Itinerary

Day 1 Buenos Aires
Before your adventure to the bottom of the Earth, spend the night experiencing the lively bars, restaurants and tango clubs of Argentina's capital city.

Day 2 Buenos Aires to Ushuaia
Climb aboard and set sail through the exquisite Beagle Channel. Stay on the lookout for penguins, cormorants, petrels and albatross.

Day 3-4 Drake Passage
As the trip navigates through the famous waters of the Drake Passage, start to experience some of Antarctica’s rare wildlife. While the mixing of polar and temperate waters occurs, the nutrient-rich waters rise to the surface and draw in a host of seabirds, whales and marine life, so look out for a feeding spectacle.

Day 5-9 Antarctic Peninsula
Venture into the heart of the Antarctic waters, as the voyage travels through various weather, ice and ocean conditions. Expect the unexpected, and be ready to disembark in order to meet the local penguins, or maybe go for a ‘polar plunge’ in the icy waters of Neko Harbour.

Day 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.

Day 12 Ushuaia to Buenos Aires
Wind down this Antarctic Expedition back on solid ground as the trip disembarks in Ushuaia and you fly back to Buenos Aires.
