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.
What can we say? You can’t miss anything in the town, it’s so small!
Antarctica is the world’s last great wilderness, an alien landscape of snow-covered mountains, steaming pools and jagged icebergs. Visitors will never forget the extraordinary wildlife they encounter here: the seething mass of penguins, the sealions and the fur seals, all making the most of the all-too-short summer months.
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.
