South Georgia & Antarctic Peninsula from Ushuaia

South Georgia & Antarctic Peninsula from Ushuaia

Antarctica is considered by many to be the final frontier. Home to an equal number of stories of glory and tragedy, you can experience this incredible spot for yourself and find out what drew so many to explore this rugged and unforgiving land. Watch penguins at play, spot minke whales in the icy waters as you navigate south from Buenos Aires, keeping an eye out for other animals, including leopard seals, blue whales, orcas, birds and fur seals. Spend some time learning about South Georgia as you go ashore to discover old whaling stations and linger a while at Sir Ernest Shackleton’s remote grave and the nearby whaling station.
