Flying out of Buenos Aires which has a population of nearly 3 million.

After landing at Ushuaia, we boarded buses for a trip through Tierra Del Fuego National Park where we boarded an excursion catamaran for a scenic tour along the Beagle Channel back to the harbor at Ushuaia and embarkation on the ship National Geographic Explorer.
