Ultimate Wildlife Cruise–23 Day Crossing the Circle via Falklands and South Georgia

Note about expedition cruising: Due to the expeditionary nature of our voyage, specific stops cannot be guaranteed. Flexibility is paramount in expedition travel; the following itinerary depends on the conditions at the time of travel. We strive to land often and stay as long as possible, abiding by the Guidelines for Responsible Ecotourism from IAATO.

Detailed Itinerary Crossing the Circle via Falklands and South Georgia

Day 1 International Flights to Ushuaia, Argentina

Your gateway for this expedition is Ushuaia, Argentina. Nestled within the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, Ushuaia has a small-town feel yet boasts many shops, museums, cafés and restaurants that you can enjoy before your voyage. If you’re feeling adventurous, the nearby national park and Martial Glacier offer plenty of outdoor activities, such as hiking.

DAY 2 Ushuaia & Embarkation

As you embark, the anticipation grows. Trade your land legs for sea legs, meet and greet your fellow travelers and get acquainted with your ship. Since every Antarctic adventure presents new opportunities and experiences, embarkation day is just as exciting for your Expedition Team as it is for you. On board to ensure your comfort and safety, your team will also help make your wildlife dreams come true.

DAY 3 Southern Ocean

Your days at sea are filled with presentations and lectures led by your Expedition Team, who will prepare you for the wildlife that will greet you upon your arrival. In between presentations, spend time chatting with your shipmates over a drink at the bar, or enjoy the fresh air and views on the outer decks.

DAY 4-5 Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)

Upon your arrival in the Falklands (Malvinas), your camera will get its first real workout capturing the abundant wildlife and rugged feel of this sub-Antarctic region. The archipelago contains two main islands, East Falkland and West Falkland, which you will explore during daily Zodiac excursions and landings.

Stanley, also known as Port Stanley, is often a favored landing site, as the town offers a unique British outpost feel, complete with eclectic charm. You’ll be free to explore, grab a pint at the local pub or visit numerous churches and museums.

The Archipelago is rich in wildlife, especially birds, and home to Magellanic, gentoo and southern rockhopper penguins. If you’re lucky, you may even spot king penguins here as well! You can expect to see black-browed albatross, plus two endemic bird species—the flightless Falkland steamer duck and possibly the elusive Cobb’s wren.

Your team of lecturers and specialists will be sure to educate you on the local flora and fauna, making the most out of your time in the Falklands.

DAY 6-7 Southern Ocean

Sailing southeast to South Georgia, you’ll officially enter Antarctic waters once you cross the Antarctic Convergence, an invisible biological boundary encircling the continent. This meeting of oceans, where the cold Antarctic waters mix and mingle with the warmer waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, helps create the abundance of krill that attracts whales and seals to this part of the world. Your Expedition Team will notify you when you cross this invisible yet important line, and also look out for the seabirds and marine life that frequent the area.

DAY 8-11 South Georgia

This remote, mountainous island was a popular stop for many historic Antarctic expeditions and was once a haven for hunting whales and seals. Today, island wildlife populations are rebounding, but you’ll still see remnants of old whaling stations and other abandoned outposts.

One significant and historic site is the grave of the great explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. You can visit his grave at the settlement of Grytviken, which is also home to an old whaling station, plus a museum, gift shop, church and small research station.

Although South Georgia’s history is an important attraction to the island, it is the tremendous abundance of wildlife that you and your shipmates will surely find most captivating. Each landing you make on South Georgia, often referred to as the Galapagos of the Poles, will open your eyes to the wondrous lives of new, enthralling creatures.

One day you may see rookeries with hundreds of thousands of pairs of king penguins waddling on a beach, and the next, you may visit another beach blanketed with thousands of fur or elephant seals. The grasses, mountains and beaches of South Georgia all play an important role in the breeding and survival of different species on the island. This fragile and interwoven relationship is something your Expedition Team will explain to you during your time here.

DAY 12-13 Scotia Sea

Say goodbye to the king penguins, as your next destination is Antarctica! Your days at sea are filled with presentations, lectures and workshops led by your Expedition Team, who will prepare you for the wildlife that will greet you upon your arrival.

DAY 14-16 Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands

The experience is hard to put into words, but the most common reaction upon reaching the White Continent is a sense of reverence and awe. You will discover that Antarctica is a land of extremes: at one moment you’ll be overcome with a feeling of complete silence and solitude; the next, you’ll be laughing at the comical antics of a curious penguin.

Zodiac cruising, visits to historical sites and, of course, communing with seals and penguins are sure to keep you smiling every day. Perhaps you’ll catch sight of the fearless penguin eater, the leopard seal, or maybe you’ll come eye to eye with an Antarctic minke whale while you are cruising in a Zodiac. Each day and each excursion will present a new collection of creatures to delight you and keep your camera busy.

If you find yourself wanting more, treat yourself to an optional kayaking adventure (reserve in advance when booking your trip) or a plunge into Antarctic waters!

DAY 17-18 Antarctic Circle

Crossing the Antarctic Circle is an impressive achievement, as few expeditions reach so far south.

If conditions allow us to cross this famed line at 66°33´ S, we’ll toast the first explorers who ventured here, and you can raise a glass and take pride in knowing you’ve made it to a part of the world visited by very few people. This is raw Antarctica, home of the midnight sun and fantastic iceberg sightings.

DAY 19-20 Northbound Along the Peninsula

If you haven’t had your fill of Antarctic wildlife and icebergs by now, you’ll surely be satisfied by the time you return to the Drake Passage. You will continue to make excursions by Zodiac as you travel north along the western Antarctic Peninsula.

Your Expedition Team will always be on the lookout for species of seabirds, seals and whales that may have eluded you on your journey south.

DAY 21-22 Drake Passage

After more than three weeks of unique wildlife encounters and remarkable landscapes, your journey home begins. Crossing the Drake is your unofficial rite of passage, putting a final stamp of approval on your Antarctic adventure.

DAY 23 Ushuaia Disembarkation

After breakfast aboard the ship, it is time to part ways and say goodbye to your Expedition Team. Airport transfers will be provided for those departing on the first homeward flights. Other guests will be transferred to town

Antarctica FAQ

Antarctica Facts for Visitors

Climate

Typical daytime temperatures for the Antarctic Peninsula during the summer are -2º to 4ºC (28º to 39ºF). However, the weather is quite changeable, and you may encounter different conditions not only in a single day but even on a single landing. Also, strong winds can make it feel considerably colder (as low as -18ºC/0ºF), so you must be dressed for windy and wet conditions at all times. The only thing we can guarantee about the weather is that it will be unpredictable.

Health and Safety

Although there will be a licensed English-speaking physician on board, the vessel’s medical facility is a basic infirmary and full medical facilities may be days away. It is therefore imperative for your own safety that you are in good health and have taken all appropriate precautions. Our medical form will help you to determine whether or not your health level is appropriate. Please be honest with us and with yourselves as you complete this form. Our ships are far from barrier free. Doors leading to the decks are heavy and narrow with high sills. Decks are often slippery with hazards such as pipes, drains, and equipment. The ship’s elevator may be closed in rough seas, requiring you to use the stairs to get to meals, presentations etc. If you have mobility issues or walk with assistance devices, carefully consider your participation in the voyage. Getting in and out of Zodiacs and walking on sometimes rocky and icy terrain can also be challenging. Our Expedition team members can help you into the Zodiac and on to shore, but cannot escort you once on shore as they have other duties. The Expedition Leader and Captain reserve the right to limit the landing participation of people with limited mobility.

Flights

Airfare is not included in trip costs. Detailed flight information and the contact information for our recommended flight ticketing agent is included in the Trip Materials we will send after you sign up; if you need help, she can help you arrange your flights.

We include one hotel night in the embarkation city on Day 1 of the trip, so you may book your flights to arrive at any time on the start date for your trip, or of course, you may choose to arrive a few days early to explore the city. To facilitate this, we’ll add an additional night immediately prior to the group night at no extra charge.

Our estimated disembarkation time from the vessel is 8:00 a.m. (0800 hrs) on the last day of the trip, with an included group transfer to the airport following disembarkation. Therefore we expect to be at the airport ready to check in about 9:00am, but this is subject to weather conditions in Ushuaia as well as sea conditions en route. Therefore, if you intend to fly out of Ushuaia on the day of disembarkation, we recommend booking your return flight as late in the day as possible. Try to avoid any flights departing before noon (1200 hrs). Arrival delays can occur and Wild Planet Adventures cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred due to delayed disembarkation.

Travel Insurance

Emergency Medical and Evacuation Insurance is required for this tour. 

Seasickness

While in the Antarctic Peninsula area, seasickness shouldn’t be a problem for anyone save the most extremely sensitive people. It is best to be prepared for the Drake Passage crossing however. Motion sickness medication is preventative not curative. Please be prepared and bring your own medication and start taking it as soon as the ship leaves port – don’t wait until you feel sick! Patch style medication and suppositories work best. Oral medication won’t work if you can’t “keep it down”, so again, take it immediately after embarking, don’t wait to see how you feel without it. Also, the best advice we can give you is this: EAT. It may sound counter-intuitive but the sensation of nausea is much worse on an empty stomach. Eat a little something at every meal, stay hydrated and rested, take your medication and you’ll be fine.

Trip Materials

Detailed information about your specific tour will be sent to you after you make your reservation with us. These trip materials include information about flights, packing, entry and departure requirements, airport transfers, gratuities, etc. Please take a moment to read this important informtation upon receipt.

Conditions

Smoking policy: Smoking is permitted in designated outside areas only.

Itinerary route: The itinerary route, stops and plans are subject to change by unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, such as weather, wildlife sightings, or road conditions.

Medical conditions and travel risks: Travel to remote places is exciting, but it is important to understand and accept the risks, both medical and logistical. Minor medical problems can usually be treated, but due to the fact that we often travel to locations far from medical facilities, there can be no expectation for immediate medical treatment or evacuation, even in cases of trauma. Anyone with health problems needing close medical supervision should not consider going on this trip. Bring enough medication for the duration of the trip for any chronic medical needs, since pharmacies are usually not available. When you send your tour deposit and signed reservation form, you certify to us that you do not knowingly have any physical or other conditions that would create a risk for yourself or for other trip participants.
