Choosing the tours upon arrival  (5 Answers)

In October, is it a must to have a tour pre-booked and paid for?

I was thinking about getting there and choosing whatever suits me most. I´m sure it´s gonna be the Beagle Channel and of course the Parks and Museums. If we do the from a long distance it´s normally costly and does not really guarantee the best choice. What´s the routine for new comers?

Footwear in Ushuaia  (3 Answers)

HI, I intend to go on a cruise in the Beagle channel, I think it's about 3 or 4 hours. It's probably the catamaran one. Do we stay in the boat all the time? Or hop out into the water while getting ashore to visit seals etc. I'm wondering if I need to buy high boots or if I can get away with hiking style lighter shoes.
I'm going to be in Ushuaia in early November.
Thanks so much

Hi,

I am interested in taking a boat tour to Penguine Island in the Beagle Channel from Ushuaia. Does anyone know whether the penguins will (already)be there in early-mid November? Or do they only come to nest there later in the season?

Any recommendations which company to choose? I would like to go on a small boat with just a dozend or so people. I heard that such tours are offered, but on the Internet I only found the tour on large catamerans...

Thanks very much for your help!

any affordable hotel or B&B that does not require climbing steep hills or steps?

Hello,

As I'm searching around for lodging for one night Feb 18, I found out most are sold out. Among those still available yet reasonably priced (less than US$130), seems like every hotel requires climbing steep hills for 10 minutes from downtown or 100s steps.

Can anyone recommend anywhere with a reasonable price without having to climb hills or steps?

Thanks.

Hotels / Guesthouses in December 2010  (2 Answers)

We will be in Ushuaia this December (December 30 to be exact) and have been trying to book one night's hotel stay for three. I have have had no luck - either I'm told the hotel is booked or I get no response (I've tried both online booking and emailing the hotel/guesthouse directly). We don't want to pay an arm and a leg if we don't have to, so I haven't got all the way up to the most expensive places, so that's probably my next option. Am I going about this the wrong way? I know we're going during the high season, but it's still 8 months off (I started looking for rooms over a month ago). I just can't believe everything is really all booked up. Anyone have any leads?
