Day 1 — Ushuaia, Argentina Embarkation

Your journey begins at the pier in Ushuaia, Argentina. Board your ship and sail along the Beagle Channel towards Puerto Williams, Chile, the southernmost town in the world, where the ship will clear formalities for Cape Horn approach.

Day 2 — Cape Horn

After an overnight crossing of Nassau Bay, you awake in full view of legendary Cape Horn! Weather permitting, board a Zodiac and be one of the few privileged adventurers to step foot on this famous and rarely visited island. Sail and explore the area in depth before setting course north towards the Falkland Islands.

Day 3 — At Sea

As you sail through the South Atlantic en route to the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), attend an engaging program of lectures and presentations. In the company of expert guides, watch for wildlife from the lounge or from the outside decks. You may spot magnificent seabirds, such as albatrosses and petrels, as well as different species of whales.

Day 4 — West Falklands (south)

Ruggedly beautiful and remote, places such as New Island, Weddell Island or West Point are located at the extreme west of the Falklands’ archipelago. Dramatic cliffs contrast with sheltered sandy bays and natural harbors. They host large concentration and great diversity of wildlife. Some of the best wildlife experiences are just a short distance from the settlements.

Day 5 — West Falklands (north)

Named after HMS Carcass, which visited in the late 18th century, the terrain is varied with rocky ridges, steep cliffs, open plains, white sand beaches and coves. Saunders is the second largest offshore island and has very varied terrain, from rocky hills to sweeping shorelines. It is an important bird area and has exceptional wildlife. All five breeding species of penguin can be spotted here along with black-browed albatross and many other birds.

Day 6 — The Falkland Sound

You cruise down the Falkland Sound, sightseeing its rough and untouched landscapes. We immerse ourselves in the past and recent history of the islands. You visit settlements and meet the locals, getting to know the culture of farming families. As we stop at sites that were active battlefields during the 1982 conflict, our historians introduce us to regional geopolitics.

Day 7 — Port Stanley

Join our expedition team on guided walking tours in town or to Gipsy Cove. Or take the option to explore on your own and absorb the local atmosphere, grabbing lunch at the pub, visiting the maritime museum, the church, hunting for souvenirs or walking down Ross Road, paying tribute at the war memorials at the waterfront. Note: Small-group day tours and half-day tours can be purchased on board the ship to visit Volunteer Point (by 4×4 vehicle or helicopter), battlefield tours (by 4×4 vehicle), and others. Options will be presented on board.

Day 8 — Disembarkation

Transfer to the airport at Mt. Pleasant will be provided from the ship according to the scheduled flight.
