Crossing the Antarctic Circle

A 15 day trip to the great white land of Antarctica, which will hopefully take you further south than most people ever reach, with a host of wildlife viewing opportunities on the way.

The coldest, driest, and most remote continent on earth, Antarctica will take your breath away. Sail pristine waterways, cruise along in comfortable Zodiacs, and walk on shores where legendary explorers once stood. Your expedition ship will transport you in comfort, and your expert expedition team will delight you with stories of penguins and icebergs. 


What makes this trip extraordinary?

  • See penguins, seals, and whales as you sail through pristine waterways.
  • Test your photography skills and find new ways to capture curious penguins.
  • Be one of the few people to say they have crossed the Antarctic Circle.
  • Enjoy the absolute silence of the wildest continent on earth.

Day by day

Day by day

Day 1


Arrive into Ushuaia and settle in to your hotel for the night. Choose to walk around the town and try the local restaurants, or walk down to the waterfront to take a photo with the famous sign that welcomes you to ‘fin del mundo’ – the end of the earth.

Day 2

Ushuaia - Embark Expedition Ship

Explore a bit more of Ushuaia before boarding your expedition ship. You’ll have some time to get to know the ship as you meet your fellow passengers and sail out into the beautiful Beagle Channel.

(B, D)

Days 3-4

Drake Passage

With excitement in the air you will sail across the Drake Passage. Regardless of the seas - which are often notoriously rough - once you get your first glimpse of Antarctica the crossing will suddenly be forgotten. Look out for the wandering albatross, and various other seabirds that will follow your journey to the Peninsula.

(B, L, D)

Days 5-12

Antarctic Peninsula & Antarctic Circle

As you sail south with the intention of crossing the Antarctic Circle, the landscape becomes wilder and more spectacular. The goal will be to sail into Martha Strait or Marguerite Bay, but will be dependent on ice conditions. As you head north again, you will be able to marvel at the icebergs which resemble sculpted works of art, as well as the colossal tabular icebergs which dwarf the Zodiacs as you sail past them. You’ll of course want to spend some time with the abundance of penguins which call Antarctica home, as they hop and wander across the beaches, sometimes coming right up to you as you sit in awe.

(B, L, D)

Days 13-14

Drake Passage

As you sail north again across the Antarctic Convergence, you’ll have some time to reflect on the experience, or watch the seabirds swoop around the decks as you get closer to Ushuaia. Enjoy a final dinner and slideshow on board as you sail into the Beagle Channel.

(B, L, D)

Day 15


This morning, disembark in Ushuaia after breakfast and head to the airport, or to your hotel if you are staying longer to explore this beautiful town at the end of the earth.
