At 55 degrees latitude south, Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ah) is closer to the South Pole than to Argentina's northern border with Bolivia. It is the capital and tourism base for Tierra del Fuego, the island at the southernmost tip of Argentina.Although its stark physical beauty is striking, Tierra del Fuego's historical allure is based more on its mythical past than on rugged reality. The island was inhabited for 6,000 years by Yámana, Haush, Selk'nam, and Alakaluf Indians.

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Located slightly northwest of West Falkland, West Point Island is used for sheep farming and nature observations. Peale’s dolphins and the distinctive black and white markings of the Commerson’s dolphin can usually be seen in the waters around West Point Island. Rolling moorland and steep cliffs make for great photographic opportunities, but the main attraction is the Devil’s Nose, a cliffside colony of Black-browed Albatrosses nesting side-by-side with feisty Rockhopper Penguins. Magellanic Penguins and Magellanic Cormorants can also be found on the island.
Saunders Island is the fourth-largest of the Falkland Islands in the western portion of the archipelago. The island’s topography is unusual, being made up of three peninsulas linked by narrow necks, and three big upland areas. Today the island is run as a sheep farm, but has historical importance as the location of the first British settlement in the Falklands. Saunders’ wildlife is also impressively varied.
Tiny Stanley, capital of the Falklands, seems in many ways like a British village fallen out of the sky. Many homes are painted in bright colours, adding visual appeal to this distant outpost. Not far offshore, the wreck of the Lady Elizabeth, is one of the many vessels remaining as a silent testimonial to the region's frequent harsh weather conditions. The islands, also known by their Spanish name of Islas Malvinas, are home to arguably more tuxedo-clad inhabitants of the penguin variety than human residents.

So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
South Georgia is a breathtaking destination of towering snow-covered mountains, mighty glaciers, and low-lying grasslands that attract an astounding concentration of wildlife. It is possible to find Southern fur seals, Southern elephant seals and a variety of albatross species including Black-browed, Light-mantled Sooty, Grey-headed and the spectacular Wandering Albatross, plus thousands of King and Macaroni Penguins. South Georgia is also linked to the early Antarctic explorers.

Awesome glaciers flecked with pink algae can be seen approaching Elephant Island — so named either for its elephant-like appearance or for sightings of elephant seals here. Elephant Island is home to several Chinstrap Penguin rookeries, as well as 2,000-year-old moss colonies. Weddell seals and Macaroni Penguins can also be spotted. In 1916, when Ernest Shackleton’s ship Endurance was crushed in pack ice in the Weddell Sea, the crew was stranded here for more than 4 months finding shelter under two upturned lifeboats on the spit of land Shackleton’s men named ‘Point Wild’.
The Antarctic Sound is a stretch of water named after the first ship to have passed through this body of water from the Bransfield Strait to the Weddell Sea in 1902. The Antarctic eventually sank and crew and scientists had to spend quite some time in this area before they could be rescued. Sites that have to do with this story - like Hope Bay or Paulet Island - are sometimes visited. At Paulet, Hope Bay and Brown Bluff Adelie and Gentoo Penguins breed, as do Kelp Gulls and Cape Petrels, Snow Petrels and Skuas.
Remote and otherworldly, Antarctica is irresistible for its spectacular iceberg sculptures and calving glaciers, and for the possibility of up-close encounters with marine mammals and the iconic penguins. The Antarctic Peninsula – the main peninsula closest to South America – has a human history of almost 200 years, with explorers, sealers, whalers, and scientists who have come to work, and eventually intrepid visitors coming to enjoy this pristine and remote wilderness.
Some 770 kilometers (478 miles) south of Cape Horn, the South Shetland Islands are usually the first land seen in Antarctica. Separated from the Antarctic Peninsula by the Bransfield Strait, nine major islands make up the group. The region was the first to be exploited by sealers in the early 19th century, and because of its proximity to South America, it still is the most visited by scientists and tourists. Chinstrap, Adelie, Gentoo and Macaroni Penguins all breed here.
The Drake Passage has a notorious reputation for its turbulent seas due to the westerly winds and the funneling effect of the passage. The Antarctic Convergence, a natural boundary where cold polar water flows northward and warmer equatorial water moves southward, is within the Drake Passage. When these two currents meet, nutrients are pushed to the surface, often attracting a multitude of seabirds and whales. Black-browed Albatross, Sooty Shearwaters and White-chinned Petrels glide in the air currents alongside and in the wake of the ship.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Join us for a journey to the last untouched continent. First we will visit several of the Falkland Islands, looking for Black-browed Albatross, Rockhopper Penguins and Imperial Cormorants. Then we continue to breathtaking South Georgia. Huge King Penguin colonies, its whaling history and Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition with the Endurance make South Georgia special. Antarctica will show spectacular icebergs and calving glaciers and the possibility of up-close encounters with penguins ashore, seals sunbathing on slow-moving ice floes and humpback or Minke whales surfacing close to the ship. Weather depending, we will take daily Zodiac departures in South Georgia and Antarctica and cruise amidst colorful icebergs, or step ashore to visit a variety of penguin rookeries on excursions led by our team of natural history experts. Keep your eye peeled for the lovely black and white Commerson’s dolphins in the Falklands. Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife and history of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

West Point Island, Falkland Islands
Look for Commerson’s and Peale’s dolphins while approaching the settlement of West Point Island, where just one family lives. Hike to a Black-browed Albatross colony next to Rockhopper Penguins and Imperial Cormorants. Visit the home of the owners for some tea and home-baked cakes and cookies.

Stanley, Falkland Islands
Explore Stanley, the Falkland Islands’ capital. See the whalebone arch in front of the Anglican Cathedral, or walk the streets and have a beer at one of the charming local pubs. The Historic Dockside Museum is also worth a visit, covering the natural and cultural history of the region.

South Georgia
In South Georgia we will land at old whaling stations, depending on landing conditions hope to visit a huge King Penguin colony, see the Museum at Grytviken, and do Zodiac cruises looking for wildlife.

Elephant Island, Antarctica
If conditions cooperate, we might take a Zodiac cruise to see where Sir Ernest Shackleton’s men were stranded for more than four months. A bust here commemorates the Chilean captain who finally helped Shackleton rescue the men in mid-winter.

Antarctic Sound, Antarctica
We will travel to see tabular icebergs in the Antarctic Sound. The Sound is named after the first ship to navigate through it and has massive continental icebergs, which rise out of the water like giant white-blue blocks. Depending on ice conditions, Zodiac cruises and a landing might be possible.

Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica
We will explore the Antarctic Peninsula from the Silver Explorer, on Zodiac cruises and via landings to see seals and penguin colonies. These activities will be expertly selected by your Captain and Expedition Leader while working with the weather and ice conditions. This promontory of land is the furthest-north extension of the Antarctic mainland.

South Shetland Islands, Antarctica
Several landing sites and remains of whaling stations can be found in the South Shetland Islands. This grouping of islands is 75 miles north of the Antarctic Peninsula and holds many research stations run by Argentina, the US, Chile, Spain and other countries. Sites to be seen will be selected based on weather and ice conditions.

Cultural Highlights:
• Meet the residents of West Point Island and see the capital of the Falkland Islands at Stanley Port. Learn about the cultural and natural history of the region at the Historic Dockside Museum.

Wildlife Watch List:

• Penguins (Magellanic, Rockhopper, King, Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie Penguins)
• Seals (Antarctic fur seals, southern elephant seals, Weddell seals, crabeater seals and leopard seals)
• Whales (humpback whales, Minke whales, sei whales, fin whales, pilot whales, orcas, Peale’s and Commerson’s dolphins)
• Birds of note: Blue-eyed Shag, Upland Goose, Grass Wren, Long-tailed Meadowlark, Striated Caracara, Black-browed Albatross, Wandering Albatross, Southern Giant Petrel, Cape Petrel, Wilson’s Storm Petrel, Snowy Sheathbill
