Itinerary

The starting point of the expedition is Ushuaia, where you should get by your own. We are ready to help with the purchase of tickets. If necessary, leave a comment in the order.

Day 1 Ushuaia, Argentina

Ushuaia is the world’s southernmost city. Upon your arrival at the airport you will be transferred to your hotel.

 

For the rest of the day you are free to explore the city. Take advantage of souvenir shopping and a variety of dining options in the city center.

Day 2 Embarkation in Ushuaia

In the afternoon you will be transferred to the pier. Here, you will embark the luxury expedition ship M/V Sea Spirit.

 

Explore the ship and get comfortable in your home away from home. Savor the anticipation of your Antarctic dreams coming true as we slip our moorings and sail toward a true wilderness where wildlife abounds.

 

The scenery as we sail through the Beagle Channel on our first evening is wonderful and there is already the possibility of marine mammal encounters.

Day 3-4 Across the Drake Passage

After transiting the Beagle Channel and passing the islands of Tierra del Fuego, the ship heads south across the Drake Passage.

 

Pelagic seabirds including the majestic albatross are common in these waters. On the way the Antarctic Convergence will be crossed, the biological boundary of the Southern Ocean.

 

The ship’s stabilizing fins provide comfort in the event of rough seas. Briefings, orientations, and lectures from expert staff will prepare you for the arrival in Antarctica.

Day 5-9 South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula

Upon reaching Antarctic Peninsula we take advantage of long daylight hours to exploit every opportunity to experience excellent wildlife viewing, amazing scenery, and excursions via Zodiac.

 

The South Shetland Islands are the northernmost islands in Antarctica and will likely be our first sighting of land. This wild and beautiful island chain contains numerous landing sites with abundant wildlife and historical significance. Among them is Deception Island, where the flooded caldera of an active volcano harbors an abandoned whaling station.            

Farther south, on the Antarctic Peninsula, the vast Gerlache Strait area contains sheltered bays, accessible wildlife, and stunning scenery. Places with names like Paradise Bay are the epitome of everything Antarctic: glaciated mountains, towering icebergs, feeding whales, seals on ice floes, and bustling penguin colonies.

 

At the southern end of Gerlache Strait is the famous Lemaire Channel, also known as “Kodak Gap” because of the photogenic way the mountainous sides of the narrow channel are reflected in calm waters strewn with icebergs.

Day 10-11 Back across the Drake Passage

After amazing time in Antarctica we will cross back north through the bountiful waters of the Drake Passage.

 

Presentations and workshops by the expert staff, as well as our range of onboard recreation facilities, ensure that these days at sea are not idly spent. This is also the time for our End of Voyage ceremonies including slideshow and farewell dinner.

Day 12 Disembarkation in Ushuaia, Argentina

After breakfast you will say farewell in the city of Ushuaia. There is a group transfer to the airport or to the town center if you wish to spend more time here.

Eligibility +

There are no specific physical requirements for travel in polar regions. However, the purchased expedition cruise is a cruise to the remote region of the world on a ship which, at times, may be in rough seas.

As part of pre-departure forms Operator will require information as to the insurance company, policy number, amount of coverage and 24-hour contact number.
