ITINERARY

Day 1 - 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 and historic arts, and culinary pleasure. Arrive at your hotel for your one night stay.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires > Ushuaia
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.

Day 3 - At sea
Make yourself at home on board Scenic Eclipse, where luxury is almost limitless.  As you sail south, wildlife spotting opportunities abound; your Discovery Team will be out on 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 - Antarctic Peninsula
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. There is no place on the planet like Antarctica.

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.

Days 5 & 6 - Antarctic Peninsula
Cruise the Antarctic Peninsula.

Day 7 - At sea
Sailing towards South Georgia gives you 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 you’ll encounter on your way. You may decide to join the avid whale watchers hoping to get a glimpse of one of these leviathans, or simply contemplate the vastness of the sea.

Day 8 - At sea
Sail towards South Georgia.

Day 9 - South Georgia
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 the 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 lively areas on earth. The abundant marine life supports millions of seals, whales, penguins and seabirds. Shackleton and five of his crew sailed from Elephant Island in the James Caird for 16 days and 1,300 kilometres 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 you explore South Georgia, you will have the opportunity to reflect on Shackleton’s epic journey.

Discovery
Equipped with a fleet of custom built Zodiacs and kayaks, your discovery excursions will take you to the places of your wildest dreams.

Day 10 - South Georgia
Continue to explore South Georgia.

Day 11 - At sea
Time spent at sea is yours to do with as you please. Our world-class amenities are certain to keep you busy, from the on board theatre and Senses Spa, to wonderful dining experiences. Spot icebergs and marine life from the comfort of your private verandah.

Day 12 - Falkland Islands
Remote and sparsely populated, the Falkland Islands are a wildlife lovers paradise. You will visit a number of the outer islands, where large colonies of penguins and albatross thrive.  Fur seals and elephant seals roam sandy beaches; while the surrounding waters are home to whales and dolphins. Visit the very British capital, Stanley and its small but thriving community.
