Day 1: Ushuaia to the Falkland Islands
The expedition team welcomes travellers on board of the ship, ready to sail through the Beagle Channel to the Falkland Islands.

Day 2-5: Falkland Islands & time at sea
The archipelago is home to large numbers of King penguins breeding at Volunteer Point and has more than 60 species of bird. You can land in a Zodiac and admire the scenic landscapes and remarkable wildlife like rockhopper and magellanic penguins, albatrosses and cormorants.

Day 6-9: South Georgia & time at sea
South Georgia Island is a beauty of nature. A paradise for birdlife as it is inhabited with rich and diverse wildlife. Admire the elephant seals relaxing at Royal Bay while the gigantic colonies of King penguins raise their young on the shores gathering like a huge kindergarden.

Day 10-15: South Orkney Islands, South Shetland Islands & Antarctica Peninsula
The ship navigates towards the Antarctic Peninsula, traversing world’s most remote and challenging regions. The ship will forge a path through the ice floes to the South Shetland Islands which is largely covered in ice. A pristine location to navigate on a Zodiac and get closer to the mystical steam produced from hot underground springs. However beautiful it can be, this is nothing compared to the unforgettable experience of setting foot in the Antarctic Peninsula. The endless ice makes a profound impression that will last a lifetime. Encounter the penguin colonies and observe the majestic icebergs and mighty mountain ranges along the coast.

Day 16-18: Drake Passage - Ushuaia
You will sail through the iconic Drake Passage before to arrive back in Ushuaia where the adventure will end. On the way, take this last opportunity to observe the sea from the top deck in case of whale appearance and share your experience with other travellers.
