This is an experience not to be missed! 25% off an amazing Antarctica Cruise to the Weddell Sea, in search of the Emperor Penguin with helicopters! This is your unique chance to be part of a real expedition voyage. Includes 5 nights in Buenos Aires and Ushuaia, the city at the end of the world!
This trip of a lifetime begins in beautiful Buenos Aires, the Paris of Latin America. Take in the bustling street life of the city, seeing the historical districts and tracing along the way the history of Tango. Eating out, you’ll be spoiled for choice with Argentine cuisine which is renowned for its amazing meats and wines. Buenos Aires is the best place to start your holiday in Argentina!
After the buzz of the city, you’ll fly to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, the “end of the earth”, where you’ll have 2 days to relax or explore before you begin your cruise.
The first two days will be spent sailing across the Drake Passage. During this time you will be able to see a variety of sea birds. Once near the South shetland Islands, we spot our first icebergs!
During our voyage we hope to catch sight of the majestic Emperor Penguin, and our itinerary will be built around this objective. The Emperor Penguin rookery is situated south of Snow Hill Island. Although the ship will probably not be able to reach that far through the ice (less than 50 % chance based on voyages in the last three seasons), the idea is mainly to situate in or between the Antarctic Sound and James Ross Island, close to the ice-edge and observe the emperor penguins on their way to the open water. You will travel in helicopters to search for the Emperor Penguins.
This amazing Antarctic cruise features regular shore excursions to walk among the many penguins and other wildlife, along with a fascinating and informative lecture program presented by the expert expedition crew.
The perfect start to an exciting adventure. Stay in a 1930s art deco inspired boutique hotel in the heart of Buenos Aires.
OPTIONAL EXTRA: Walking with penguins & Harberton Ranch
Get into the pioneering spirit with a fascinating trip to Tierra de Fuego’s oldest ranch. Then walk among Magellanic penguins for an unforgettable wildlife encounter
