Ushuaia is pretty far south, so the weather is never really "hot" around there...
To give you an idea, I left Europe on a mild winter day (around 10°C), went via Buenos
Aires (35°C) and arrived in Ushuaia on an average summmer day (12°C). I don't know how
cold it gets there in the winter, but I'm not about to find out :)
There's not really much to do in Ushuaia itself, but there's the whole area around it
that's pretty nice to travel through, if you like nature : the Tierra del Fuego inland to
the north, the subarctic national park in the south, the canals etc.
If you've got to choose between, say, Torres del Paine and Ushuaia (and you're a mountain
lover like me), I'd definitely pick Torres del Paine. But if you get the opportunity to do
both, go for it and enjoy :)
