2021/2022 Round-trip from Buenos Aires, Argentina
Quite simply, Antarctica defies the imagination. Pristine and strikingly beautiful, this awe-inspiring region of untouched icescapes, mountains rising from the sea, and incredible, diverse wildlife will literally take your breath away.
Wake up to spectacular scenery and ice-filled channels, and spend your days marveling at the many wonders along the Antarctic Peninsula. Set out exploring and immerse yourself in the grand spectacle. The constantly changing weather, scenery and colors provide opportunities for professional and amateur photographers alike.
Buenos Aires to Ushuaia
Your journey into wonder begins as you fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, known as the southernmost city in the world, where the crew will warmly greet you as you board Scenic Eclipse. Settle into your handsomely appointed suite and acquaint yourself with the luxurious facilities of your Discovery Yacht. Toast the start of your voyage at the welcome cocktail reception hosted by the Captain who will introduce your expert Discovery Leaders and their team. Set sail and cruise through the Beagle Channel and admire the dramatic views of the Andean mountains of Tierra del Fuego from the comfort of your private verandah.
Relax and enjoy the amazing facilities of your floating resort as you cruise towards the Antarctic Peninsula. An entertaining presentation by the Discovery Team in the state-of-the-art theatre will excite you for what’s to come, or relax in your suite and watch the live streaming on your TV. Your palate will be delighted as you explore the extensive range of dining options, or a butler will serve you as you dine in-suite. The first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains signal that you have reached the Antarctic Peninsula.
Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, a host of choices are now open and, depending on the ice and weather conditions, the Antarctic Peninsula is yours to explore. Your experienced Discovery Team Leaders, who have made countless journeys to Antarctica, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day, making the most of 18–20 hours of daylight.
Partake in daily Scenic Discovery excursions. Cruise on the Zodiacs around ice formations, step onto islands to view vast penguin rookeries and seals. Kayak around icebergs and hear the ice cracking and whales feeding below.
Your expert Captain and crew will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways which may include traversing the stunning 11-kilometre-long Lemaire Channel where steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage just 700 meters wide at its narrowest point. There may be the chance to visit a working scientific base and discuss life in these harsh conditions with the staff. In late February and March, if conditions are favorable, there may be the opportunity to cross the Antarctic Circle at latitude 66°33’ South.
