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.

Our tip

You can finish off your cold weather shopping here, they have all the best stuff.

Quark Expeditions Ocean Adventurer

The Ocean Adventurer is a veteran of polar expeditions, operating in the Arctic and Antarctica.

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.
