What to buy in Ushuaia?

Typical products from Ushuaia are sheep woolen knitwear, chocolates and handcrafts made with elements collected at the surrounding forests.

Besides, Ushuaia is a tax free port, and this is why you can get cigarettes and other imported items at a very low price.

There are two free shops on the main street. There are several “homemade” beers; some of them are very good.
