Itinerary

  • Immerse yourself in the raw beauty of the Great White Continent.

    Welcome to the pinnacle of expedition travel - Antarctica. It's a place of extremes, where the wildlife and landscape paint a picture like nowhere else in the world. The extraordinary islands around the Antarctic Peninsula are a stunning reward for those who conquer the infamous Drake Passage - which is all of you - and amid the Antarctic's barren beauty you may well encounter orcas, humpback whales, seals and penguins. Explore the ice-filled waters by Zodiac then set foot on the rock and ice that makes up this mysterious continent, and spend your evenings enjoying the state-of-the-art ship and its health and wellness facilities. You'll be talking about this journey for years to come.

    Day 1 Ushuaia

    Welcome to Ushuaia, Argentina, the world's southernmost city. You'll be briefed at the hotel tonight on the journey and details for tomorrow's embarkation, but if you happen to arrive early there are a surprising amount of ways to entertain yourself at 'the End of the World'. Check out the Museo Maritimo to brush up on the region's history, or take a stroll down Avenida San Martin if you're after any last-minute essentials before departing. Oh, and did we mention this is Argentina - if all else fails, head to a local restaurant to get your fill of red wine and steak. Muy bueno.

    Special Information
    An arrival transfer from the airport on day 1 is included in your voyage fare.

    Day 2 Ushuaia (Embark)

    This afternoon you'll board the Ocean Endeavour, settle into your cabin and begin cruising down the stunning Beagle Channel, named for Charles Darwin's ship. The channel transects the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in the extreme south of South America, and as the ship pulls away from port there's always an air of anticipation. Wave goodbye to Argentina and know that the next time you see land you'll be staring at Antarctica.

    Day 3 to 4 Drake Passage

    The time has come to cross the Drake Passage, the legendary body of water named after English explorer Sir Francis Drake. If the conditions are right, enjoy some time out on deck to spot dolphins, orcas or perhaps albatross. If the waters are a little rough, the Ocean Endeavour is equipped with some seriously lush facilities for you to take advantage of. As well as safety briefings, a comprehensive lecture program will run throughout the journey delivered by experts in Antarctica's history, geology and biology. With any luck we'll make it to land by early evening on day 4 - a moment that always brings much excitement.

    Day 5 to 8 Antarctic Peninsula

    The adventure truly begins once the Antarctic Convergence is left in your wake and exchanged for four incredible days of exploring the Antarctic Peninsula. Stare wide-eyed at glaciers, mountains and an unimaginable array of wildlife as the sheer magnitude and rawness of the area comes to light. Every day is a new adventure, and you'll explore ice-filled bays and channels as well as Antarctica itself on Zodiac excursions and by foot. While the landscapes will no doubt take your breath away, Antarctica is all about the wildlife. Visit penguin rookeries, spot humpback and minke whales and look out for leopard seals, all while calving glaciers crack through the immense silence.

    Day 9 to 10 At Sea

    Say goodbye to the Antarctic Peninsula as we begin our return leg to Ushuaia. Take the opportunity to share photographs with fellow travellers, use your now expert skills in wildlife spotting and enjoy the final lectures from your polar experts. It's also a great opportunity to make use of the Ocean Endeavour's health and wellness facilities, including its saunas, spa, heated pool, yoga classes and gym.

    Day 11 Ushuaia (Disembark)

    Your Antarctic adventure draws to a close after breakfast this morning. Farewell your shipmates and transfer to the airport if you're flying out today, or perhaps spend some more time exploring this incredible part of the world.
