Destinations like Iceland and Patagonia have a very specific sort of appeal.

It's so remote and so untouched that travellers flock there to experience something completely unique.

Currently on our radar, the world's southern-most city, Ushuaia is located on the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in Argentina. Nestled in between the almost magical snow-capped Andean mountains and the shores of the Beagle Channel, it's a very worthwhile three-hour flight from Buenos Aires.   

It's a port town in Argentina and the gateway to Antartica.

But why go here? First of all, it's a quiet place with nature in abundance. And you can experience the arrival of migrating penguins, or take dog-sled rides through the Valley of Wolves, according to Vogue.

Remote but not isolated, CNN reports that the city has a lot to offer tourists in terms of activities.

Indulge in a hike or a kayak ride, splurge on a helicopter ride of the area or do a laid-back nature tour in a safari-style truck. And if you don't like roughing it, you can always choose from the many luxe accommodation and fine-dining options the city has to offer. 

Or you can just sit here and take in the views.
