Itinerary Day to Day

Day 1

Arrival and Embarkation in Ushuaia

Arrive and embark in Ushuaia, Argentina – the world’s southernmost city. Explore bustling downtown, or the laid-back local countryside. Alternatively, consider a day trip off the beaten path into the raw, untamed nature of Tierra del Fuego. Ushuaia is a hiker’s paradise with rugged snow-capped mountains, glaciers, flower-filled meadows and ancient forests.

The modern expedition vessel Ocean Albatros awaits in port, and guests will embark the ship by mid-afternoon. The transfers from the city center to the ship are arranged . After being shown to your stateroom you will be given the mandatory safety briefing, while the captain gets ready to steer out into the South Atlantic Ocean.

Our journey begins as we navigate through the tranquil Beagle Channel, the strait marking the Chile-Argentina border in the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago.
