When to go Ushuaia?

The experience will be very different depending on the time of the year; the weather, the light and the landscape contrast. In summer or spring the sun not only heats up more, but it will also be there for more hours during the day, allowing you to appreciate more closely the unspoiled nature of the area. So much so, that in December you can enjoy a sunset beyond 10 pm. Meanwhile, the winter season is considered as the high season, so the ski centers and sports activities are activated. In addition, on June 21 Ushuaia is lit to celebrate the traditional National Festival of the longest Night in the world.
