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!
Falkland Islands: Grave Cove
Falkland Islands: New Island
Arriving on New Island's sandy beach, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were off the coast of Scotland. Yet a short walk over the crest of a hill reveals a colony of rockhopper penguins and black-browed albatross perched on a cliff. A small hut, originally built by stranded sailors, is now a museum dedicated to the history of the island.
Falkland Islands: Saunders Island, Steeple Jason
United Kingdom: Stromness
Stromness is the second biggest town in the Orkney Islands, an atmospheric and friendly place with a proud seafaring heritage. Enjoy local music in a cosy pub, explore independent shops and galleries or head out to one of the nearby prehistoric sites, such as the intriguing Ring of Brodgar.
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: South Georgia
Remote and virtually uninhabited, the island of South Georgia is a beautiful and fascinating place. The landscape of jagged, snowy peaks and dramatic fjords is home to an abundance of penguins and seals, as well as ghostly abandoned whaling stations and the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton.
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: Salisbury Plain
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: Grytviken (South Georgia)
Grytviken is a former whaling station and home of the fascinating South Georgia Museum. The great Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton is buried here, and this was also where Argentinian soldiers disguised as scrap metal merchants seized control of South Georgia during the opening stages of the Falklands War.
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: St Andrews Bay, Cooper Bay, Gold Harbour
Tristan da Cunha: Tristan da Cunha
There is remote, and then there is Tristan da Cunha. This little volcanic rock in the South Atlantic supports a population of less than 300 people, and is an astonishing 1,200 miles from St Helena, the nearest inhabited island. There is no airport, so arriving by ship really is the only way to get here.
Tristan da Cunha: Nightingale Island, Gough Island
Arriving in Cape Town
This magical multicultural city is the perfect jumping off point to explore Southern Africa, but do make sure you linger a few days to enjoy the buzz of a city where Africa meets a European-style cosmopolitan atmosphere, creating a vibrant melting pot of cultures and religions. With flat-topped Table Mountain soaring above the city, beautiful natural landscapes, and gardens within the city, you never feel far from nature here. Enjoy the waterfront, museums and elegant architecture, then take the time to venture further afield - there is so much within easy reach.
Combine time in Cape Town with trips outside the city. We will help you plan ahead to make the most of your visit, so our tip is simply to call us to make the most of it.

What we love
The muted natural tones that make up the modern and minimalist interior of these excellent small ships are enhanced by playful splashes of colour which creates some of the most stylish ships we've seen. The accommodation is flexible; staterooms can be combined to create expansive suites and the restaurants live up to the outstanding gastronomic reputation that you'd expect from a French flag cruise line.

Tours from Ushuaia
What you choose to do on tour will need to supplement whatever cruise you are taking. So if you are heading to Antarctica, whilst here you will want to go to the Tierra del Fuego National Park.
