Icebergs are the first attractions that welcome you to Antarctica. Massive floating bergs become more common as you get closer to land and you catch your first glimpse of the Peninsula, with its grand snow-covered mountains.
Legendary for its high winds and rolling seas, you may get lucky and have surprisingly calm seas.
You will embark in the afternoon, with a journey through the picturesque Beagle Channel.
This quaint city at the southernmost tip of South America is your gateway to Antarctica.
We’ll arrive in Ushuaia in the morning for you to continue your adventure on land or catch your flights home.
The journey back across the Drake Passage provides you with some final opportunities to enjoy the crisp Antarctic air.
When the Antarctic Convergence is left in our wake, you will truly begin your Antarctic adventure. It is perhaps the first sight of land itself that is embraced as the true beginning of any Antarctic expedition.
With a population of more than 63,000 people, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world.
Embarkation will occur in the late afternoon, after which your vessel will sail down the historic Beagle Channel.
Prepare yourself for potentially rough water, but hope for a smooth sailing as the Drake is unpredictable and always changing.
