Day-by-Day Expedition in Brief

  • Perfect for first time visitors to Antarctica;
  • Witness and explore the highlights of the Antarctic Peninsula;
  • Be aboard one of Quark’s specially designed ice strengthened vessels;
  • Learn about the environment and wildlife from onboard lecturers and specialists; and
  • Witness the abundant wildlife - penguins, seals, whales and more!

Day 1 — Ushuaia, Argentina

With a population of more than 63,000 people, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world.

Day 2 — Embarkation Day

Embarkation will occur in the late afternoon, after which your vessel will sail down the historic Beagle Channel.

Days 3 and 4 — Crossing the Drake Passage

Prepare yourself for potentially rough water, but hope for a smooth sailing as the Drake is unpredictable and always changing.

Days 5 to 7 — South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula

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.

Days 8 and 9 — Crossing the Drake Passage

The journey back across the Drake Passage provides final opportunities to enjoy the crisp Antarctic air.

Day 10 — Disembarkation in Ushuaia

You will arrive in Ushuaia in the morning, which allows you to continue your adventure on land or catch your flights home.
