What's included in this trip
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.
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.
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.
