1 Buenos Aires - Ushuaia
Your journey into wonder begins as you fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, known as the southernmost city in the world, where the crew will warmly greet you as you board Scenic Eclipse.

Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, a host of choices are now open and, depending on the ice and weather conditions, the Antarctic Peninsula is yours to explore. Our experienced Discovery Team Leaders, who have made countless journeys to Antarctica, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day, making the most of 18–20 hours of daylight. Discovery: You will partake in daily Scenic Discovery excursions. Cruise on the Zodiacs around ice formations, step onto islands to view vast penguin rookeries and seals. Kayak around icebergs, hear the ice cracking and feeding whales blow. Your expert Captain and crew will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways which may include traversing the stunning 11-kilometre-long Lemaire Channel where steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage just 700 metres wide at its narrowest point. Sail close to blue-tinged icebergs and there may be the chance to visit a working scientific base and discuss life in these harsh conditions with the staff. In late February and March, if conditions are favourable, there may be the opportunity to cross the Antarctic Circle at latitude 66°33’ South. (B/L/D)
