Martial Glacier — For an incredible view down over Ushuaia and the Beagle Channel, you should strap on some sturdy boots and tackle this glacier trek. It’s quite a mission, but the sense of achievement you’ll feel upon beating it will make it worth your while. There’s a ski slope sometimes open in the winter months, so you might even have a chance to practice your slalom.

Mastil de General Belgrano — This intriguing outpost on Isla Redonda to the west of Ushuaia was built in honour of the renowned General Belgrano. It’s also a tribute to the warship that took his name and was famously sunk in the Falklands war. Remote and compellingly desolate, it even has a post office so you can send a postcard from the end of the world.
