Highlights

Set sail through icy waters as we journey from Ushuaia to Antarctica. When we arrive in the thrilling and otherworldly seventh continent, we’ll enter expedition mode. We will monitor the conditions in order to select the best adventure possible, and will attempt kayaking, ice-cruising, wildlife watching, hiking, and more.

Explore the rolling green hills and white sands of the picturesque Falklands archipelago. Enjoy a visit to the charming capital, Stanley, and see the penguin, albatross, and seal colonies that populate the shores. We will then continue north to Puerto Madryn, where sandy beaches and a tranquil nature reserve await you.

Itinerary Day to Day

Day 1

Buenos Aires

If you thought romance was dead, you’ve never been to Buenos Aires. The sophisticated yet down-to-earth Argentine capital thrives on its strong traditions: proud soccer fans, a cultured theater scene, and the seductive tango. Wander past French and Italian architecture in Recoleta, finding respite from the summer sun in the sprawling plazas and parks of Palermo, where fleets of parrots and songbirds roost. At night, try a choice cut of steak in San Telmo before heading to a local bar, club, or confitería along Avenida Corrientes for a late night fueled by tango dancing.

Consider arriving a few days early to participate in our Pre-Program and explore the wild land of Patagonia.
