Itinerary Highlights 

Buenos Aires, Argentina

NOV 15, 2024 - NOV 16, 2024

In 1580, Spanish explorer Juan de Garay planted the seeds of what would become Buenos Aires. Today, it flourishes as the captivating capital of Argentina and a cosmopolitan metropolis that elegantly straddles two worlds.

 

Often hailed as the 'Paris of South America,' Buenos Aires enchants with its blend of European elegance and Latin American vibrancy. As a sister city to global hubs like Moscow and Miami, Buenos Aires wears its rich cultural heritage on its sleeve. Its architectural diversity is a testament to a past deeply rooted in both the Old and New Worlds, offering a visual narrative that spans centuries and continents.

Ushuaia, Argentina

NOV 16, 2024

Once deemed too harsh for European settlement, Ushuaia's rugged beauty was the realm of its native inhabitants - the Yahgan People. Today, it holds the distinctive title of being the southernmost city on Earth, often referred to as 'the end of the world.' Situated along the banks of the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia unveils itself like an artist's masterpiece. A mosaic of vibrant houses adds a splash of color against the dramatic backdrop of snow-capped mountains. Dominating this breathtaking panorama is Monte Olivia, its jagged peaks soaring 4,530 feet above the landscape.

 

The terrain transforms from dense forests of Southern beech trees at sea level to alpine ecosystems as you ascend. Thanks to its strategic location and proximity to the Antarctic Peninsula, Ushuaia has earned its status as the gateway to the Great White Continent. Yet, Ushuaia is more than just a stepping stone to Antarctica. It's a treasure trove of natural history, indigenous heritage, and the spirit of exploration. From embarking on awe-inspiring treks in the nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park to delving into the rich narratives at 'The End of the World' museum, Ushuaia promises a plethora of experiences that cater to the curious and the adventurous alike.

Antarctic Experience

NOV 19, 2024 - NOV 23, 2024

Depending on weather, ice conditions and reported wildlife distribution during your voyage, your captain and expedition team will program an additional day of discovery and adventure for you in Antarctica.

Experience the magic of Antarctica, its timeless majesty and pristine beauty. Those who have seen it claim it’s impossible to adequately describe, that you must go yourself. We believe that is an excellent suggestion, and one we can assist travelers in accomplishing. Guests will be accompanied by a veteran Expedition Team, who in many cases have made Antarctica the focus of their life’s work. They’ll tell you what they know, point out what they think you ought to see, and step ashore with you to share the profound experience of adventure and discovery that brings them back year after year. 

When you cruise with Seabourn, we promise a voyage that is nothing short of magical. See penguins, whales and other diverse wildlife, kayak around icebergs and massive glaciers, hike along the majestic continent and see the wonders of Antarctica up close. 

Each cruise to Antarctica includes the following exclusive amenities and activities designed to enhance every moment:

  • Inclusive zodiac tours and landings*
  • Digital photography workshops
  • Complimentary Seabourn expedition-grade parka and day pack
  • Opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings from the ship and on shore
  • Onboard Expedition team providing narration and insight to all aspects of the experience
  • Inspiring Enrichment Program and special guest speakers on board

*Final itineraries are subject to weather, ice and other conditions and subject to change.
