Choose your activity This trip offers a unique opportunity to experience a variety of adventure activities.

There are several places we’ve discovered over the years which are ideal for this activity.

For those enrolled in our sea kayaking program, there will be an optional opportunity to participate in an overnight sea kayak camping excursion led by our kayak guides.

There are also softer options available and our snow shoeing and hiking excursions which will depend on the landing sites we visit. Maybe you’ll want to stroll the beach checking out the penguins as they come and go, or stretch the legs on a longer hike for several hours. Either way, the choice is yours. Just let us know.

For others wanting to camp, we’ll endeavour to spend a night on the ice. Ideal weather and just the right campsite make this a memorable experience. Those with some experience of mountaineering can join our expert guides and climb up into the beautiful and remote wilderness of Antarctica to enjoy an amazing ski touring option. Day 11-12 As we leave the peninsula, we chart a course for Cape Horn and hope to round this renowned land mass before arriving back in Ushuaia. You can expect to see countless sea birds here - the wanderers, petrels and black browed albatross here and we often see pods of killer whales near ‘the Horn’. It’s a dramatic and appropriate place to reflect on your experiences in Antarctica - which by now, you’ll agree, is the most magical place on earth. Tonight, as we enter the Beagle Channel, we have a special dinner onboard, perhaps a glass of wine and reflect on our experience in Antarctica. Day 13 In the early morning we reach Ushuaia. It is time to say farewell to your crew and other guests. After saying goodbye, you are transported to Ushuaia’s airport, or to your chosen hotel in town.

For keen photographers interested in wildlife or landscapes, you can join our professional photographer for an extended shore excursion aimed at capturing the jaw dropping beauty of Antarctica through the lens.
