Day 1 Ushuaia
Enjoy an adventure to the bottom of the Earth, and arrive at the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia. Poised on the edge of Beagle Channel, this Argentinian city is the capital of the Tierra Del Fuego region. Spend the night experiencing local life in this remote and fascinating city, affectionately known as ‘fin del mundo’ – the end of the world.
Day 2 Embarkation
Climb aboard and set sail through the exquisite Beagle Channel. Stay on the lookout for penguins, cormorants, petrels and albatross.
Days 3-4 Drake Passage
As the trip navigates through the famous waters of the Drake Passage, start to experience some of Antarctica’s rare wildlife. While the mixing of polar and temperate waters occurs, the nutrient-rich waters rise to the surface and draw in a host of seabirds, whales and marine life, so look out for a feeding spectacle.
Days 5-8 South Shetland Islands & the Antarctic Peninsula
Venture into the heart of the Antarctic waters, as the voyage travels through various weather, ice and ocean conditions. Expect the unexpected, and be ready to disembark in order to meet the local penguins, or maybe go for a ‘polar plunge’ in the icy waters of Neko Harbour.
Days 9-10 Drake Passage
Return through the Drake Passage towards the comparatively milder climbs of Tierra Del Fuego, staying on the lookout for wildlife passing overhead.
Day 11 Ushuaia
Wind down this Antarctic Expedition back on solid ground as the trip disembarks in Ushuaia. Spend the evening celebrating this incredible adventure and attempting to get rid of those inevitable wobbly sea legs.
