Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Ushuaia

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.

Day 2 Embarkation

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.

Days 3-4 Drake Passage

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.

Days 5-9 South Shetland Islands & the Antarctic Peninsula

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.

Days 10-11 Drake Passage

The adventure winds up with a trip back over the Drake Passage. Head out to the deck to enjoy your last taste of crisp Antarctic air and watch the seabirds soaring overhead. Now is a great chance to spend some time with your new friends onboard – relax over a few drinks, swap photos and share memories of your Antarctic experience.

Day 12 Ushuaia

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.
