Why you'll love this trip

  • Journey to the end of the civilised world and your embarkation point at Ushuaia

  • South Georgia Island is incredibly rich in rare wildlife and history. See over 30 species of birds, including four penguin species, and visit the grave of the great explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton

  • Encounter whales, seals and penguins on regular Zodiac excursions along the plunging coastline of the Antarctic Peninsula

  • On-board lectures by polar experts provide great insight into the unique history, geology and wildlife of the region

  • Few people ever get the opportunity to set foot on the Great White Continent, but you'll be one of them

  • A diversity of possible landing sites and activities allows you to see the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula from multiple perspectives

  • This all-encompassing trip includes everything you need for peace of mind on your journey, such as your return flights from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, pre-expedition hotel accommodation, transfers to and from your ship, full meals and drinks on-board (including complimentary house wine, beer and spirits), waterproof expedition boots for shore landings (on loan) and emergency evacuation insurance.

Is this trip right for you?

  • Although our ice strengthened ships are big and sturdy, Antarctic waters can be unpredictable and rough. Some people may experience seasickness, especially through the Drake Passage and other open water crossings. Please be prepared with medications to combat this. There is also a doctor on-board should you need further assistance.

  • As you’d expect, temperatures in the Antarctic are freezing. A warm parka will be provided along with waterproof boots and unlimited hot drinks, but you should also bring base layers and lots of warm clothing. Please see the trip notes for further important information about what to bring.

  • Weather depending, you will be making regular excursions in a Zodiac boat to explore the local area and look for wildlife. It can get very cold and wet on the Zodiac, so make sure you are dressed appropriately and that you keep your camera safe and dry. Sturdy sea legs are needed as you make wet and dry landings from the boat, and on steep terrain, snow and other uneven surfaces. Some ships have a lot of stairs, so please hold on to the handrails if seas are rough.

  • The weather plays a pivotal part in this adventure and although there’s an itinerary in place, there are no guarantees that you’ll be able to do everything that is planned for. A level of flexibility and openness to embracing the unexpected are important in expedition travel, especially to such a remote area. There are nearly 200 recognised sites in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands; the places mentioned in the itinerary may need to be changed to others (which are equally as interesting). We may also be confined to the ship during rough weather. The on-board library and educational lectures are ideal ways for keeping entertained.

Katie and James’s TOP TIP # Don't take your climbing/hiking boots unless you are doing something serious. The snow is soft and wellies/gumboots are fine even for moderate hill climbs. .
