Awe-Inspiring Antarctica

Date: Jan 2-14, 2020
Starting Price: $8,599
Trip Length: 11 nights
Trip: Buenos Aires to Buenos Aires
Cruise line: Albatros Expeditions | Ocean Atlantic

Explore the far reaches of the earth aboard Albatros Expeditions’ newly renovated Ocean Atlantic. Spend two days immersed in Argentinian culture with an included two-night Pre-Cruise Program. Travel to Buenos Aires, known for its thriving arts culture, world-class eateries, and nearly 300 theaters. Tour the elegant turn-of-the century districts that earned this city the nickname “the Paris of South America.” Next, fly to Ushuaia, the city at the end of the world; experience stunning views of snow-capped mountains on the far reaches of the Beagle Channel, your gateway to Antarctica. The next day, begin your journey south through the channel. Spend two days at sea aboard the Ocean Atlantic; cross the famed Drake Passage, where humpback whales, petrels, and albatross are commonly seen. Over the next two days, discover the wildlife of the South Shetland Islands, a place known for its chinstrap and gentoo penguins, seals, and unspoiled mountainous landscape. Then, explore as far south as possible on the Antarctic Peninsula where lively penguins, inquisitive seals, and marine mammals flock around you. Before heading back to Ushuaia, pass back through the Drake Passage to cruise past Cape Horn, a legendary maritime landmark at the southern tip of South America.
