Antarctic Odyssey trip highlights

  • Journey from the vibrant culture of Buenos Aires to the ethereal landscapes of Antarctica.
  • Begin your adventure in Buenos Aires. Immerse yourself in the city's energy, explore its neighborhoods, and experience the unique blend of Latin American and European influences.
  • Transfer to Ushuaia, the Southernmost city in the world, which has served as the jumping-off point for Antarctic explorers for centuries. Discover the rugged landscapes, trek through pristine forests, and embrace the allure of Patagonia.
  • Set sail aboard your expedition cruise. Spend two days crossing on the infamous Drake’s Passage. Attend lectures from the expedition crew on a variety of topics, from glaciology to marine biology, ornithology, and Antarctic history.
  • As the rough seas of the Drake subside, be rewarded with the first sites of Antarctica: the South Shetland islands. Here, dramatic cliffs and pristine shores house thriving colonies of penguins, seabirds, and seals. Set off on Zodiac cruises to explore picturesque bays, visit research stations, and take your first steps on the pebbled Antarctic coastline.
  • Continue sailing south to the Antarctic peninsula. Navigate through iceberg-strewn waters, explore the untouched terrain, and witness the mesmerizing spectrum of ice formations. Encounter curious penguins, observe graceful seals, and maybe even catch a glimpse of majestic whales.
  • After sailing back to Ushuaia, fly to Buenos Aires for a night in vibrant civilization after days of solitude in the white continent.
