Ports of Call
Ushuaia, Argentina
City Ushuaia

The world's southernmost city, Ushuaia overlooks Beagle Channel, named after the ship that took Charles Darwin to the bottom of the world. Founded just over one hundred years ago, this rustic town is situated amidst incredible snowcapped mountains, dramatic waterfalls, massive glaciers, and a forest known for its red foliage. Tierra del Fuego, the "Land of Fire," twelve miles to the west of Ushuaia, is known for its glacial landscape and its national park, which is a bird-watcher's paradise.

Drake Passage, Antarctica

Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica
City Antarctic Peninsula

Not too many ships make it as far south as Antarctica, so the journey is a highlight by itself. The Antarctic Peninsula juts out from Antarctica towards the eastern side of South America between the 59th and 76th West longitudinal parallels. And since you are on your way do not forget your camera as you are bound to see some amazing creatures on a never more pristine background. For starters you will see gentoo and chinstrap penguins; blue-eyed shags and snowy sheathbills; crabeater seals and minke whales.
