Voyage to Antarctica(ISD)

11 Day Package from Ushuaia to Ushuaia

Begin at the “End of the World” in Ushuaia on the island of Tierra del Fuego in Argentina for this amazing voyage to Antarctica. Enjoy a day to explore this former outpost and penal colony of Ushuaia—now a thriving center of fishing and timber industries. Perhaps venture to nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park to see its dramatic scenery and wildlife with the Chilean Andes as its spectacular backdrop.

Embark on the Ocean Atlantic ship for a 9-night cruise bound for the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Navigate the Beagle Channel with your expedition staff, sailing for the next two days across the Drake Passage, where the cold Antarctic intersects with the warm Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Your expert team of naturalists sail with you to share enlightening insights on the incredible natural world surrounding your journey. As you approach the South Pole, you’re likely to spot seals, whales, and penguins before making a zodiac landing on shore (weather permitting). Next, spend two days cruising the South Shetland Islands of King George, Deception, and Half Moon where you will find a magnificent natural world of elephant, weddell, and leopard seals and several breeds of penguins and storm petrels playing in the water. Next, cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula with the marine life around you multiplying in the polar waters. Humpback whales, orcas, penguins, seals, and sea birds call the Antarctic Peninsula home. Your cruise ship will make as many landfalls and launch zodiac excursions as possible, weather permitting. Cruise for two days, returning through the Drake Passage, past Cape Horn, and on to the calm waters of the Beagle Channel and Ushuaia. An amazing Antarctica vacation adventure is awaiting you!

Please note: The itinerary and activities over the next few days depend on weather and ice conditions.
