Daily travel program
On December 28th you will arrive in Ushuaia from Buenos Aires. On arrival, you will have the choice between visiting Tierra del Fuego National Park and departing directly to the yacht.
For reference. Ushuaia - the real edge of the planet Earth. In the city, by the way, you can put a stamp in your document stating that you were at the edge of the world. Only 45 thousand people live in such a distant northern city. Ushuaia is the capital of “Tierra del Fuego”. Almost from all sides the city is surrounded by mountains called the Andes. The first inhabitants appeared on the edge of the world as much as 10,000 years ago.
Now there is very little entertainment in the city for those who save their budget. But for those who have a budget of almost unlimited entertainment is full.One of the most interesting is the flight over the city by helicopter. Believe that there are open such horizons that you can never forget.
From 5 to 6 o'clock in the evening will be made landing on the ship. At half past six in the evening, a dream trip will begin, which will allow you to celebrate the New Year 2019 in Antarctica. Somewhere around seven in the evening guests will be introduced to the staff of the yacht.
January 29-30, you will sail the Drake Strait. There you will be waited by the real northern winds and sea waters boiling from the cold. Birds will accompany the entire mega-yacht in the hope that someone will feed them. After the vessel passes the zone of the Arctic Convergence, there will be several times more birds. You are probably interested, why is this happening? We will not reveal to you all the cards. About these and other wonders will tell you on the yacht.
From December 31 to January 4, you will visit the Arctic Peninsula, as well as the islands named Shetland. On the way to the peninsula, you will find many surprises, as in these places the path will change depending on weather conditions. But there are advantages to this, because the team will decide what to show you on this particular day, and not just follow the route studied.You will be able to see the seals sunbathing directly on the sea ice floes, you will see flocks of penguins and other unusual animals.
The visit plans will also include various scientific stations where you can talk with the workers. If possible, various unusual places and coves will be visited.
