Trip Highlights

•   This is our classic Antarctica cruise, perfect for first time explorers or seasoned adventurers. For the extended version of this trip (with an extra day on the Antarctic Peninsula) see trip code GQMDE or https://www.intrepidtravel.com/antarctica/discover-antarctica-11-days-122195

•   Freezing is great but freedom is better. Customise your trip with a wide range of optional activities on top of regular Zodiac excursions. Explore the water by kayak, sign up for a photography masterclass, rejuvenate with some onboard yoga and a massage, take a refreshing polar plunge or camp overnight like a true polar explorer.

•   Whereas most polar expeditions of this kind have a crew-to-passenger ratio of ten, fifteen or twenty to one, Intrepid expeditions on the Ocean Endeavour have an expedition crew member for every 8 passengers for a greater personal touch.

•   Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages between them. They’re experts in marine biology, glaciology and Antarctic history, and they’ll share their knowledge throughout the journey during a comprehensive lecture program.

•   Rest assured that footprints are all you’ll leave behind. Your Antarctica expedition is carbon offset, and we serve only sustainably sourced seafood, avoid single-use plastics and use biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products.

•   Travelling solo? This is your perfect Antarctic adventure, with single cabins at the same price as some twins.

Where you'll be staying

Ocean Endeavour 2020

Not only is the Ocean Endeavour the only polar expedition ship in Antarctica focused on health and wellness – it also has, on our new voyages starting in 2020, one crew member for every eight travellers. This outstanding crew-to-passenger ratio means a greater personal touch and more time with onboard experts. With contemporary interiors, lounges for learning and reflection, Zodiacs for remote exploration, a wide range of cabin types, a surplus of space and breathtaking 360° views from the flydeck, the Ocean Endeavour is the Antarctic expedition vessel to be on in 2020.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Ushuaia in Argentina – the world’s southernmost city. You’ll be briefed at the hotel tonight on the journey and details for tomorrow’s embarkation, but if you happen to arrive early there are a surprising amount of ways to entertain yourself at ‘the End of the World’. Check out the Museo Maritimo to brush up on the region’s history or take a stroll down Avenida San Martin if you’re after any last-minute essentials before departing. Oh, and because this is Argentina – if all else fails, head to a local restaurant to get your fill of red wine and steak. A traditional asado experience – muy bueno!
