Spend an unforgettable festive season during a 18-day expedition cruise in the Antarctic.  

 

Leaving from Ushuaia, Le Boreal proposes an exceptional circuit into the heart of the 6th continent. From Argentina to the Antarctic Peninsula via the Falkland Islands, let yourself be surprised by the beauty of this land of ice where time appears to be standing still.  

 

First of all, your ship will take you to the Falkland Islands. This archipelago is a wild land of unique panoramas with jagged relief, home to very rich wildlife. 

 

You will then head for South Georgia, with a port of call planned in Grytviken. This former whaling station houses the tomb of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the first British adventurer to have crossed from the Atlantic to the Pacific via the South Pole in 1917. 

 

Further south, you’ll cross the Weddell Sea in the company of penguins, wandering albatrosses and Weddell seals, with sumptuous scenery of tabular icebergs.

 

The arrival on the Antarctic Peninsula will be the highpoint of your voyage, as you visit its most emblematic sites: Neko Harbour, Paradise Bay, Pleneau Island, Port Charcot, Wilhelmina Bay and Deception Island.

 

You’ll then head back to Ushuaia via Drake Passage, to finish this amazing loop through the magic of the Antarctic.
