Ushuaia

Spend an enjoyable day roaming the world’s southernmost town, with its famed leather markets and Patagonian lamb cuisine. If you’d like to explore further afield, the Tierra Fuego National Park nearby is little short of spectacular, and promises a memorable ride on the Train at the End of the World.

Embarkation

This afternoon you’ll board the Hebridean Sky, getting to know the Polar Latitudes Expedition Team and the ship’s officers at the Captain’s welcome dinner. After dining, relish views of penguin and sea lion colonies with a dramatic mountainous backdrop, as the crew casts off for an early evening sail down the Beagle Channel.

Drake Passage

Sailing south the ship is often followed by hungry albatross, prions and petrels, while various species of whale and dolphin can be observed in the waves. Our Expedition Team will be out and about on deck between hosting a series of illuminating presentations on Antarctica's unique geology, history and wildlife in the comfortable lounge. By the evening of Day 4, the South Shetland islands and the Antarctic Peninsula should be on the horizon. 

Antarctica

A flexible itinerary begins, dependent on weather and ice conditions. Penguin rookeries, seal wallows and bird colonies dot the beautiful peninsula, along with sites of historic and geological interest. You might see humpback whale surfacing in Wilhelmina Bay. There’s the scenic charms of Neko Harbour the fascinating glimpse of researchers at work in a scientific station such as Poland’s Arctowski. Wildlife encounters are commonplace in these parts, so you may catch sight of elephant seal dozing on the rocks, and even the occasional orca. 

Drake Passage

Cruising back to Ushuaia through Drake Passage, an important trade route until the early 20th-century, you can continue to enjoy involving discussions from leading experts aboard ship. There will of course still be plenty of opportunities for you to join your fellow travellers watching wildlife from the deck, which often prompts reflection on the fragile beauty of Antarctica and its uncertain future. The ship should arrive in Ushuaia in the early hours of Day 12.

Ushuaia disembarkation

This morning it’s time to bid farewell to the Hebridean Sky and the crew,. Transfer to the airport for a connecting flight back to Buenos Aires, or remain in Ushuaia to continue your adventures for a while longer.
