This is a great trip for those who are venturing to the continent for the first time. Departing from Ushuaia, the trips focus on the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula – the landing sites located in the Gerlache Strait.
Many of the Antarctic operators also run voyages in the Arctic regions. At the end of the Antarctic season, when the ships reposition from the southern to the northern hemisphere, companies offer trips that, for the length, tend to be good value for money. Although these trips have a fair amount of sea days, you’ll have the opportunity to visit some of the most remote islands in the world, such as Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island.
