Day 1 Buenos Aires
Discover the Paris of South America for yourself and get a taste of what the birthplace of the Tango has to offer. MS Fram will depart at noon.
Day 2-4 At sea
Acquaint yourself with the ship and your fellow travellers, follow our on board lecture series, enjoy the fresh air out on deck or relax in our keep-fit area or observation lounge.
Day 5 At Sea/Falkland Islands
Thanks to a unique sub-Antarctic eco-system, more than 70 animal and bird species live on these islands. The landscape is majestic, with cliffs and gentle beaches. We hope to reach North West Falkland in the evening.
Day 6-7 Falkland Islands
We will explore the north-west part of the Falklands further. We then continue to Port Stanley, the Islands’ capital, which makes a wonderful starting point for various excursions in the area. You can choose to take an optional excursion or explore the town on your own.
Day 8-9 At sea
On our way to South Georgia we will learn more about the history and the spectacular wildlife of the island also known as the Serengeti of the Southern Ocean.
Day 10-11 South Georgia
The alpine-peaked island of South Georgia has a variety and density of wildlife that will overwhelm even the most blasé visitor. The largest king penguin colonies in the world are flanked by groups of fur and elephant seals. You will also experience long abandoned whaling stations and the poignant highlight for many a visitor, the grave of Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton.
Day 12-13 At sea
We set sail for the southernmost continent and en route learn more about this fascinating white land through exciting lectures.
Day 14-16 Antarctica
When you believe you have seen it all, Antarctica will make you re-consider. The last untouched place on Earth, with its crisp air, icebergs and endless, white mountain ranges, this continent is dedicated to science and peace. There are no permanent human inhabitants but it is home to millions of penguins and the feeding area for thousands of whales. Words simply cannot describe the feeling of being on the Great White Continent. The ice, wind and weather dictate life in Antarctica as well as our route. Every voyage is unique and our experienced crew will make all voyages an experience of a lifetime. The final choice of landings will be made in the course of the voyage.
Day 17-18 Drake Passage
With our bow pointed north and a collection of unforgettable images and experiences in our memories, our sturdy MS Fram takes us safely back across the famous Drake Passage.
Day 19 Ushuaia/Buenos Aires
We arrive in Ushuaia in the morning. Ushuaia is the world’s southernmost city and the capital of the province of Tierra del Fuego. Your Antarctic voyage has come to an end, and the journey back continues with our charter flight to Buenos Aires.
