In detail

Day 1: Ushuaia and Ship Embarkation

Day 2 to 3: Drake Passage

Over the coming two days you will sail through Drake Passage where the waters of the South Atlantic and the Southern Ocean converge. You will see many species of bird including Petrels (Blue, Wilson’s Storm, and Antarctic); Albatross (Wandering, Grey-Headed, Black-browed, and Light-mantled Sooty); Southern Fulmars; and Cape Pigeons. Keep an eye out for icebergs (not that they are hard to miss!)

Day 2 to 3: Drake Passage

Day 4 to 8: Antarctica

You will spend the next four days exploring Antarctica. Sailing through the Melchior, Brabant, and Anvers Islands to name a few. You will have the opportunity to see many colonies including Gentoo Penguins, Antarctic Terns, Dominican Gulls and Crabeater Seals.

Glide past majestic icebergs, deep-cut fjords, glaciers, and alpine peaks. Spend some time up on deck as here you have the best views when spotting Humpback, Minke, and Fin Whales.

To experience this awesome place in full head out on a kayak or Zodiac cruise and head on land for some hiking for full appreciation of the landscape. If you can bear the cold, then there is an option to camp on land for a truly unique experience. (Any additional activities will require pre-registration as they always sell out!).

A big part of this trip is a visit to the research station. You will be educated about the projects the scientists are working on and the discoveries they have made. The Vernadsky Research Base is where the hole in the ozone layer was first discovered and is also home to the world’s southernmost bar!

Day 4 to 8: Antarctica

Day 9 to 10: Drake Passage

Today you will start to make your way back to Drake Passage after your incredible experience. You will have the chance to spot the many species of bird again.

Day 9 to 10: Drake Passage

Day 11: Departure

You will arrive in Ushuaia Harbour where you will bid your final farewells to your new friends. You will be transferred to Ushuaia airport where you can catch your flight to your next destination.
