Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • 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!

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

  • You will enter Drake Passage at around 2am and the day will be spent 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.

  • Come to the end of the Drake Passage and start to spot the first icebergs as you approach the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.

  • Early morning arrival back in Ushuaia 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 are in need of a few days' rest before returning home.
