December 2020


Journey by ship to a continent considered by many to be the ultimate travel destination where the wildlife is prolific and the scenery is staggeringly beautiful.  Your adventure begins in Argentina where you will have two nights to explore the exciting city of Buenos Aires and enjoy a tango show.  Fly to Ushuaia where you will board your ship and begin your journey to Antarctica. Sail through the Beagle Channel to the Antarctic Peninsula where you spend six enthralling days.  Here you will come across the countless penguin colonies that thrive in these ice strewn waters. Go ashore on deserted Antarctic islands and cruise in zodiacs to get close to icebergs and marvel at the dramatic, ever-changing landscapes. On board your ship, experienced lecturers have an in-depth knowledge of the biology, history and geology of this area. Come aboard for an adventure like no other!
