Details

Sail deep into Antarctica’s furthest reaches on this adventure of a lifetime. The ice on the Weddell Sea is too thick to navigate for most of the year, so only the lucky few get to experience this corner of Antarctica. Immerse yourself in polar history sailing where Ernest Shackleton’s ship became trapped in the ice in 1915. Watch giant tabular icebergs float past, and lookout for emperor penguins – a rare sight on any other Antarctic cruise.

Trip Highlights

Dare to brave the notoriously rough two-day Drake Passage sea crossing
Compare monumental icebergs in the Gerlache Strait and Antarctic Sound as you head to the Weddell Sea
Get up close to hundreds of penguins as they gather in their thousands in their natural habitat
Keep an eye out at sea for breaching whales and huge albatross overhead
Listen to our engaging polar experts and learn tips from our team of experienced photographers

Itinerary

Ushuaia
Day 1
Nestled in the foothills of the snow-capped Martial Range, Ushuaia’s colourful streets and mismatched buildings cascade from the imposing mountains before coming to an abrupt halt at the shores of the Beagle Channel. As one of the world’s southernmost cities, Ushuaia carries its ‘end of the world’ reputation well. The moody weather and dramatic surroundings certainly help. Board your boutique ship before departing for your journey through one of the most captivating wilderness regions of the world.
Day at sea
Day 2-3
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Antarctic Peninsula
Day 4-9
Among captivating glaciers, majestic icebergs and snowy islands, the Antarctic Peninsula is where most visitors to the White Continent live their Antarctica dream. It's the most accessible part, with scientific bases and incredible scenery. Shore excursions might include Petermann Island, where among Adelie penguins, blue-eyed shags and skuas, huge, lumbering elephant seals haul out.
Day at sea
Day 10-11
Today as you sail, you’ll bask in the endless comforts of your ship. From the deck, marvel at the dramatic sea views. Relax with a nurturing facial treatment or massage in the spa or delve into the ship’s learning resources. Or, simply take refuge in your cabin and enjoy the opportunity to rest.
Ushuaia
Day 12
Ushuaia is the gateway to the White Continent. Nestled in the foothills of the snow-capped Martial Range in Argentina's Patagonia region, Ushuaia’s colourful streets and mismatched buildings cascade from the imposing mountains before coming to an abrupt halt at the shores of the Beagle Channel. Often described as 'the End of the World', the city carries the reputation well - the moody weather and dramatic surroundings certainly help.
