When Do You Want To Go?

You will arrive in Buenos Aires the night before the cruise where you can explore this fascinating cosmopolitan city before staying overnight in your included pre-cruise hotel. You will then fly South to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world and board your expedition ship the MS Midnatsol and sail across the Drake Passage. As you approach the Antarctic convergence you will begin to witness the incredible spectacle of Antarctica's wildlife.

On arriving in Antarctica you will enjoy excursions out into the Antarctic continent exploring on foot and by Zodiac boat. Having close encounters with penguins and keeping an eye out for whales petrels and albatrosses. 

The endless white horizon's of Antarctica will invigorate your senses. Subject to the weather conditions you will land on the frozen continent, cruise between giant icebergs and spot whales and from the deck! Among the locations, you may get to visit on the itinerary are Half Moon Island, Cuverville Island and Neko Harbour. After four days of exploring, you will wave finally leave the frozen continents as you set sail for the Falkland Islands. Where you will experience a slice of Britain in the South Atlantic: red buses, phone boxes, pubs, it's a home from home and the locals will be sure to make you feel welcome. The Island is home to more penguins than people and the pristine wilderness is an amazing chance to relax in stunning nature. The islands have a rich history and were an important stopping off point for ships sailing around Cape Horn. There are a number of optional excursions available that will let you get the most out of your time here including history tours, bird watching tours, nature walks and even a scenic plane tour where you can discover the Falklands by air in a classic island-hopping aircraft. You will then embark the ship for a final time as you sail North to Montevideo, Uruguay’s stunning capital.
