Day 1: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Latin passion and European Romance define the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, a dynamic mecca known for its wide-ranging architectural styles, contemporary and historic arts, and culinary pleasures and parrillas (steakhouses).

Day 2: Flight from Buenos Aires | Ushuaia | Embark

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
Fly from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Ushuaia, where you’ll board Scenic Eclipse. Within the Tierro del Fuego archipelago, adventurers flock to Ushuaia for its excellent hiking, sailing, and kayaking.

Day 3: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Make yourself at home on board the Scenic Eclipse, where luxury is almost limitless. As you sail south, wildlife spotting opportunities abound; your Discovery Team will be out on the deck looking for albatross, prions, and petrels that follow the ship. They will present lectures on the history and geology of the Falkland Islands and the Southern Ocean.

Day 4-6: Antarctic Peninsula

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
The Antarctic Peninsula contains some of the world’s most impressive scenery and wildlife. A network of channels surrounded by towering mountain peaks covered in snow and enormous glaciers abound.  Waters rich with krill are home to whales, penguins, and seals – alive, rich, and thriving with activity – there is no place on the planet like Antarctica.

Day 7-8: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Sailing towards South Georgia gives us time to slow to the rhythm of the sea. There will be plenty of time to simply relax and be entranced by the many seabirds we’ll encounter on our way. You may decide to join the avid whale watchers hoping to get a glimpse of leviathan, or simply contemplate the vastness of the sea.

Day 9-10: South Georgia

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
South Georgia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island is a tiny speck in the vastness of the South Atlantic Ocean, one of the most remote parts of our planet. A 3,000-metre mountain range forms the spine of this long, narrow island. Between the mountains, shattered glaciers carve their way through tussock grass to the deeply indented coastline. Despite being such a small outpost in the vastness of the South Atlantic, the sea around South Georgia is one of the most productive areas on Earth. The abundant marine life supports millions of seals, whales, penguins, and other seabirds.

Elephant Island. The island from which Shackelton and five of his crew sailed in the James Caird for 16 days and 1,300 kilometers and finally found safety in the tiny entrance of Cave Cove. This epic story of survival began with the sinking of his ship, the Endurance, in the Weddell Sea, six months earlier. As we explore South Georgia, we will have the opportunity to reflect on Shackleton’s epic journey.

Day 11: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Time spent at sea is yours to do with as you please. Our world-class amenities are certain to keep you busy, from the onboard theatre and Spa Sanctuary to a wonderful dining experience. Spot icebergs and marine life from the comfort of your private verandah.

Day 12-13: Falkland Islands

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Remote and sparsely populated, Falkland Islands is a wildlife lovers paradise.  We will visit a number of the outer islands, where large colonies of penguins and albatross thrive.  Fur seals and elephant seals scatter sandy beaches; while the surrounding waters are home to whales and dolphins.
We will visit the very British capital, Stanley, and its small but thriving community.

Day 14-18: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 5 Breakfasts, 5 Lunches, 5 Dinners
As we head north to Ushuaia, we have time to reflect on our experience of a lifetime, knowledge garnered from our Discovery team, and the unsurpassed luxury of Scenic Eclipse.

Day 19: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

  • 1 Breakfast
It’s time to say farewell to your newfound friends and the crew.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
