DESCRIPTION

Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

This Antarctica travel journey is the classic itinerary to the beautiful Antarctic Peninsula. It delivers everything you want: the huge tabular icebergs, hillsides covered with gentoo, Adelie or chinstrap penguins, whales and abundant marine life, a passage through the famed Lemaire Channel between towering blue bergs, and more. On our Antarctica cruises, the sights, sounds and emotions will stay in your mind forever.

Experience the Lindblad legacy of exploration on your Antarctica cruise. A fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks further your ability to examine this remote wilderness. Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, eight veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, an undersea specialist, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, a video chronicler, and a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for Antarctica is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.

ITINERARY

Day 1: U.S./Fly To Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

Depart U.S. this evening on an overnight flight to Buenos Aires. (We've found that Miami is a convenient gateway for most, but other air alternatives are available.)

Day 2: Buenos Aires/Overnight Hotel
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

We arrive this morning in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, set on the Rio de la Plata, and check in to the fine Caesar Park Hotel (MGallery). In the afternoon, we have a guided overview of the city, seeing its Beaux Arts palaces, grand boulevards, and the famous balcony forever associated with Eva Peron. (L)

Day 3: Santiago/Ushuaia, Argentina/Embark Ship
Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

The morning's LAN charter flight offers some rare views as we fly over the vividly rugged terrain of Patagonia before landing in Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. We'll have lunch during a catamaran cruise of the scenic Beagle Channel before embarking National Geographic Explorer. (B,L,D)

Day 4: At Sea
Drake Passage, Antarctica
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

We awake this morning well into our journey across the Drake Passage. Lying between Cape Horn and the Antarctic Peninsula, the Drake holds a unique place in maritime lore. Sometimes misty and gray, other times calm and clear, crossing the legendary Drake Passage is unforgettable - a milestone in any adventurer's personal travel history. (B,L,D)

Days 5-10: Antarctica
Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

With nearly 24 hours of daylight, we make the most of our six days, keeping a flexible schedule to take advantage of the unexpected — perhaps watching a 40-ton whale surface off the bow. We are out daily. One day, you may take a Zodiac foray amid towering bergs under a bright sun, walk along the shoreline amid a huge penguin colony, hike to a summit for a breathtaking view, or kayak along a cliff-side rookery in search of blue-eyed shags. And the next, you’ll have the thrill of watching the ship crunch through the pack ice, or step ashore to the cries of thousands of gentoo penguins. You’ll learn from our experts how to identify penguins and get photo tips from a National Geographic photographer while watching those same penguins. Back aboard, our Undersea Specialist may present video from that day’s dive — rare images taken up to 1,000 feet below the surface using our ROV. Our expert staff will craft an expedition where you will learn more, see more and experience more. (B,L,D)

Days 11-12: At Sea
South Atlantic Ocean, Subantarctic, Antarctica
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

As we sail back to Ushuaia, an albatross or two may join the avian escort of seabirds that cross our bow, and our spotters will keep an eye out for marine life. There’ll be plenty of time to enjoy a wellness treatment, log some time in the gym, or catch up on the book you haven’t had a minute to read. Talks from our staff will reflect on all you have seen and learned. (B,L,D)

Day 13: Ushuaia/Disembark/Buenos Aires/Flight Home
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

After breakfast, we disembark in Ushuaia with some time to explore before proceeding to the airport for our LAN charter flight to Buenos Aires, and an overnight flight to Miami. (B,L)

On Day 14 arrive back in the U.S. and your final destination home.
