4- How to dress
The weather is not very stable and temperatures are often changing. It is very rare to find an over-hot day in the city of the end of the world.
The best solution is to dress in several layers of clothing as we recommend in the post on “What clothes to bring to the end of the world”. In this way, you will never suffer sudden changes of temperature throughout the day. Remember to wear windbreaker jacket and trekking shoes.
Due to the lack of knowledge about the weather and the temperatures that we have in Ushuaia, we have put together a guide full of recommendations so that you know what clothes to bring to the end of the world at any time of the year.
We believe that it is advisable to put together a varied wardrobe to visit Ushuaia, since in one day you can have several types of climates. It is not surprising that in the morning there is a radiant sun, then wind, hours later rain and depending on the time of year snow and finally the Beagle Channel gives you a rainbow; It is also known that in the valley or in the mountains temperatures are lower than you can find in the city.
A good footwear and jacket is essential.
Hot feet, hot body … not to neglect the extremities of the body which is where more body heat escapes us.
That’s why we recommend bringing gloves, scarf and hat as you may not use it but it will not be too much in your bag.
• An ally for the legs, is to wear thermal underwear either under the snow pants or jeans.
• Regarding footwear, the most suitable are shoes with rubber soles, waterproof where possible and with good grip for walks.
• As a non-minor accessory, sunglasses will be useful as well as a sunscreen.
• A backpack or small bag will be useful to you when making any excursions, or if you want to go part of the city on foot and decide to take some mates, our recommended place is the low mission from where you can see the city from the front. You can also book a City Tour that will take you to the traditional places ending the tour at the Museum of the End of the World.
For those who visit Ushuaia in winter, we recommend the same detailed clothing and if you plan to visit Cerro Castor know that you can rent in the center of the city all the clothing you need to enjoy skiing or snowboarding in the southernmost winter center of the world .
