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.
South Georgia is an island over 1500 miles away from the Antarctic Peninsula. It is the location for two research facilities. The King Edward Point research facility is conducting Applied Fisheries Research on behalf of the Government of South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. The Bird Island research facility is conducting population biology, ecosystem dynamics and behavior of seabirds and seals. From their inception both research facilities have been occupied sporadically. However, they are now being manned on a continuous basis. Though most of Antarctica is covered in snow, you may be surprised to actually see green grass grow on the hillsides of this island.
Elephant Island is a popular attraction to Antarctic tourists because of the historical experiences of Captain Shackleton of the Endurance and his 27-crew men. In January 1915, they were ship wrecked in the pack ice of Weddell Sea. Stranded on ice floes and three small boats from the Endurance they finally made it to Elephant Island. While the crew survived on seal and penguin meet, Captain Shackleton took 5 crewmembers with him to the island of South Georgia where he and one other crewmember hiked 36 hours across South Georgia to the whaling station on the opposite side. From there Shackleton borrowed a tugboat to mount a rescue of his men on the opposite side of South Georgia Island and on Elephant Island. After four more months and three failed attempts, Shackleton was finally able to illustrate a Captains loyalty to his crew on August 30, 1916. Not a crewman was lost.
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.
