An Expedition to Remember

Desperate to exit the city to a dream-like scape that is once-in-a-lifetime experience? Tap the explorer in you as you make your way to Antarctica. This is a journey like none other, far from the madding crowds as you travel to a scenic wonder that is truly the last tract of uninhabited land on earth. February is the when the chicks are fledging and learning to swim in the shallows. This month is also known for whale spotting as all migrating pods have now made it down to Antarctica's rich waters. Embark on not just any ship but a well equipped polar vessel that ensures you can reach extreme corners of the Antarctica Continent where the bigger ship struggles to.  “What an adventure it was! Steeped in the legacy of the Polar exploration pioneers and rich in the wildness of a place far removed from the ravages of humans. It’s the last truly wild and, mostly, pristine continent, untouched by mankind and once I have let it into my heart, it will undoubtedly summon me back again and again.” - Sumitra Senapaty (founder of WOW Club).

    Arrive in Buenos Aires

    Before you escape to the rugged, raw beauty of the Antarctic, enjoy the sin of gluttony and mirth in one of Argentina’s finest cities- Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is picture perfect; its colorful streets and homes look like an artist dipped his brush dipped into bright hues and painted a brilliant story. The architecture draws on French influences and colonial homes dot pretty streets that light up in a mad, carnival-esque fashion once the sun dips. Transfer from the international airport to the hotel .

    Kenton Palace Hotel or similar
  • Day 2

    In and Around Buenos Aires

    The day is dedicated to Buenos Aires City Tour- visit La Recoleta Cemetery, Palermo, Teatro Colon, Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, San Telmo and La Boca. If you think of cemeteries as depressingly dark, underground affairs, Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cemetery will turn that on its head – not least because most of the graves are built above ground. Get a feel of South America unplugged as you walk through La Boca, with its bright-as-bulbs colored homes, and gorgeous open bars. Enjoy the Tango show followed by dinner. Overnight stay in Buenos Aires

    Kenton Palace Hotel or similar
  • Day 3

    Antarctica- Here We Come!

    Early morning travel from the hotel in Buenos Aires to the domestic airport from where you fly to Ushuaia to begin the expedition (Flight Not Included). Later the same day, get ready to board your Expedition, the USHUAIA. Your voyage begins where the world drops off: Ushuaia, Argentina, reputed to be the southernmost city on the planet. Starting in the afternoon with immense excitement, you embark from this small resort town on Tierra del Fuego – nicknamed “The End of the World”– and sail the scenic, mountain-fringed Beagle Channel for the rest of the evening.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 4

    Path of the Polar Explorers

    Named after the renowned explorer, Sir Francis Drake, who sailed these waters in 1578, the Drake Passage also marks the Antarctic Convergence, a biological barrier where cold polar water sinks beneath the warmer northern waters. The USHUAIA's open bridge policy allows you to join our officers on the bridge and learn about navigation, watch for whales, and enjoy the view. This first view in itself will leave you mesmerized, LITERALLY!

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 5

    Path of the Polar Explorers

    The first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains indicate that we have reached the South Shetland Islands, a group of twenty islands and islets. With favorable conditions in the Drake Passage our lecturers and naturalists will accompany you ashore as you experience your first encounter with the penguins and seals.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 6

    Enter the Antarctic

    The South Shetland Islands are a haven for wildlife. Vast penguin rookeries, beaches ruled by Antarctic fur seals and Southern elephant seals make every day spent in this amazing island group unforgettable. Sailing through the narrow passage into the flooded caldera of Deception Island is breathtaking. 

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 7

    About The Ship- The Ushuaia

    The expedition ship USHUAIA is a delight in itself. Originally built for the United States agency NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration), the ice-strengthened polar vessel USHUAIA is very well appointed and provides ample deck space and an open bridge policy. While the ship is small enough to maneuver through the icy waters, sometimes you just want to get up close and personal with some of the sights. This is taken care by our special inflatable, highly buoyant boat ZODIAC BOATS. It’s special design gives it a low centre of gravity, making it very stable, and easy to navigate in a range of different conditions. These lightweight boats are well suited to Antarctica, and allow us to make spontaneous landings or excursions should our crew spot an incredible ice formation or an unexpected wildlife sighting.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 8

    At the White Continent

    King George Island, the largest of the South Shetland Islands, features colonies of nesting Adélie and Chinstrap Penguins, Kelp Gulls, Blue-eyed Cormorants, Antarctic Terns and Southern Giant Petrels and is home to scientific bases of many different countries.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 9

    At the White Continent

    The Antarctic Peninsula’s remarkable history will provide you with a type of excitement often only associated with the early explorers. You will be experiencing a sight which is even difficult to imagine. Apart from penguins and seabirds you are very likely to see Weddell, crabeater and leopard seals as well as Minke, killer (orca) and humpback whales at close range.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 10

    At the White Continent

    Further exploration may take you to the Melchior Island group, Cuverville Island, Portal Point, Neko Harbour, Pléneau Island and if ice conditions permit, to Petermann Island for a visit to the southernmost colony of Gentoo Penguins.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 11

    Familiar Seas, Familiar Friend

    Your return voyage is far from lonely. While crossing the Drake, you’re again greeted by the vast array of seabirds remembered from the passage south. But they seem a little more familiar to you now, and you to them.

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 12

    Familiar Seas, Familiar Friend

    Join the lecturers and naturalists on deck as we search for seabirds and whales and enjoy some final lectures. It will be an adventure of a LIFETIME & an achievement to look back to. You must have by now earned some sights to behold forever!

    The USHUAIA Ship
  • Day 13

    There and Back Again

    We arrive at the port of Ushuaia early in the morning and disembark the USHUAIA after breakfast. From here, we are escorted to Old Prison Museum in Ushuaia followed by an orientation Tour of Ushuaia. Transfer to the Ushuaia Airport to board the flight back home. Still gaga over Argentina? You can plan to explore Argentina with WOW by opting for the extension.

  • I never imagined I was one day going to embark on an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula! But it’s like a dream coming true. I had to work hard to achieve this feat. I had to experience and face the perilous Drake Passage, the wildest sea in the world! Just cannot forget sailing through the stormy waters!

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
