Day 1 Buenos Aires, Brazil

Buenos Aires, Argentina

In 1580, Spanish explorer Juan de Garay planted the seeds of what would become Buenos Aires. Today, it flourishes as the captivating capital of Argentina and a cosmopolitan metropolis that elegantly straddles two worlds.

Often hailed as the ‘Paris of South America,’ Buenos Aires enchants with its blend of European elegance and Latin American vibrancy. As a sister city to global hubs like Moscow and Miami, Buenos Aires wears its rich cultural heritage on its sleeve. Its architectural diversity is a testament to a past deeply rooted in both the Old and New Worlds, offering a visual narrative that spans centuries and continents.

Day 2 Ushuaia, Argentina

Ushuaia Port, Argentina

Fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia. Once deemed too harsh for European settlement, Ushuaia’s rugged beauty was the realm of its native inhabitants – the Yahgan People. Today, it holds the distinctive title of being the southernmost city on Earth, often referred to as ‘the end of the world.’ Thanks to its strategic location and proximity to the Antarctic Peninsula, Ushuaia has earned its status as the gateway to the Great White Continent. Yet, Ushuaia is more than just a stepping stone to Antarctica. It’s a treasure trove of natural history, indigenous heritage, and the spirit of exploration. Spend the day exploring, before boarding the ship.

Days 3 – 4 At Sea

Bird at Sea

Use this time as you please. Relax by making the most of the on board facilities, or keep an eye out for birds and marine life as you sail.

Days 5 – 10 Antarctic Peninsula


It’s almost impossible to describe the feeling of arriving in Antarctica. Spotting your first iceberg and taking a deep breath of some of the most fresh, crisp air on earth is an experience that will stay with you forever.

Your experienced expedition team, who have made countless journeys to this area, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day, choosing the best options based on the prevailing weather, ice conditions and wildlife opportunities.

You will generally make landings or Zodiac excursions twice a day. You’ll want to rug up before joining Zodiac cruises along spectacular ice cliffs or among grounded icebergs, keeping watch for whales, seals and porpoising penguins. Zodiacs will also transport you from the ship to land, where you can visit penguin rookeries, discover historic huts and explore some of the best spots along the peninsula.

Days 11 – 12 At Sea

Long Finned Pilot Whales

As you sail, catch up with fellow expeditioners in the bar, keep watch for wildlife from the open bridge, or learn more of wildlife and history from the expert guides.

Day 13 – 15 South Georgia

King Penguins Gold Harbour South Georgia

Largely untouched and blessed with a sub-Antarctic climate and nutrient-rich seas, South Georgia represents a sort of Lost Eden of unspoiled wildlife habitat. Although ice and snow are present, the islands are strikingly green with vegetation as compared with Antarctica. They teem with wildlife, including massive populations of king and other penguin species, fur seals, elephant seals, albatrosses, giant petrels, and other seabirds. Whales, orcas and dolphins abound offshore in the most diverse marine ecosystem on earth. Your captain and expedition leader plan your days in South Georgia to offer you a variety of experiences in this remote and enchanting destination, based on conditions and wildlife reports. These will certainly include visits to historic communities such as Grytviken, with its memorial to Ernest Shackleton, the immense breeding colony of king penguins on the Salisbury Plain and other highlights, along with less well-known, but equally unforgettable sites. Your veteran expedition team members enrich your experience during presentations and in casual conversations and interpret passing sights during time spent cruising. They will also accompany you on landings at the various sites and excursions in Zodiacs and kayaks.

Days 16 – 17 At Sea

Albatross at Sea

As you approach the Falkland Islands, spend your days at sea watching for wildlife from the observation decks aboard.

Days 18 – 20 Falkland Islands

Red houses Stanley island

You are likely to visit the following sites in the Falkland Islands:

West Point Island: a large colony of black-browed albatrosses come to breed on this island. Along with rockhopper penguins, they reside between the rocky ledges and among the tussock grass.  Other species can also be seen throughout the island: fur seals and sea lions visit its shores and dolphins frequent its harbor.

Saunders Island: It was here, at Port Egmont, that the first British settlers made their mark in 1765. But it’s not just human history that makes the island so fascinating—it’s a veritable sanctuary for wildlife. The island is home to five different species of penguin—king, macaroni, gentoo, rockhopper, and the occasional magellanic—each adding to the island’s vibrant biodiversity.

Port Stanley: the largest settlement on the islands, is a charming enclave with a population of over 2,000. Its quaint gardens, delightful tea rooms, brightly hued houses, and cozy hotels exude a distinctly Victorian aura.

Days 20 – 21 At Sea

Whale and Antarctic Tern

As you sail towards Ushuaia, you may choose precious time editing photos, enjoying the onboard facilities, or attend final lectures. Celebrate the end of an unforgettable voyage with newfound friends.

Days 22 Disembark Ushuaia


During the early morning, you will cruise up the Beagle Channel, before quietly slipping into dock in Ushuaia – which holds the distinctive title of being the southernmost city on Earth, often referred to as ‘the end of the world’ – where you will be free to disembark around 8.00 am. Farewell your expedition team and fellow passengers.
