Ushuaia is the capital city of the Tierra del Fuego province in Patagonia, commonly referred as the southernmost city in the world, also being an important naval base. It is located in a wide open bay, on the south coast of Isla Grande de Terra del Fuego and bordered on the north by the Martial mountain range.
Ushuaia has subpolar oceanic climate with warm summers and cool winders. The city is surrounded by Magellanic subpolar forest rich in flora and fauna with several recreation activities. Tierra Mayor Valley is a wonderful natural reserve, located at a few miles away from the city of Ushuaia. If you love dogs and the outdoors, this will be an amazing activity for you.
The snow conditions are perfect in Valle Tierra Mayor for dog sledding and the amazing scenery around you would make you feel like you are in a fair tale. The sledges are being pulled by Alaskan and Siberian Huskies that love snow and get very excited, once they start running. The dogs would lead you through heavenly meadows and forests, along ancient lenga beech woods and onto snow covered trails. Dog sledding in Ushuaia is a unique adventure in a place where in every step you make, there is a whole new world of wild untracked nature, waiting to be explored.
Be very well prepared in regards with gear, food and clothing because the weather is changeable and unpredictable with high winds, rain showers, long hot days during summer, snow and everything else you may think of. Wind proof layers are the key.
