Epic Antarctica 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.
More than just an imaginary line at 66° 33’ S, crossing the Antarctic Circle is an impressive achievement - this magical part of the world is visited by very few people.
One of the last true wilderness areas left on earth, the Antarctic Penisula is largely unchanged since the early explorers first landed on its inhospitable shores.
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.
