Adventure Options

Have a ‘Happy Penguin Christmas’ when Antarctica is at its liveliest. If you feel the festive season is a great time to get away from it all, join our special celebratory voyage. Delight in recently hatched penguin chicks, kayak near humpback and minke whales and enjoy 24 hours of daylight for visits to historic sites and scientific stations, and make a continental landing.

Highlights
• Celebrate Christmas with a few thousand penguins
• Paddle kayaks near seal-adorned ice floes
• Zodiac cruise through a maze of tinseled icebergs
• Photograph midnight sun majesty on soaring peaks
• Invigorate your senses with a polar plunge
• Step back in time within historic huts

Day 2 — Ushuaia - Embarkation

Enjoy surrounding beech forests, then embark the Greg Mortimer in late afternoon before sailing down the Beagle Channel.

Days 3 to 5 — Drake Passage and South Shetland Islands

Be mesmerized by albatross of Drake Passage. Make first landing in South Shetlands then sail down Gerlache Strait.

Days 6 to 8 — Antarctic Peninsula Southbound

Pack ice willing, enter stunning Lemaire Channel to reach Adélie penguins, perhaps visit a scientific station and historic huts.

Days 9 to 11 — Antarctic Peninsula Northbound

Return north and experience more continental landings at Paradise or Neko harbors, gentoo penguins at Cuverville Island, and close up whale encounters.

Day 12 — Drake Passage

Enjoy ‘Drake’ time to process what you’ve seen and felt on your adventure, share photos with fellow adventurers and celebrate a final night together on board.
