It's been 6 years since our last Antarctica trip and we've had quite a few people ask about taking a trip to visit the 7th continent so here it is.

We will be going with Quark Expeditions, a company that we went with last time that everyone raved about. They are the best in the business for this tour. We will be on their Ocean Diamond ship which has a capacity of just 189 guests. Our price reflects a 15% group discount saving you over $1,600 plus we will match you up with a roommate as always.

Here is more information on our ship and itinerary:             

Day 1 — Ushuaia, Argentina

This quaint city at the southernmost tip of South America is your gateway to Antarctica.

Day 2 — Embarkation Day

You will embark in the afternoon, with a journey through the picturesque Beagle Channel.

Days 3 to 4 — Crossing the Drake Passage

Legendary for its high winds and rolling seas, you may get lucky and have surprisingly calm seas. Spend your time in the lounge or chatting with your fellow travelers.

Days 5 to 8 — Antarctic Peninsula

Icebergs are the first attractions that welcome you to Antarctica. Massive floating bergs become more common as you get closer to land and you catch your first glimpse of the Peninsula, with its grand snow-covered mountains.

Day 9 and 10— Crossing the Drake Passage
As the ship turns north, you’ll say goodbye to the penguins, as well as many of your shipmates. Spent the night in Punta Arenas hotel.


Day 11 — Disembarkation is Ushuaia

Depart for home.
