Set sail for the cruise of a lifetime, exploring the hidden beauties of the seventh continent, Antarctica. Conquer the Drake Passage, get up close and personal with penguins and whales, from your base on the luxury vessel Ultramarine. Then you head back to Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Colonia for a more urban type of exploring.
Antarctica is the last great wilderness in the world and on this 11-day cruise, you will discover much of its rugged beauty. Ultramarine is a purpose-built luxury Antarctic cruiser, complete with two twin-engine helicopters and a fleet of Zodiacs to get you right in amongst the polar action. You will head down the famous Drake passage, enjoying your time in the observation lounge, spa, sauna or fitness room onboard, or boosting your knowledge with the fascinating onboard lectures.
When you arrive at the South Shetland Islands and the White Continent itself, you will spend your days investigating different bays and peninsulas by land, air and sea, keeping your eyes open for the huge array of penguins, seals, whales and birds that make the Antarctic their home.
Back on dry land, you will then get a chance to explore one of the most chilled and happy countries in the world, Uruguay. With visits to the small, wonderful capital Montevideo and the charming architecture of coastal Colonia, we follow this by crossing the water to one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world, Buenos Aires. Here, an in-depth cultural tour of the city will cap off an incredible, life-changing couple of weeks.
