Greg Mortimer, Antarctic Explorer Cruise ex Punta Arenas to Ushuaia

Hotel stay in Punta Arenas pre-cruise with a flight to King George Island the following day to embark on a 9 Night Cruise to Ushuaia aboard Greg Mortimer.

NOTE: Cruise operates in approximate reverse order to the itinerary outlined below.

Antarctica at its most accessible! Save time (and at least one Drake Passage crossing) on our unique 'Fly/Sail' voyages to the icy continent’s picturesque west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Mountains disgorging glaciers to the sea; humpback and minke whales feasting on krill; lively penguin colonies watched by hungry leopard seals – it all awaits you. Simply choose the dates that suit.

DAY 1 Arrive in Ushuaia and make your way to your downtown hotel. Enjoy rugged mountain scenery, lively cafes, restaurants and bars.

DAY 2 After checking out of your hotel, enjoy free time exploring Ushuaia and surrounds. Embark the Greg Mortimer late afternoon and sail down wildlife-rich Beagle Channel.

DAYS 3–4 Photograph seabirds and swell of Drake Passage, marvel at first icebergs and landing in South Shetland Islands, spectacular scenery of Gerlache Strait.

DAYS 5–7 From historic Port Lockroy to renowned Lemaire Channel, continental landings, and Zodiac cruising among icebergs in Antarctica’s heart.

DAYS 8–10 Return north, searching for penguins, cormorants, and leopard seals on Hyrdurga Rocks, or visit volcanic Deception Island.

DAYS 11–12 Landing on King George Island, home to scientific bases, board our flight to Punta Arenas, enjoying a final night stay in town.

Itinerary is subject to ice and weather conditions.
