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.

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.
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.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Tauranga (for Lake Rotorua), New Zealand

We drive inland to Lake Rotorua and Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Valley through kiwi-growing country of the aptly named Bay of Plenty. Wai-o-Tapu is a geothermal active area south of Rotorua with many hot springs, mud pools and famous Lady Knox Geyser. The area is also a Maori stronghold and there will be a welcome ceremony and a guided walk through a Maori village to introduce the Maori way of life.

White Island, New Zealand

Depending on permits and conditions we plan to use our Zodiacs to land on White Island and set off on foot across the crater floor of New Zealand’s only active volcano. The sights are surreal: the main crater with towering walls, steaming vents, and hissing fumaroles, glittering yellow sulphur crystals, bubbling mud pots and a spectacular steaming lake. Near the landing site are the remains of an old sulphur‐mining factory, abandoned because of a devastating explosion in 1914. About 70% of the volcano remains under the sea, making this massive volcanic structure the largest in New Zealand.

Napier, New Zealand

Napier is the starting point to reach the iconic Cape Kidnappers, home to the world’s largest mainland gannet colony. Hawke’s Bay’s vineyards are home to some of New Zealand’s ultra-premium wines. Some of the most sought-after wines New Zealand has to offer are produced here and the country’s oldest winemaking region is renowned for its award-winning red wines, fresh produce and artisan food producers. Since Napier claims to be the “Art Deco Capital of the World”, a visit to the art deco district to admire the world‐class collection of architecture is a must.

Ship Cove and Motuara, New Zealand

Captain Cook visited Ships Cove on many occasions during his three voyages into the Pacific, and a memorial has been set up here. A landing will permit to walk to a small waterfall or hike the first metres of the famous Queen Charlotte Track –which has its northern starting point here. Nearby Motuara, an Island Bird Sanctuary free of predators, shows Yellow-crowned Parakeets, South Island Saddlebacks, South Island Robbins, bellbirds, and sometimes even Little Blue Penguins can be seen with a little luck. For better viewing group sizes on Motuara are restricted.

Fiordland, New Zealand

We will explore Fiordland National Park, a World Heritage Site that includes among others Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The breath-taking views of Milford Sound (Piopiotahi in Māori) and the majestic carved peaks and dramatic waterfalls are awe-inspiring as one marvels at Mitre Peak’s striking figure. Using Zodiacs and the ship to explore, the Captain and Expedition Leader will work together to create the perfect schedule for the visit in Fiordland National Park and to see the resident pod of dolphins, penguins and seals.

Stewart Island and Ulva Island, New Zealand To gain an insight into New Zealand’s southernmost community one can explore Oban and the surrounding bays at one’s own pace. Neighbouring Ulva Island is a world renowned open bird sanctuary looked after by the Department of Conservation. Small groups of not more than 12 guests will be led by professional local guides to ensure a maximum experience of natural history. As Ulva has no invasive species, the walk through the natural forest will be a wonderful opportunity to see the endemic plants and birdlife.

Cultural Highlights:
• Learn about the Maori and Aotearoa • Explore the Art Deco capital of the world

Wildlife Watch List:
• Fiordland and Little Blue Penguins • Humpback whales, Minke whales, sei whales, fin whales, pilot whales • Birds of note: Albatross, mollymawks, prions, petrels, Australasian Gannets, Yellow-crowned Parakeets, Kakariki (Red-crowned Parakeets), South Island Saddlebacks, South Island Robbins, Tui, Kaka, tomtits, Grey Warblers, New Zealand Wood Pigeons, bellbirds
