Beside all the videos I also took my photo camera to Ushuaia to photograph the landscape, the nature and the adventures I did. Experience a bit of Ushuaia & the land of fire by enjoying the following pictures from the end of the world in this Photo Essay.

Tierra del Fuego, the land of fire, the end of the world – the area in the very south of South America has a lot of nicknames and attracts more visitors each year. For a reason: it's a great place to hike, enjoy the nature and do some cool outdoor activities. In the Video about Ushuaia I recently published you get an overview of all the possibilities how to spend your time in Ushuaia if you've not done it you should check it out right after scrolling through the pictures!

Ushuaia has just been the starting point on my trip to THE areas for outdoor adventurers in South America. Have a look at the video from the penguin island near Punta Arenas and follow me on my trek through the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia by watching the video series from the trek!

  • Gorgeous! I love Patagonia but we didn’t make it this far south

  • Ushuaia really does feel like the end of the earth, doesn’t it? Especially when you get on an expedition cruise to head across to the Antarctic Peninsula – no more “earth” then, just white, white and more white (and some blue).
