Instead, savor an additional day to relax and indulge in the luxurious accommodations of Ushuaia’s premier hotel, the Arakur Resort & Spa. Whether you choose to unwind in the infinity pool, venture into the hiking trails encircling the resort, or explore the charms of the southernmost city on the globe, you're in for a treat.

Embark on an adventure through the attractions of Ushuaia, from its museums to the bustling Argentinean leather markets. Alternatively, you can opt to extend your relaxation at the hotel. Join us for the evening briefing at the Arakur, where you can engage with fellow travelers and seek answers to any inquiries you may have.

Upon arrival, the Expedition Team and ship crew will warmly greet you and assist with settling in. Following this, we'll conduct a safety briefing and orientation, culminating in a delightful Captain's welcome dinner. The journey to Antarctica begins!

Day 4 & 5: Drake Passage

Accompany the team of Polar Experts as they impart their extensive understanding of Antarctica, spanning its captivating wildlife to its rich history. Engage in the innovative Citizen Science initiative or simply relax and absorb the allure of this legendary voyage, catching sight of seldom-seen wildlife along the way. Keep your binoculars at the ready to spot the myriad seabirds accompanying the ship as we navigate through the Antarctic Convergence into the cooler waters of Antarctica.

Day 6: South Shetland Islands

Over the years, the volcanic activity shaping the South Shetland Islands has sculpted a geological landscape unparalleled elsewhere. Here, you'll encounter a breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, and diverse wildlife, including Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins, with occasional encounters with Elephant and Fur seals sharing the shores. Whale sightings are also frequent. Thus, we'll embark on the Zodiacs, dedicating most of the day to exploration. For kayakers, it's an opportunity to experience the sensation of gliding just inches above the pristine Antarctic waters. Whether on land or sea, aboard a zodiac or kayak, brace yourself for an immersive introduction to this extraordinary corner of the globe.

Day 7, 8 & 9: Glorious Antarctica

This is the opportunity to explore a variety of scenic bays and harbors, navigating through channels abundant with icebergs and into waters teeming with wildlife. We're likely to encounter a multitude of charming penguins, seals, and whales, both in the sea and along the rugged coastlines. Additionally, we'll have excellent chances to visit several active scientific bases and historic landing sites during the typical two outings per day. For those who opt in, a night of camping under the starlit sky promises an unforgettable experience. The priority is always to maximize the length and adventure of the off-ship excursions, so get ready to immerse yourself fully in all that Antarctica has to offer.

Day 10 & 11: Drake Passage

As we bid farewell to this enchanting realm, expect to depart feeling inspired, fatigued, and quite possibly transformed forever. The journey takes us northward, traversing the renowned Drake Passage once more. To mark the culmination of the expedition, we'll commemorate the experiences with a special slideshow and photography awards ceremony, followed by a final communal meal together.

Day 12: Ushuaia Disembarkation

With broad smiles gracing the tired yet satisfied visages, and perhaps forming lifelong bonds with newfound companions, we disembark in the morning. You have the option to either catch a flight to Buenos Aires or extend your stay in Ushuaia for further exploration and adventure.
