Crossing the Antarctic Circle from Ushuaia

Cast off from Ushuaia, Argentina, to embark on an adventure to one of the most beautiful and remote locations on the planet. Sail across the notorious Drake Passage bound for the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Explore a world covered in ice and snow; marvel at the odd shapes and spectacular hues of drifting icebergs; spot albatross, cormorants, seals, penguins and whales; and discover the land of the midnight sun – the blues and whites of Antarctica are truly breathtaking.

Activities

    Highlights

    • Follow in the path of legendary explorers as you cross the (sometime turbulent) Drake Passage. Weather permitting, squeeze through the photogenic Lemaire Channel between the mountains of Booth Island and the Antarctic continent
    • This is one for the wildlife lovers too – get up close to minke, humpback and orca whales, gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins, with albatross overhead. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a leopard seal
    • Few people ever get the opportunity to set foot on the Great White Continent or venture as deep into Antarctica as past the Antarctic Circle, but you’ll be one of the unique few
    • There are lots of possible Zodiac landing sites and activities, allowing you to see the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula from multiple perspectives
