Sail iceberg-dotted waters on an epic journey from Ushuaia to the White Continent, spotting magical wildlife along the way

Visit Antarctica and you'll discover a land of seemingly endless unspoilt scenery, dramatic weather, towering icebergs and majestic marine life. This is a destination like no other and our voyage to the virtually uninhabited continent will be a truly unforgettable experience.

You'll start your journey in Buenos Aires, Argentina's bustling capital, where you'll have some time to explore the city known as the 'Paris of South America'. Then it's on to Ushuaia, in Argentina's southernmost region, where you'll embark your state-of-the-art custom-built expedition ship, MS Roald Amundsen.

As you cruise from Ushuaia to Antarctica through the fascinating Drake Passage, the onboard team will equip you with all you need to make the most of your polar expedition.

As always, nature is in charge. Your expert expedition team will travel with you and monitor conditions to give you the best adventure possible, with opportunities for kayaking, ice cruising, whale watching, hiking and more.

As you sail, you can learn more about the White Continent by joining lectures in the dedicated onboard Science Centre. Here, experts will talk passionately about Antarctica's history and the science of its unique landscapes. You'll also get the chance to talk to the onboard photographer, who'll provide helpful tips on capturing the wildlife and landscapes that await you in Antarctica.

After five days exploring Antarctica, you'll head north, crossing the Drake Passage to the Falklands to explore the rolling green hills and white sands of the picturesque archipelago. A warm welcome awaits you in the capital Stanley. There'll also be visits to the penguin and fur seal colonies that populate the shores.

During your time on board, you'll also be able to soak in breathtaking views from the comfort of a hot tub, the infinity pool, the spectacular panoramic sauna or the observation deck. You may even spot humpback, orca, minke, and fin whales as you sail.
