Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Ushuaia

Day 3 to 4Across the Drake Passage

Continuously travel for two days, into the one of roughest and infamous passages-‘the drake passage ’. However sea birds like albatrosses, petrels are a regular feature along with whales, orcas and occasional dolphins. Safe to say you won’t be traversing alone in these waters.

Day 5 to 6Antarctic Peninsula- Weddell Sea

Now comes the most exciting and chilling as well as unpredictable part of the tour as you enter the polar region. The Path is dependent on your able ship captain and the weather. Here are some of the Major Islands you will visit (not necessarily in the same order):
Brown Bluff: The most scenic stop on your Antarctic vacation. This piece of land is adorned with the brown volcanic scape along with white icing of snow. It is home to a large Adelie Penguin rookery and Gentoo penguin as well as petrel colonies.
Devil Island: Another abode of large penguin colony it also features a melting iceberg water fall that is truly a sight to behold.
Duse Bay: A shift from fauna this sight is best viewed through a helicopter ride. This is will give you a picturesque scene of colorful moss and lichen covered terrain.
Paulet Island: Another major colony of various fauna, this small circular island also boasts some historic monuments- a memory left behind by previous explorers.
Hope bay: A home to the Argentinean research station also called Esperanza Base is only one of the two civilian bases. Here you will get the opportunity to go on hikes on the white terrain.

Note: Incase of severe weather changes the tour would redirect to the lemaire Channel instead of going deeper into the Weddell Sea.
