Overview

Fly over the infamous Drake Passage, landing in Antarctica fresh and ready for exploration. While Scenic Eclipse’s customised design creates a smooth journey, this voyage gives guests the opportunity to only test these waters once. Experience the Antarctic Peninsula and its maze of protected channels with our dedicated Discovery Team. Glide in a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, experiencing the peacefulness of the frozen continent. Watch as penguins and seals dive through the glassy seas. Take the time to feel the fresh, crisp air on your face and listen to the snow crunch under your boot.

Patagonia is a truly unique landmass surrounded by a different ocean on each of its three coasts – the Pacific, the Atlantic and the Southern Ocean – and offering some of the most spectacular vistas in the world. Soaring granite mountains, lush forests, distinctive wildlife, magnificent glaciers, cerulean lakes, and the largest ice-fields in the Southern Hemisphere after Antarctica.

In El Calafate, get up close to the glorious Perito Moreno Glacier and drink in the spectacular views. Discover the splendour of Los Glaciares National Park before venturing into the dramatically beautiful Torres del Paine National Park with its soaring peaks and crystal clear lakes.

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. Settle into your handsomely appointed suite and acquaint yourself with the luxurious facilities of your Discovery Yacht. Toast the start of your voyage at the welcome cocktail reception hosted by the Captain who will introduce your expert Discovery Leaders and their team. Set sail and cruise through the Beagle Channel and admire the dramatic views of the Andean mountains of Tierra del Fuego from the comfort of your private verandah.  (B/D)

Feel the fresh, crisp air on your face and hear the snow crunch under your boot when you first step foot on land. Each new encounter will fill you will awe. Witness wildlife in their natural habitat, with no fear of humans. Antarctica is truly land of peace.   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. There may be the chance to visit a working scientific base and discuss life in these harsh conditions with the staff. Enjoy the chance to visit areas alive with wildlife such as penguins, seals, and whales. You can also explore the remnants of a derelict whaling station and a vacant British base or climb to the rim of a volcanic crater. If conditions are favourable, there may be the opportunity to cross the Antarctic Circle at latitude 66°33’ South.   Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, a host of choices are open and dependent on the ice and weather conditions. Your 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: Partake in daily Scenic Discovery excursions. Cruise on the Zodiacs around ice formations, step onto islands to view vast penguin rookeries and seals. Kayak and stand-up paddle board around icebergs and hear the ice cracking and whales feeding below. (B/L/D)
