Day 1: Buenos Aires
Charter flight from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia/Argentina, departure 19.00 hrs
Day 2: At Sea
Day 3: Falklands
Victorian houses in the middle of the South Pacific – explore British overseas territory in Stanley. Join the experts for a nature walk along the coast or visit the world’s southernmost Anglican cathedral.
Day 4-5: At Sea
Day 6-7: South Georgia
In this unique wildlife paradise, the Zodiacs are used several times a day to let you experience very special sightings. For example, standing with the experts in front of a gigantic colony of king penguins. The island is home to hundreds of thousands of animals inhabiting the steep slopes and coasts – such as Salisbury Plain or the Gold Harbour beach where fur seals and elephant seals will not be disturbed by your visit. At the former Grytviken whaling station, the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton recalls the adventures of times gone by.
Day 8: At Sea
Day 9-17: South Orkney Islands, South Shetland Islands, Antarctic Peninsula and Weddell Sea
South Orkney Islands
For scientists, the Antarctic is an enormous natural laboratory – and that includes this largely glaciated island group. You will also gain an insight into the everyday lives of polar researchers when, weather permitting, you will be taken in the Zodiacs to visit the Argentinian Orcadas Station (subject to authorisation). Enjoy the pure fascination of the drifting tabular icebergs which, with a bit of luck, you will see off Signy Island, for example. The bizarre blocks that have broken off the shelf ice and their huge archways shimmer a mystical shade of blue in the cool polar light. And you will pass close by on board the ship – simply breathtaking.
South Shetland Islands & Antarctica Peninsula
Enjoy unforgettable moments with a tour in Paradise Bay. Snow-capped summits surround the bay, where icebergs drift and glaciers tower hundreds of metres above. The gigantic glacier cliffs, such as those of Neko Harbor, provide a unique backdrop. Gentoo penguins stretch as far as the eye can see, for example on Cuverville Island. One of the most impressive shipping passages in the world is the Lemaire Channel: mountains up to 1,000 m (3,281 ft) high line the strait of water. Where other ships have to give up, the new expedition class forges ahead for more adventures, for example in the middle of Deception Island’s flooded caldera.
Antarctic Sound & Weddell Sea
When cruising in the Antarctic Sound, the deck becomes your front-row seat for unique natural spectacles, for example when the water is suddenly parted by the fluke of a majestic whale. The Weddell Sea is home to breathtaking ice formations, some of which are as tall as a house and covered by Adelie penguins, and dense pack ice. How far can your expedition ship go? For example, in 1903, the Nordenskjöld expedition was forced to wait ten months to be rescued on the volcanic Paulet Island. Today, the island is home to countless penguins and, like Devil Island, makes for a very lively spectacle.
Day 18-19: Drake Passage
Day 20: Ushuaia
Ushuaia/Argentina, arrival 6.00 hrs. And then Charter flight to Buenos Aires.
