Antarctic Peninsula

The spectacular Antarctic Peninsula is 600 miles south of Tierra del Fuego across the Drake Passage with impressive peaks such as Mount Owen, Mount Scott and Mount Jackson which are actually a continuation of the Andes. The north-western tip is ice-free for most of the year, making it the most accessible part, attracting vast colonies of penguins and  seals and forming the feeding waters for whales. The Gerlache Strait is the centre-piece for most journeys into the western Antarctic Peninsula with stunningly beautiful scenery and an abundant richness of wildlife.

Sometimes referred to as Classic Antarctica, most journeys last 10-12 days, set out from and return to Ushuaia spending a couple of days crossing the Drake Passage each way.
