What's included in this trip
Antarctic Peninsula, Falkland Islands & South Georgia - Sea Spirit 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.
During the journey, our expedition team - which may include ornithologists, marine biologists, historians and other experts - will provide in-depth explanations of the history, geology and wildlife of the Antarctic region.
The rugged Falkland Islands have a frontier atmosphere - especially at the largest British settlement, Port Stanley - and some fascinating flora and fauna.
Enter bona fide Antarctic waters when we cross the 'Antarctic Convergence' - the biological boundary dividing Antarctica from the rest of the southern seas.
South Georgia has a rich history of exploration and evidence of the old whaling and sealing days is still found throughout the island - plus a vast array of amazing creatures.
While at sea there are plenty of activities to pass the time: relax in the bar or spend time out on deck scanning the horizon for whales and other marine life.
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.
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.
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.
