Embark

Board your flight in Buenos Aires to Ushuaia. Transfer from airport to hotel for excursion (pre-booked). Later embark the ship in Ushuaia.

Day 1: Ushuaia

Board flight from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia where you will be greeted at the airport and transferred (depending on your choice when booking) to the Arakur Hotel. Join your chosen excursion or enjoy time at leisure before transferring to the ship in Ushuaia. The capital of Argentina's Tierra del Fuego province, Ushuaia lies in a bay opening into the Beagle Channel at the country's southernmost tip. Its colourful houses are framed against towering mountains, snow-capped in winter and summer alike.

Days 2-3: Drake Passage

The one waterway dreaded by tourists, researchers and hardened seafarers alike, it is undoubtedly Drake Passage. Situated at the latitude of the infamous Furious Fifties winds, between Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands, it is the shortest route to Antarctica. Seasoned navigators will tell you that you must earn your visit to the White Continent!

Days 4-8: Antarctica Peninsular

Spend the next two days exploring the magic of this region. Throughout your adventure in this icy realm, you will find yourself in the heart of a spectacular decor in subtle shades of blue and white, surrounded by exceptional wildlife. Penguins, humpback whales, seals and giant petrels are at home here, as are elephant seals, fur seals, Antarctic minke whales, and orcas. Each day, based on ice conditions, the Captain and the Expedition Leader will suggest Zodiac® outings or landings to discover the infinite riches of the Antarctic Peninsula. Glaciers, ice floe, tabletop icebergs, mountain peaks that plunge straight into the sea, volcanic beaches, research stations, enchanting bays, and vestiges of the whaling industry.

Days 9-10: Drake Passage

The next two days will be spent crossing the Drake Passage again en-route to Ushuaia.

Day 11: Ushuaia

Your voyage comes to an end in Ushuaia. Transfer from the ship to the airport to board your return flight to Buenos Aires.
