In the summer, it is a good idea to enjoy the City of Ushuaia on one of the most elementary but perfect vehicles ever: a bike.
The tourist operators at Ushuaia Extremo were waiting for us so as to show us the most spectacular nooks in a city where days become practically endless in the summertime. These so-called “urban tours” consist in touring around 20 kilometers for 5/6 hours while observing the most emblematic and outstanding sights at the “world’s end”. Talking about the “world’s end” is usual among the denizens of Ushuaia, and it takes only a few hours for tourists to do likewise.
We left from the tourist agency run by Ushuaia Extremo on our bikes wearing a helmet. The first thing the guide said was: “the city tour has begun”. Very slowly but with plenty of energy and enthusiasm, we started to discover the eye-catching sites and postcards where we had always longed to be. A group photograph at the famous signpost reading “Ushuaia Fin del Mundo” (Ushuaia the World’s End) seemed like a perfect finale for that excursion. However, the adventure had only just started.

We reached the Saint Christopher and bordered the extensive bay to enjoy it from an angle unknown to tourists. “The best is yet to come” promised our guide. National Route 3 and the famous world’s end train appeared before us in a matter of minutes. Most of us considered this was the best destination in the itinerary Ushuaia Extremo had devised for those of us who had chosen “the urban circuit”.
We started our way back through the highest part of the city, which displayed a view of the old ski trail, Laguna del Diablo (the Devil’s Lake) and Camino Centenario (Centennial Road). Then we got back to the agency, where other friends who had hired the same tour were waiting for us.
