Icy fjords, jagged mountains and immense glaciers. No, this isn't an intro to a motivational video at work. This is your trip of a lifetime - a full-bore Antarctic expedition cruise from Adventure-Life. Join a small group in Ushuaia, Argentina (the southern most city in the world) and climb aboard a rugged, comfortable vessel for an exploration of the Antarctic shoreline. Wildlife and wonder await at the bottom of the world.
With shared accommodations and all meals taken care of, embark on a journey of icy discovery without a care in the world. While on the ship, a program of lectures by noted naturalists will educate you and the fellow travelers on the idiosyncrasies and characteristics of the region and the wildlife that calls it home. With lessons on flora and fauna in hand, head out for land and water activities within the expansive Antarctic landscape. At the helm of a kayak, in the exploratory confines of a zodiac or along icy trails, bear witness to rare wildlife, intense natural beauty and
unique cultures that have survived in one of the most extreme (and striking) environments on Earth.
The journey charts a winding course, crossing the Drake Passage to the South Shetland Islands, sailing past humpback whales and a plethora of birds that will amaze even amateur aviary fans. These specialized boats, the Ortelius for the 10 day journey, the Plancius for the 11 day, offer an enormous, secure and comfortable headquarters as you curl around the Antarctica Peninsula. With spacious open deck spaces for whale watching, cozy cabins and an onboard restaurant and bar, you'll find your Arctic home to be a warm refuge from the glorious, chilly outdoor landscape.
A thoughtful itinerary from a highly respected adventure company - this unique Antarctica cruise offers every dreamer, wanderer and at-heart explorer a chance to see the very ends of the Earth.
