Start your Antarctica adventure in Ushuaia, taking a day to explore the city or hiking to Marshall Glacier. Embark your boat in the afternoon and start your voyage with a lecture from your expedition leader, before settling in for the night. The next two days will see you cross Drake Passage, an 800km stretch of water known for its abundance of seabirds, whales and iceberg sightings, before landing on the White Continent at the South Shetland Islands, Bransfield Strait and the Antarctic Peninsula itself. Expect to make two landings each day (dependent on weather), where you’ll see penguins, seals, whales and some of the most remote and inspiring scenery in the world.
