Antarctica Deeper Exploration 7823
Silversea’s extended 16-day itinerary offers an opportunity for those who want to delve deeper into the environment of Antarctica, Earth’s frozen frontier. After departing from Ushuaia, you’ll travel to the fascinating outpost of the United Kingdom, the Falkland Islands. This small archipelago is a birder’s paradise, a stopping point for hundreds of different species of migrating birds. En route, you will sail past sculpted icebergs and calving glaciers. You’ll continue on to another of the world’s most remote islands, South Georgia, which was a stopping point for many polar explorers before you.
Once you reach Antarctica, you’ll likely be dazzled by the stunning landscapes, but also be on the lookout for some of the captivating wildlife: penguins, seals, whales, and seabirds. As you return to civilization and make your way across the legendary Drake Passage, the days at sea provide opportunities to learn more about all you have seen, from the natural wonders to the heroic stories of human exploration of this, the most mysterious of continents.
