Extraordinary Landscapes of Antarctica Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Fly from the UK to Buenos Aires.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires

Arrive in Buenos Aires where you will enjoy an overnight stay.

Day 3 - Buenos Aires - Ushuaia

Fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, where you'll board Scenic Eclipse. Within the Tierro del Fuego archipelago, adventurers flock to Ushuaia for its excellent hiking, sailing and kayaking.

Day 4 - At sea

Make yourself at home on board Scenic Eclipse, where luxury is almost limitless. As we sail south, wildlife spotting opportunities abound; our Discovery Team will be out on deck looking for albatross, prions, petrels that follow the ship and they will begin their lectures on history and geology of the Falkland Islands and the Southern Ocean.

Day 5 - 6 - Falkland Islands

Remote and sparsely populated, Falkland Islands is a wildlife lovers paradise. We will visit a number of the outer islands, where large colonies of penguins and albatross thrive. Fur seals and elephant seals scatter sandy beaches; while the surrounding waters are home to whales and dolphins. We will visit the very British capital, Stanley and its small but thriving community.

Day 7 - At sea

Sailing towards South Georgia gives us time to slow to the rhythm of the sea. There will be plenty of time to relax and be entranced by the many seabirds we'll encounter on our way. You may decide to join the avid whale watchers hoping to get a glimpse of leviathan, or simply contemplate the vastness of the sea.

Day 8 - 12 - South Georgia

South Georgia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island is a tiny speck in the vastness of the South Atlantic Ocean, one of the most remote parts of our planet. A 3,000-metre mountain range forms the spine of this long, narrow island. Between the mountains, shattered glaciers carve their way through tussock grass to the deeply indented coastline. Despite being such a small outpost in the vastness of the south Atlantic, the sea around South Georgia is one of the most productive areas on Earth. The abundant marine life supports millions of seals, whales, penguins and other seabirds. As we explore South Georgia, we will have the opportunity to reflect on Shackleton's epic journey.

Day 13 - At sea

Time spent at sea is yours to do with as you please. Our world-class amenities are certain to keep you busy, from our on board theatre and Spa Sanctuary, to wonderful dining experiences and once-in-a-lifetime sightseeing opportunities. Spot icebergs and marine life from the comfort of your private verandah.

Day 14 - 18 - Antarctica

The Antarctic Peninsula contains some of the world's most impressive scenery and wildlife. A network of channels surrounded by towering mountain peaks covered in snow and enormous glaciers abound.
