What's included in this trip
Antarctic Explorer SummaryAdd to Shortlist
A picturesque town at the end of the world, Ushuaia is the launching pad for many Antarctica trips and is also excellent for hiking and mountain-based activities.
The beautiful Beagle Channel, which links Ushuaia with the Drake Passage, is particularly rich with birdlife - penguins, cormorants, petrels and albatross can all be seen here.
The infamous Drake Passage is a fascinating place where the raw power of nature is always on display - seabirds circle overhead and whales happily cruise these waters.
The coldest, windiest, driest and iciest continent, Antarctica is a land of spectacular scenery, epic adventure and some of the world's most iconic wildlife.
Named for the famed English explorer Sir Frances Drake, the 800km-wide Drake Passage separates the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula from the bottom of South America.
Renowned as the world's southernmost city, Ushuaia has plenty to offer the many adventurers who pass through: nice restaurants, interesting museums and the nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park.
