Antarctica

Duration: 13 Nights/ 14 Days

 Day 1 

Buenos Aires

Arrive at the Buenos Aires International airport, clear immigration, meet and greet with tour guide and transfer to hotel then the tour guide will escort you to the front desk for check-in formalities to get the room key. Here your voyage starts with an overnight stay at a first class hotel in Buenos Aires, the bustling capital of Argentina. We offer an optional city tour in the afternoon. Spend the evening at your leisure and discover”Paris of South America” for yourself.

Day 2

Buenos Aires/Ushuaia

The flight leaves Buenos Aires in the morning allowing you a few hours to explore Ushuaia or to join an optional excursion to Tierra del Fuego National Park. In the evening MS Fram sets her course through the scenic Beagle Channel for the Drake Passage and Antarctica.

 

Day 3

Drake Passage

In addition to spotting the wandering albatross and other seabirds from deck, the crossing of the Drake Passage features our lecture series focusing on the history, environment and wildlife of Antarctica. Our series also includes a thorough introduction to the Antarctic visitor guidelines from the Antarctic Treaty and International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO).

Day 4

Drake Passage

During these two days at sea, you have time to get prepared for Antarctica and the close encounters with Antarctica's wildlife, the penguins in particular. These amazing birds in their large, dense ‘rookeries’, some with 180,000 or more birds, will overwhelm you.

Day 5

Antarctica

Antarctica is different from anything else you will ever experience! Once we have crossed the Antarctic Convergence you will start feeling the air getting crisper and colder. You will begin to see Antarctic penguins in the water, and don’t forget to be on the lookout for the first iceberg. There are no permanent human inhabitants in Antarctica, but it is home to millions of penguins and the feeding area for thousands of whales. The penguins are fearless when encountering humans and they might be just as curious about you as you are about them.               
Some of the highlights during our time here are Deception Island and Half Moon Island, because of the resident colonies of chinstrap penguins. Enjoy beautiful vistas and the gentoo penguin colonies on Yankee Harbour, Cuverville Island, Neko Harbour and Paradise Harbour.      
On Petermann Island you will see thousands of adélie penguins. The British base in Port Lockroy is one of the most popular sites in Antarctica, and offers a peek into life on an Antarctic base in the 1950s. The nesting gentoo penguins surrounding the main building have become accustomed to the frequent human visitors.

The huge ice shelves of the Antarctic sound are home to an estimated half million adélie penguins as well as gentoo penguins, leopard seals, and killer whales. The best way to experience adélie penguins in Brown Bluff is to sit quietly and watch nature’s cutest comedians at work. When opportunities arise we will launch our kayaks, pitch tents ashore and take you on unforgettable hikes to explore one the most beautiful, untouched places on the planet.
