POCKET GUIDE TO ANTARCTICA
The most southerly city in the world and the gateway to Antarctica, Ushuaia is a resort town backed by snow-capped mountains in Argentina. While most famous for being an Antarctic cruise starting point, this city at the end of the world has many charms of its own. Visit the city’s museums or take a boat out to see the penguin colonies, seals and sea lions. Another famous starting and finishing point on luxury cruises to Antarctica is spectacular New Zealand.
