Extreme, Expansive,

Extraordinary

Your expedition begins in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, lying along the Tierra del Fuego. For the moments not spent making wet landings via Zodiac, kayaking through ice floes and trekking beyond where most travelers will ever step, you’ll want to have your camera at the ready. The transit through Drake Passage – the gateway to the Antarctic – offering the chance to observe albatross and Cape petrels soaring on the Antarctic wind.

Arrive at the Antarctic Peninsula, an icy wonderland accented with deep bays and carved coves and home to humpback whales, orcas and leopard seals, as well as some of the most adorable local residents: several species of penguins. Set foot on the seventh continent, explore ice-filled bays, listen for calving glaciers and blowing whales, and marvel at mountain landscapes and the curious wildlife in the company of your team of Antarctic experts.

Itinerary

Day 01 - USHUAIA, ARGENTINA

EMBARK – PM

DEPART – 6 PM

USHUAIA, ARGENTINA

Ushuaia lies on the triangular-shaped island of Tierra del Fuego. While Ferdinand Magellan was exploring the straits between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in 1520, he was amazed by the smoke and fires which seemed to appear at every turn. These fires, kept continuously alight by the Yaghan and Ona Indians, became the inspiration for the name “Tierra del Fuego,” Land of Fire.

Day 02 - Cruising The Drake Passage

Day At Sea

This 600-mile-wide body of water between South America’s Cape Horn and the Antarctic Peninsula is where the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern oceans converge, and where unimpeded westerly winds aid the flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current – a huge volume of water about 600 times the flow of the Amazon River. Seabirds, notably wandering, royal and light mantled sooty albatross, as well as southern giant petrels, follow ships making the crossing and whales might also be seen.

Day 03-10 - Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica

Antarctic Peninsula

Extending from the northern-most reaches of the Antarctic mainland, this 800-mile-long mountain range of ice and islands jutting into the Weddell Sea on approach to the Drake Passage, is the Antarctica of dreams. The most accessible part of the Great White Continent, here is where iconic tabular icebergs provide mesmerizing vistas, and where seals, seabirds, and chinstrap and Gentoo penguins make their home. Zodiac adventures and landings reveal the wonder of this pristine and captivating region.

Day 11 - Cruising The Drake Passage

Day At Sea

This 600-mile-wide body of water between South America’s Cape Horn and the Antarctic Peninsula is where the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern oceans converge, and where unimpeded westerly winds aid the flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current – a huge volume of water about 600 times the flow of the Amazon River. Seabirds, notably wandering, royal and light mantled sooty albatross, as well as southern giant petrels, follow ships making the crossing and whales might also be seen.
