When we were heading towards the end of the world - Ushuaia, we had a mission to watch sea lions and penguins in Patagonia without the tours which tend to be quite pricey around there. Ha, and we got lucky! On our beloved app iOverlander, we spotted two less known places on the Argentinian coast - the first one being near Puerto San Julian, where we were supposed to find sea lions and the second one - national park Monte Leon with the über-cute penguins. Yassss, bingo!!

No matter the circumstances. And that’s perhaps where things started to go wrong. This is a story about our hilarious hiking in Ushuaia and all the DOs and DON'Ts you should(not) repeat.
