Hiking at the end of the world? C’mon, admit it, there’s a super cool edge to it.
And besides, we Slovenians are known to be a “hiking nation”, so when our new friends from the USA invited us to go hiking in Ushuaia together, saying “nope” was not an option. No matter the circumstances.

This is a story about our hilarious hiking in Ushuaia and all the DOs and DON’Ts you should(not) repeat.
A river that winds lazily across wide plains. White storks nesting on chimneys. Picturesque churches and unique architecture.
