Setting sail from Ushuaia
Ushuaia is sometimes described as 'the city at the end of the world', though its rugged beauty is far from apocalyptic. Perched on the ragged southern edge of Argentina, where the snow-capped Andes fall away into the churning sea, the city has a frontier town feel to it, and serves as the base for expeditions into the icy waters of Antarctica. There are also plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer here, including hiking, skiing and fishing, and the Tierra del Fuego National Park is home to spectacular scenery and wildlife including penguins, guanacos, sea lions and condors.
You can finish off your cold weather shopping here, they have all the best stuff.
31 December - 1 January
Antarctica: South Shetland Islands
Icy and remote, the South Shetland Islands are situated about 100 miles north of the Antarctic peninsula. The archipelago is home to a scattering of research stations, along with thousands of penguins, seals and sea lions, and you can still see the remains of Ernest Shackleton’s ship the ‘Endurance’ on the south west shore of Elephant Island.
Arriving in Ushuaia
What can we say? You can’t miss anything in the town, it’s so small!

What we love
Formally the Sea Adventurer and built in Yugoslavia in 1976, the Ocean Adventurer underwent multi-million-dollar renovation in June 2017 when it was officially renamed. Accommodation is basic yet comfortable, with a TV and DVD player and private facilities in every cabin. The spacious forward facing lounge and bar, and window-lined dining room offer relaxing public spaces, whilst the fleet of zodiacs provides plenty of opportunity to explore ashore. For those feeling even more adventurous, hiking and snowshoeing are available on selected voyages, as is kayaking and even camping ashore, although space is limited for both of these activities and they carry an additional charge.
|Style||Relaxed and comfortable. Enjoy travelling with likeminded fellow guests.|
