Day 1: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Spend the day in Buenos Aires. Latin passion and European romance define the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, a dynamic mecca known for its wide-ranging architectural styles, contemporary historic arts and culinary pleasures. Arrive at your hotel for your one night stay. 

Day 2: Flight from Buenos Aires | Ushuaia | Embark

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
Your journey into wonder begins as you fly from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, known as the southernmost city in the world, where the crew will warmly greet you as you board Scenic Eclipse. Settle into your handsomely appointed suite and acquaint yourself with the luxurious facilities of your Discovery Yacht. Toast the start of your voyage at the welcome cocktail reception hosted by the Captain who will introduce your expert Discovery Leaders and their team. Set sail and cruise through the Beagle Channel and admire the dramatic views of the Andean mountains of Tierra del Fuego from the comfort of your private veranda. 

Day 3-4: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Relax and enjoy the amazing facilities of your floating resort as you cruise towards the Antarctic Peninsula. An entertaining presentation by the Discovery Team in the state-of-the-art theatre will excite you for what’s to come, or relax in your suite and watch the live streaming on your TV. Your palate will be delighted as you explore the extensive range of dining options, or a butler will serve you as you dine in-suite. The first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains signal that you have reached the Antarctic Peninsula.

Day 5-10: Antarctic Peninsula

  • Ship
  • 6 Breakfasts, 6 Lunches, 6 Dinners
Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, a host of choices are now open and, depending on the ice and weather conditions, the Antarctic Peninsula is yours to explore. Your experienced Discovery Team Leaders, who have made countless journeys to Antarctica, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day, making the most of 18–20 hours of daylight.

Discovery: Partake in daily Scenic Discovery excursions. Cruise on the Zodiacs around ice formations, step onto islands to view vast penguin rookeries and seals. Kayak around icebergs and hear the ice cracking and whales feeding below. 

The expert Captain and crew will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways which may include traversing the stunning 11-kilometers-long Lemaire Channel where steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage just 700 meters wide at its narrowest point. There may be a chance to visit a working scientific base and discuss life in these harsh conditions with the staff. In late February and March, if conditions are favorable, there may be the opportunity to cross the Antarctic Circle at latitude 66°33’ South. 

Day 11-12: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Farewell your adventure in the icy lands and set sail heading north to the continent of South America. Share memories of your experiences with new-found friends. 

Day 13: Ushuaia | Disembark | Flight to Buenos Aires

  • 1 Breakfast
Your cruise ends this morning as you farewell the crew. Disembark after breakfast to fly to Buenos Aires, taking away memories of a truly unforgettable experience.
