10 Night Cruise sailing from Ushuaia roundtrip aboard Fridtjof Nansen. Hotel stay pre-cruise in Buenos Aires.
This is an expedition where the elements rule. The weather, wind and ice conditions will determine our final schedule. Safety is paramount, and the captain decides the sailing itinerary during the voyage. Therefore, this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience, and why every expedition with Hurtigruten is unique.
Day 1 Buenos Aires - Hotel
Cultural and Cool
Your adventure starts with an overnight stay in Buenos Aires, the bustling capital of Argentina. Spend the evening at your leisure and discover “Paris of South America” on a warm spring/summer day, or extend your stay with an optional pre- and/or post-cruise Land Adventure to explore Wild Patagonia.
Day 2 Buenos Aires/Ushuaia - Flight & Embarkation
Tierra del Fuego
Fly early in the morning to Ushuaia, where MS Fridtjof Nansen awaits. Once onboard, we start our journey with a welcome dinner.
Day 3-4 Drake Passage - At sea
Crossing Drake Passage
Prepare yourself for Antarctica as we cross famed Drake Passage. MS Fridtjof Nansen is designed to make polar exploration a pleasure for all ages and learning levels. There will be lectures on the environment, films about Antarctica in the Science Center, and the ship offers a pool, hot tubs and a wellness center to enrich your journey.
Day 5-9 Antarctica
Welcome to the most remote area on Earth! Come ashore to explore breathtaking Antarctic scenery and encounter penguins. From on deck, there will be ample opportunities to sight whales and seals.
We always work with the elements in Antarctica, and intend to land on the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula.
The places we visit offer opportunities to discreetly observe different types of penguin colonies, seals, and whales, as well as see glaciers and icebergs in every shape and color. We also visit whaling stations and scientific facilities.
Our activities are varied and exciting. One day you might go ashore to see penguins and hear the ominous crackling of glacial ice. The next day, you may feel the wind on your face as we cruise amidst sea ice searching for seals. Another day may entail kayaking or a walk. Our onboard photographer will be on hand to show you the basics of expedition photography to capture these amazing experiences.
Day 10-11 Drake Passage - At sea
Heading back to civilization
After exploring this exhilarating continent, we set our course back to civilization. Spend the day at sea recapping your experiences, having fun in the Science Center or just relaxing on deck, spotting the many sea birds that follow our ship.
Day 12 Ushuaia/Buenos Aires - Disembarkation & Flight
The End of the Adventure
Our Antarctic expedition cruise ends as we reach Ushuaia, and we transfer you to the airport for your flight back to Buenos Aires.
