Highlights of Antarctica Special Offer

Enjoy an overnight stay in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, where an optional city tour showcases the highlights. Take an early morning flight to Ushuaia to join your ship and cross the Drake Passage to Antarctica. Take part in lectures and watch films about the frozen landscape.

Spend six days exploring the Antarctic wilderness where there will be non-stop photo opportunities. Come close to penguins and seals and feel like a real explorer setting foot on the snow and ice. The final route will depend on the weather conditions. One of the highlights may be sailing into the harbour of Deception Island where you will see an abandoned whaling station and a derelict British base. You may also visit Half Moon Bay or Yankee Harbour, home to a staggering number of Gentoo penguins. Other highlights may include Neko Bay, Paradise Bay and Wilhelmina Bay.

After discovering the white landscape of Antarctica cross the Drake passage back to Ushuaia for a return flight to Buenos Aires.
