destination like no other. This voyage to the virtually uninhabited
seventh continent promises to be an unforgettable adventure.

capital, where you'll have the warm spring evening to explore the
'Paris of South America'. Then it's on to Ushuaia, in Argentina's
southernmost region, Tierra Del Fuego, where you'll realise why the
city is nicknamed 'the End of the World', to embark your
state-of-the-art custom-built expedition ship MS Fridtjof
You'll then leave the southern tip of the Americas and glide
through the icy waters of Drake Passage to the Arctic Peninsula and
gaze out at seas that are home to whales, pods of orcas and
Looking back you'll see 'the End of the World' disappear over
the horizon as you approach skyscraper-sized icebergs rising up out
of the waters before you. The next five days will be spent in
Antarctica, which never fails to inspire awe and wonder, with white
horizons above oceans full of icebergs and whales.
Your Expedition Team will lead ice-cruising and landings at
every opportunity to go ashore and explore the impressive Antarctic
scenery. From the deck, there are great chances to spot whales and
huge colonies of penguins.
