World Travel Magazine - - Where To Stay Exclusive Islands -

If vis­it­ing the end of the world is high on your bucket list, you’ve dis­cov­ered the most dra­matic way to cross it off, at the south­ern­most city in the world, Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, or Fire­land––an ar­chi­pel­ago made up of hun­dreds of is­lands around Cape Horn, the last stop on your way to Antarc­tica. In­side a nat­u­ral re­serve and close to Mount Alarkén’s sum­mit, this moun­tain hide­away’s sweep­ing nat­u­ral vis­tas al­lure guests upon ar­rival. The ma­jes­tic lobby in­cludes a huge fire­place, clean lines and nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als that set off the real show­stop­per––views of the nat­u­ral world all around you. And they are ev­ery­where, even from the state-ofthe-art ex­er­cise room. Out­door hot tubs and re­cre­ation pools perched high on a wooden deck leaves you with silent, stun­ning views of the ocean and moun­tains so peace­ful you may never want to leave. The suites’ min­i­mal­ist, con­tem­po­rary artis­tic fur­nish­ings pro­vide ex­treme com­fort af­ter your in­cred­i­ble end-of-the-world ad­ven­tures at nearby Cerro Cas­tor Ski Re­sort, Ushuaia Golf Club and Tierra del Fuego Na­tional Park. Take your pick from photo sa­faris along Ar­royo Grande’s one-kilo­me­tre coast­line and forested hik­ing trails. Or en­joy wildlife watch­ing and the na­tive forests of lenga, ñire and coihue trees. City and bay views from the moun­tains to the Vin­ciguerra Glacier make for dra­matic din­ing at the La Cravia Restau­rant which serves up ex­cel­lent Ar­gen­tinian cui­sine in­clud­ing spi­der crab, lamb and black hake as well as in­ter­na­tional fare. arakur.com
