Day 1 Ushuaia
Travel to the bottom of the Earth, and begin the adventure in the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia. Capital of the Tierra Del Fuego Province, this city offers spectacular views out across the Beagle Channel for anyone willing to hike to the top of the steep streets. Enjoy an evening at some of the local haunts before departing tomorrow.
Day 2 Embarkation
Set foot aboard your floating home for the next week, and commence the cruise through the waters of the beautiful Beagle Channel. This narrow passage of water cuts through the islands of Tierra del Fuego and is a haven for local wildlife like penguins, cormorants and albatross.
Day 3 At Sea
Follow the beckoning horizon and settle in to the relaxing nature of life at sea. With an expedition team of experts, enjoy their onboard presentations as the perfect introduction to the landscapes and habitats that await.
Days 4-5 Falkland Islands (Las Malvinas)
Explore the spectacular landscapes of the Falkland Islands and stay on the lookout for some of the local birdlife. With such a rich diversity of flora and fauna, ‘Les Islas Malvinas’ are a southern paradise.
Days 6-7 At Sea
Sail across the Antarctic Convergence and enter the polar waters for the first time. Listen to expert presentations to prepare for the upcoming shore landings.
Days 8-11 South Georgia
Arrive at the remote island of South Georgia and gaze up at the jagged mountains that rise straight from the ocean towards the heavens. Follow in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton, hiking the inhospitable, rocky crags and mountains around the island, or visit the old whaling station where he met with rescue.
Days 12-13 At Sea
Continue south towards the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, and make the most of the ongoing presentations and lectures provided by the expedition team.
Days 14-17 Antarctic Peninsula
Cross into the Antarctic Peninsula, where a myriad of potential adventures are available. Depending on weather conditions, why not take the ‘polar plunge’ into the frigid waters of Paradise Bay, or visit a pebbled beach and wait for the curious penguins to approach.
Days 18-19 Drake Passage
Prepare for the notorious waters of the Drake Passage, where the massive flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current travels, unimpeded by land, around the entire latitude.
Day 20 Ushuaia
Return to Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city, and try to ditch your sea-legs in return for solid ground.
