13 Day Antarctica Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Ushuaia

You can leave your worries behind about potential missed connections or flight delays when you land in the southernmost city in the world. 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.

Day 2: Explore Ushuaia

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.

Day 3: Welcome Aboard

Begin your day by either trekking through nature, discovering Ushuaia's charms, or simply relaxing at the resort until the transfer to the ship in the afternoon. Excitement mounts as you're welcomed on board by the Expedition Team and ship crew, followed by a briefing on safety and orientation, topped off with a vibrant Captain’s Welcome Dinner. Your journey to Antarctica has officially commenced!

Day 4 & 5: Drake Passage

Accompany the team of Polar Experts as you delve into all things related to Antarctica, from its abundant wildlife to its captivating history. Engage in our innovative Citizen Science initiative, or simply relax with a pair of binoculars, keenly observing the magnificent seabirds accompanying us as we traverse the Antarctic Convergence and enter Antarctic waters.

Day 6 & 7: South Shetland Islands

As you lay eyes on your initial, unforgettable view of an iceberg, the true magnitude of your impending journey starts to dawn on you. We've arrived at the volcanic South Shetland Islands, renowned for their astonishing richness and pristine natural allure – on land, in the sea, and in the skies above. From the secure and cozy confines of your Zodiac, skillfully maneuvering through the early season's floating ice and smaller icebergs, you eagerly anticipate your inaugural encounter with the splendor of Antarctica.

Day 8, 9 & 10: Antarctic Peninsula

As we venture deeper into Antarctica's otherworldly scenery, you're compelled to inhale deeply, contemplating the awe that must have gripped the early Antarctic explorers – the pioneers who first left their mark on the continent's freshly fallen snow. You'll witness an abundance of penguins joyfully returning to shore, eager to reunite with their partners and commence nest-building, while nearby, yawning Weddell seals provide entertaining antics from the ice. With Seaventure's robust ice-strengthened hull, we'll let the spirit of exploration guide us into some of Antarctica's most secluded and picturesque bays and harbors, where the possibility of landing on sea ice may arise. The aim is to embark on outings twice daily, offering you approximately six or more hours each day to intimately experience Antarctica. Even while onboard the ship, we maintain close proximity to the action as we navigate through ice, maneuver around icebergs, and pause to admire whales breaching right before the eyes. Whether you're in a kayak or a Zodiac, remember to observe both above and below the water's surface. During this season, the water is exceptionally clear, providing ample opportunities for wildlife encounters at every turn.

Day 11 & 12: Drake Passage Homeward

We bid farewell to this enchanting locale and begin the journey northward, traversing the renowned Drake Passage once more. Before concluding the expedition, we gather for one final celebration, reliving the collective adventures through a captivating photography slideshow. The experience culminates with a festive and memorable last meal enjoyed together.

Day 13: Disembark in Ushuaia

With broad smiles on the tired yet fulfilled faces, we disembark in the morning, where you'll probably catch a flight to Buenos Aires and beyond, carrying with you newfound inspiration and lasting transformation.
