Highlights

  • Complete the crossing of the Drake Passage—considered by most spirited sailors as a lifetime achievement—twice!
  • Witness the awe-inspiring scenery, wildlife, and whales present around the Antarctic Peninsula during this early austral summer departure.
  • Marvel at the massive icebergs and vast glaciers on a complimentary kayak excursion in Paradise Bay.

Step aboard a purpose-built, ice-class expedition vessel, with a fleet of Zodiac landing craft and a team of experienced expert expedition guides to experience the majesty and wonder of Earth’s last frontier up close and personal. This unique voyage is specially designed for those seeking adventure on Antarctica, with extra camping options allowing guests to test themselves like the explorers of old, extended stays on shore to allow longer showshoeing excursions, and a complimentary kayaking excursion included for all guests.

Departing Argentina’s southernmost city of Ushuaia, we cross the mighty Drake Passage en-route to the last continent. The unique X-Bow design of your expedition vessel offers exceptional stability at sea, giving you a smoother ride across some of Earth’s most challenging waters, while the vessel’s speed allows you to maximise your time in Antarctica to offer a superlative exploration experience.

Continuing southward from the South Shetland Islands, we will delve deeper into the inlets and bays of the Antarctic Peninsula, entering the famous Gerlache Strait, where glittering ice cliffs and precipitous peaks rise straight out of the frigid water. Icebergs, glaciers, mountains and rugged snowfields characterise this wildly beautiful alien landscape.

Shore landings and Zodiac safaris will allow us to experience penguin colonies, historical sites and breathtaking glaciers, while the knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team will offer a selection of specially crafted lectures to inform your matchless expedition experience.

With an extra day to explore compared to many other Antarctic voyages, you will have even more time to experience the White Continent. This voyage has no set itinerary – however, your Captain will always aim to visit locations which showcase the best of Antarctica; wildlife sightings and weather conditions will decide the exact sites we visit as we move with the rhythms of n...

Itinerary Day to Day

Day 1

Arrival Ushuaia, Embarkation

Arrive in Ushuaia, Argentina – the world’s southernmost city. Explore this vibrant Patagonian city, or stretch your legs in the surrounding forests. Alternatively, consider a day trip off the beaten path into the raw nature of Tierra del Fuego. The island of Tierra del Fuego is a hiker’s paradise with rugged snow-capped mountains, glaciers, flower-filled meadows and rich boggy wetlands. In the afternoon, we board our vessel, waiting to welcome us in port.

After our mandatory safety drill, our expedition begins as we navigate through the calm waters of the famous Beagle Channel (named for Charles Darwin’s ship). This steep-sided strait divides southern Tierra del Fuego between Chile and Argentina, and has been the jumping-off point for thousands of expeditions into the unknown. Watch out for whales and dolphins as we sail off the edge of the map into the tempestuous Drake Passage.
