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.
As your Antarctic adventure draws to a close, the feelings may be bittersweet – but the journey back across the Drake Passage is the perfect chance to relax and reflect, enjoying your last taste of Antarctic air. Share stories and photos with your new friends, talk to the expedition team to learn more about any of the remarkable things you have seen, or spend some last moments on the deck to watch for whales and seabirds.
