Highlights

  • Celebrate a guaranteed White Christmas in the most spiritually uplifting place on Earth.
  • Explore the mysterious channels and wildlife-rich waters of the Antarctic Sound, Weddell Sea, Peninsula & South Shetland Islands.
  • Spend an extra day unwinding in Ushuaia’s finest luxury hotel, the Arakur Resort & Spa.

Christmas is a time for magic, and nowhere is that more true than here in nature’s last magically untouched continent – Antarctica. We’ll share the holidays peacefully coexisting with Mother Nature herself, in the form of spectacular icebergs, colonies of Adelie and other penguin species, and an array of seals, while always on the lookout for a likely sighting of Orca whales on the hunt.

This special and unusual itinerary includes an extended, relaxing time in Ushuaia’s most luxurious resort pre-cruise, as well as rare time during your expedition in the Antarctic Sound on the eastern side of the peninsula, an area renowned for its giant tubular icebergs, while the Weddel Sea offers a geography unlike anywhere else on Earth.
