How to get there

By car:
You can only get to Ushuaia from Río Grande along National Route 3. You can cross the frontier to Chile through Paso San Sebastián after you have come to the island by ferry boat across the Strait of Magellan from Punta Delgada to Bahía Azul through the international pass of Monte Aymond or by ferry boat from Punta Arenas to Porvenir.
Since you must leave the country to arrive by land you have to consider the need to count on all the documentation necessary for a trip to bordering countries, as in the case of minors not emancipated, who must have a legalized authorization of both parents, or the impossibility to cross the frontier with perishable food.

By plane:
The International Airport Islas Malvinas, inaugurated in 1998, is the operation base for all types of planes, the most common means of transpotation to get to the island of Tierra del Fuego.
Different airlines connect Ushuaia with the rest of the world.

By boat:
Several sea lines and scientific ships include Ushuaia as a stopover in their trips to Antarctica or the Fuegian channels, apart from an important stock transportation from the rest of the country as from abroad.
