Visiting Ushuaia will give you bragging rights to have visited the worlds southernmost city.  The city itself is full of the famous Argentine Parillas, which are restaurants where all the famous Argentine meat is cooked on metal grill barbecues.  You will also find a few excellent chocolate shops here which are worth a try.

There are many tours to can choose from, I chose the Penguin excursion, which passed by the famous lighthouse (pictured above) and sea wolves before arriving at the beach pictured above.  On this beach I was able to get close to the penguins and take lots of penguin action pictures.

Below are a couple of the great plates I enjoyed whilst travelling to the Falkland Islands from Ushuaia.
