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 Day

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.

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.
