The Classic Antarctica Cruise

Antarctica is among the most beautiful, pristine and least explored places on the planet. Truly exhilarating, mysterious and alluring! Book a cabin aboard the Best Antarctica Ushuaia cruise and have the adventure of a lifetime!

For over two centuries, the ‘White Desert’ has attracted scientists and adventurers, drawn by its unmatched natural beauty. Nowadays, this largely untouched wilderness is more accessible to a new generation of intrepid explorers. You can now visit the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands in the comfort of the P/V Ushuaia. From the southern spring onwards, large birds and sea mammals gather at breeding colonies and the ceaseless daylight of the southern summer makes exploration in this incomparable landscape a unique experience.

Please note: The itinerary is a guide only. Our exact route and program will vary to take best advantage of local weather and ice conditions and opportunities to view wildlife. Changes will be made by the Captain and/or Expedition Leader to facilitate the best results from the prevailing conditions. A daily program sheet will be issued on board. Flexibility is the key to success.
