Highlights of Antarctica
Experience the highlights of the Antarctica Continent; polar landscapes, glaciers, icebergs, penguins, whales and other Antarctica wildlife on this cruise package, starting in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Fly to Buenos Aires, where your adventure begins, soak up the local Latin American vibes in this funky city, often referred to as the Paris of South America. Join a charter flight to Ushuaia, where either the MS Fridtjof Nansen or MS Roald Amundsen (depending on departure date) will be waiting to take you to Antarctica. Both are state of the art, next generation expedition vessels, using a battery hybrid powered propulsion system. They are specifically designed to take you to remote regions like Antarctica in comfort; with an onboard science centre, 3 restaurants, gym, wellness centre, large indoor and outdoor observation decks, infinity pool and hot tubs. All cabins onboard are outside cabins and over half of them have private balconies.
After crossing the Drake passage, five awe inspiring days will be spent in Antarctica, the peninsula and the South Shetland Islands, with plenty of time for shore landings on the frozen white continent. We explore the icy bays, looking for penguins colonies, seals, whales, sea birds and more. Explore by zodiac and get up close to wildlife, glaciers and more! Land in Antarctica, perhaps even opt to kayak or hike in Antarctica. See the outstanding sights of Antarctica on this Highlights of the Frozen Continent expedition.
