At a Glance

As you cross the Drake Passage from Ushuaia, you’ll sail past towering icebergs slowly drifting away as the Antarctic finally comes into view — it’s like a dream come true. Penguins waddle through the snow and seals snooze on the sea ice, but when you see them up close from a kayak or Zodiac, you’ll be in awe of the natural wonderland that is Antarctica. With seasoned experts, navigate past whales feeding in rich waters and the delight in vivid hues of icebergs bobbing in the sea while comparing the landscapes of the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. While at sea and on land, learn from naturalists who will reveal the true nature of the world’s driest desert and the ecosystem that thrives there.
