Ushuaia lives between the Andes and the Beagle Channel, within a wilderness providing plenty of superb views. Ushuaias main feature is its isolation: it is the southernmost city in the World and that makes it even more unique. It took white men three and a half centuries from the time the first European came through the region finally to settle here. Very far from any other city, and because of the harsh living conditions, the development of the place was delayed until the turn of the 20th century.
The first attempt to populate this place during the past century was a prison, which became the centre around which Ushuaia revolved during the following 50 years. During the 1970s, the growth of the city was favoured by a law passed to promote industry, thus turning Ushuaia from a little village with some 5 000 inhabitants into what nowadays is a city of over 80.000.
City Trekk is an invitation to go around this city, to admire its magnificent views, to visit the Salesian Mission and to learn the stories of those who have chosen to live in this unique place. City Trekk is a tour around Ushuaia, a walk in which to discover its overwhelming natural beauty, and also to consider mans relationship with nature.
