Crossing the Circle via Falklands,& South Georgia: Epic Antarctica


Day 1.Buenos Aires.Arrive in Argentina's capital city, where immediate check-in has been arranged. Enjoy an afternoon tour of the city's highlights, including the Plaza de Mayo, the stately Casa Rosada, the Cabildo and the Metropolitan Cathedral. You may drive past the colorful La Boca District or San Telmo, the birthplace of tango. Get to know your fellow guests this evening at a welcome cocktail party.
Day 2.Buenos Aires-Ushuaia.Fly to the port city of Ushuaia, located at the southern tip of South America. On arrival, enjoy lunch at the Arakur resort and, time and weather permitting, take a guided trek in the Cerro Alarken Nature Reserve. Later, board 'Le Lyrial' and settle into your cabin, where you can take in views right from your own private balcony. Walk the decks and explore the common spaces as you familiarise yourself with the luxury cruiser, your home for the next 15 nights at sea .
Day 3: At Sea.There are many activities to keep you engaged while we’re at sea. You can take advantage of the library of books available on your ship, hang out at the bar chatting to other travelers or spend time out on deck, admiring the sea. Your Expedition Team will also conduct a series of presentations to familiarize yourself with how to prepare for Zodiac cruises and shore landings.
Day 4: Falkland Islands .Spend the day exploring the Falklands. Depending on your itinerary, you either visit Stanley, the Falklands’ capital, and stroll its charming streets, or explore the surrounding wilderness areas. You may also discover the southeast Falkland islands of Sea Lion or Bleaker, home to unspoiled wildlife habitats.
Days 5-6 - Cruising the South Atlantic.As you approach South Georgia, deck-side sightings of whales and other wildlife become more frequent. Time spent cruising is once again filled with informative lectures and casual talks with your guides. Scan the seas like an expert on Day 6, as the ship cruises the rich waters along shag rocks.
Days 7-9: South Georgia .South Georgia is a nearly submerged continuation of the Andes mountain range, and your days here are spent exploring its glacier-carved coves and rugged shores. Visit Salisbury Plain, St. Andrews Bay or Gold Harbour, all home to vast colonies of king penguins as well as fur and elephant seals. You also have the opportunity to retrace part of the route taken by Ernest Shackleton during his historic crossing of South Georgia in 1916. Weather permitting, you may visit his gravesite in Grytviken alongside your onboard historian, an expert on the great explorer’s life.
Days 10-11: Cruising the Scotia Sea .During your time cruising the Scotia Sea — rich with marine mammals and fish — your expert lecturers recap your adventures in South Georgia. They also share more enriching lectures, revealing more of what is to come on the Seventh Continent, from the terrain to the hardy wildlife that inhabits this dramatic environment.
Days 12-14 .Antarctica.The ship’s itinerary calls for landings on the Antarctic Peninsula and a number of South Shetland Islands, which may include Half Moon, Penguin and Deception. Other possible island visits may include Cuverville, Paulet and Goudier. There are also plans to sail through Paradise Bay and the Lemaire Channel, the latter often referred to as “Kodak Alley” for its breathtaking, picture-perfect beauty. Additional opportunities for exploration include a stop at a scientific research station. While on board ‘Le Boreal,’ look for whales and birdlife from the deck or your own private balcony.
Days 15-16 .Drake Passage.Bid farewell to Antarctica as you cruise back to Ushuaia through the Drake Passage, where you find more opportunities to observe marine and birdlife. Reflect on your incredible journey with fellow guests and new friends.
