DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

Day 1 Ushuaia: Arrive in Ushuaia anytime today or take advantage of complimentary flexible arrival program and arrive up to 24 hours in advance. You will be staying at the beautiful Arakur Hotel and Resort, a member of Leading Hotels of the World. Explore the trails, take a spa, relax and soak in the surroundings, or head into #Ushuaia and browse the Argentinean leather market. Our optional evening briefing is a great opportunity for you to ask questions and to meet some of your fellow travelers. Enjoy a complimentary buffet breakfast in the morning

Day 2 Embarkation: This morning, we are free to explore Ushuaia or unwind at the resort until our mid-afternoon transfer to the ship. On board, we’ll be greeted by our Expedition Team and the Ship’s Officers. Enjoy the captain’s welcome dinner. After dinner, relax and take in the scenery on our early evening sail through the Beagle Channel, past Magellanic Penguin, Rock Cormorant, and Sea Lion colonies.

Day 3-4 Drake Passage: As we make our way ever closer to the white continents, numerous Polar Experts will prepare us with presentations on everything Antarctic, from wildlife to history. Eventually, we will cross the Antarctic Convergence where we will notice a distinct drop of temperature as we enter the waters of the Antarctic Ocean.

Those interested in Citizen Science can take part in Sea Bird Sighting surveys, or help collect salinity samples and weather data along the way. We’re likely to witness some spectacular sights, from icebergs to an array of seabirds and whale species. If we’re lucky, we may see some of them fully breach from the sea.

Day 5-9 Antarctica: In the waterways of the Antarctic Peninsula, we will hope to make as much time as possible to explore by inflatable Zodiac boats and marvel up close at nature’s glory. Our Expedition Leader and Captain will create a flexible itinerary based on weather, ice, and opportunity. We will aim for the most scenic bays and channels of the Peninsula with stops at penguin rookeries, seal wallows, bird colonies and whale feeding areas, as well as sites of historic and scientific interest.

The trip may include picturesque Neko Harbor, sheltered Paradise Harbor, the Humpback Whale favored Wilhelmina Bay, the striking Lemaire Channel, the wildlife-filled Penola Channel, or the majestic Neumayer Channel. We may stop at an active scientific base such as Poland’s Arctowksi or Ukrain’s Vernadskiy as well as history base such as U.K.’S Port Lockroy or Wordie House.

Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins abound, and Weddell, Crabeater and Elephant Seals are often found hauled out to rest along with predatory Leopard Seals and the assertive Antarctic Fur Seal.

Humpback Whales are frequent visitors in the late (Feb-Mar) and Orca sightings are also common.

Day 10-11 Drake Passage: As we leave this magical place and make our way north, heading again across the Antarctic Convergence and Drake Passage, we will continue our presentation series and wildlife spotting. Sailing back to Ushuaia through the Beagle Channel, we celebrate the conclusion of our expedition with a special slideshow.

Day 11 Ushuaia Disembarkation: Morning disembarkation lets you catch a flight to Buenos Aires or stay in Ushuaia for more sights and adventure.
