A dramatic mountain backdrop dominates the skyline behind Arakur, a luxury hotel that sits within the stunning Cerro Alarken Natural Reserve just a short distance from Ushuaia city. Extending across a natural balcony that sits 800m/2600ft above sea level, its privileged position provides easy access to a number of the region's fantastic hiking trails whilst ensuring spectacular views over the city of Ushuaia and glacial scenery of the Beagle Channel beyond.
The rooms are comfortable and contemporary in design and the perfect place to rest weary limbs after time spent hiking in the surrounding nature reserve. All rooms benefit from large windows which look out over the forested valleys, rugged mountains or down to the channel, the city lights twinkling at night in the distance. Not only is Arakur a great destination in itself but the property also works perfectly as a base for a couple of nights before embarking on an unforgettable cruise around Antarctica, many of which depart from the port of Ushuaia.
