Polar Circle Quest
Travel further south than most travelers ever go - voyage across the polar circle, when you embark on this adventure with on 90 guests onboard the small ship, the Ushuaia!
This 12 day Antarctica cruise is the ultimate bucket list adventure. Embarking on our trip to Antarctica from Ushuaia Argentina, the Ushuaia vessel creates a comfortable environment for crossing the Drake Passage and then on to the Antarctic Peninsula. As we cruise there is opportunity to engage in a series of lectures about the natural history of this incredible polar land, as well as learn about navigating the ship and of course, witness the stunning wildlife. On this Antarctic cruise delving ever more southward to the polar circle, glaciers, icebergs, picturesque inlets greet the avid explorer - and their camera! As well as incredible amounts of seabirds and penguins, seals and hopefully humpback whales.
Our Antarctica cruise allows guests to make landings on Antarctic soil (or snow and ice!) and get up close to the unique inhabitants as well as visit sites of historic and scientific significance.
Join the quest for the Polar Circle!
Viva's Best Bits...
This is certainly a buck list adventure - there will be the opportunity to land on the continent of Antarctica, plus cross the Antarctic circle, located at a latitude of 66°33′48.1″ S. Very few have gone this far south!
See many different penguin species, their antics will be sure to keep you entertained. Plus there is plenty of other life in Antarctic - leopard seals, Crabeater seal, albatross, petrels, orca and other whales.
"The MV Ushuaia is one of the smaller vessels going to Antarctica, only 90 passengers, so great if you want to experience Antarctica with a small number of people" Tara, Team Viva
