Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Buenos Aires.

  • Arrive in Buenos Aires. Have the afternoon to explore Argentina's diverse capital.

  • Fly to the world's most southerly city of Ushuaia, where you can sample the local delicacy — king crab!

  • In the morning, you will have free time to explore the city before you board the ship and set sail along the Beagle Channel. Settle into your cabin (this version is based on a mid-range twin cabin with an en suite).

  • You will enter the Drake Passage at around 2am and spend the day making your way across this notorious stretch of water. Surprisingly, the wildlife spotting on the way can be amazing, with wandering albatross, Wilson's petrel and even blue whales possible.

  • Arrive back in Ushuaia early in the morning and transfer to the airport for a flight to Buenos Aires, where you will spend the night. We have kept this itinerary short, but we would also recommend that, if you have time, you head out to an estancia to relax for a day or two. Trips to Antarctica can be hard work as you are constantly on the move, and lots of people need a few days' rest before returning home.
