for our Antarctic cruise passengers. It was initially founded by British missionaries in 1870 as a refuge for the indigenous people of Tierra del Fuego, the Yámana. In Ushuaia, it is often cold and windy, and rain is possible; temperatures can range between 40 and 50 F (5 – 10 C). The only pier in Ushuaia is located on Maipu street, opposite Lasserre street, the Government building, and the Hotel Albatros.
