Our trip to Antarctica was fabulous and I would recommend it to anyone.

Itinerary

Day 1: Ushuaia, Argentina Due to the size of the continent, Antarctica's diversity is best appreciated on longer voyages, where greater distances can be covered. This extended expedition encompasses the wildlife paradise of South Georgia, the remote Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) as well as the extraordinary beauty of the Peninsula. Overnight at a hotel in Ushuaia. Day 2: embarkation day Afternoon embarkation in Ushuaia and sail along the Beagle Channel to start your Antarctic adventure. Day 3: at sea There are many activities to keep you engaged while you are at sea. You could learn to identify the seabirds that glide alongside the ship, or attend the illustrated presentations by the Expedition Team. They will prepare you for the shore landings and Zodiac cruising to come. Days 4-5: Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) En route, the shipboard education program introduces the flora and fauna that you will encounter. Properly prepared, Zodiacs zip you from ship to shore to hike where Kelp Geese graze and Magellanic Penguins guard their burrows. You'll comb beaches and socialize with local residents. Days 6-7: at sea Sailing south you will enter Antarctic waters by crossing the Antarctic convergence, an invisible ring around the globe where the cold Southern Ocean meets the warmer waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Days 8-11: South Georgia After crossing the Southern Ocean, a series of landings are planned around South Georgia, taking in King Penguin rookeries, abandoned whaling stations and the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton. There are also plenty of opportunities for hiking. Days 12-13: at sea Your journey continues with the voyage south to the Antarctic Peninsula. Days 14-17: South Shetland Islands & Antarctic Peninsula Deception Island, Lemaire Channel, Neko Harbour, and Paradise Harbour these are the names that conjure iconic images of the Antarctic Peninsula, where you will encounter towering, glacier-capped mountains rising from a brilliant blue sea, dotted with ice floes. You will visit penguin colonies, listen for calving glaciers, visit historic sites and research stations. Days 18-19: Drake Passage to Ushuaia The Drake Passage crossing is a fitting end to your visit to Antarctica - there may be a final chance to see a variety of seabirds on this final stretch of your journey. Day 20: Ushuaia You will be transferred to the airport from the ship when you disembark in Ushuaia. Notes
  • All voyage itineraries are intended as a guideline only - embracing the unexpected is part of the legacy of expedition travel. Actual routes and landings will be dependent on weather, sea and ice conditions. A degree of flexibility is essential in the polar regions!
