Journey south to mesmerising Antarctica on this 16-day expedition aboard the luxurious Scenic Eclipse.
Your experience in South America begins when you arrive in Buenos Aires, where you will be transferred to a luxury hotel for a one-night stay. Following breakfast the following morning, you will transfer to the airport to catch an internal flight to Ushuaia where you will embark. Once you have settled into your suite accommodation, you are free to attend a welcome reception while the captain sets a course bound for Antarctica.
The next two days will spend crossing the fabled Drake Passage. As one of the newest – and fastest – expedition ships in the world, Scenic Eclipse is the perfect vessel for this crossing and the outstanding onboard facilities will provide you with plenty of ways to spend these lazy days at sea.
As the sun rises on the fifth day, you will enter the Antarctic Peninsula. This incredible part of the world has long captivated the world’s explorers and you will be lucky enough to have six full day’s of exploration ahead of you. While there is no set itinerary for this period, Scenic Eclipse’s Expedition Team will plan each days activities depending on the weather patterns and conditions. However, the team generally hope to facilitate two excursions each day, whether these are by Zodiac, on-foot or by the ship’s submarine and helicopters.
On the 12th day of your expedition you will bid farewell to Antarctica as Scenic Eclipse begins her journey north back through Drake Passage, where you will have two days to reflect on your experience. Upon arrival in Ushuaia, you will be flown to Buenos Aires for another one-night hotel stay before flying back the UK the following morning.Contact Us
