    20 Night Cruise sailing from Montevideo to Ushuaia aboard G Expedition. 1 night hotel stay pre-cruise in Montevideo.

    Challenge. Desolation. Unlimited wonder. It’s not difficult to grasp what attracted the great explorers to Antarctica. Get a personal appreciation for the struggle to tame the bottom of the world on this 22-day adventure to the land than entranced Shackleton and countless others since. Down here, you’ll explore the Falkland Islands, encounter abandoned whaling stations on South Georgia Island and pay your respects at Shackleton’s grave. Elsewhere, you’ll catch up with penguins (King, Chinstrap and Gentoo varieties) and learn all about them through daily lectures, get close to whales and cavorting seals from a Zodiac boat and keep an eye peeled for towering icebergs and massive glaciers. Prepare to be astonished.

    Day by Day Itinerary:

    Day 1 Montevideo
    Arrive in Montevideo at any time. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Uruguay's capital city.

    Day 2 Montevideo/South Atlantic Ocean
    Embarkation on the G Expedition begins in the afternoon at the port of Montevideo.

    Days 3–5 South Atlantic Ocean/Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)
    With course set southeast, become acquainted with the ship. Enjoy the lecture and educational sessions about the extraordinary human and natural history of the Antarctic region.

    Days 6–7 Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)/Southern Ocean
    The Falkland Islands provide a rare opportunity to witness the biological diversity and extraordinary scenery of the southern islands. Penguins and albatross are abundant here, and the Falklands have the largest black-browed albatross colony in the world. In Stanley, meet the hardy local inhabitants whose colourful houses provide contrast to the long, dark winters.

    Days 8–9 Southern Ocean/South Georgia
    With course set for South Georgia, days at sea are filled with lectures to prepare for landings. Look out for the many whales that inhabit these waters.

    Days 10–13 South Georgia/Scotia Sea
    Home to many interesting sites (including the grave of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton), South Georgia has several former whaling stations and boasts plenty of wildlife. Visit a huge colony of king penguins, a major highlight of this part of the journey. Weather permitting, enjoy 3-4 days free to explore this island.

    Days 14–15 Scotia Sea/South Shetland Islands
    Plotting a southwesterly course across the Scotia Sea, sail for two days, retracing Shackleton's route backwards.

    Days 16–19 South Shetland Islands/Drake Passage
    Experience some of the most unique wildlife and awe-inspiring scenery in the South Shetland Islands, just north of the Antarctic Peninsula. Attempt two shore landings per day (weather permitting), and encounter gentoo, chinstrap, and Adélie penguin rookeries; Weddell, crabeater, and leopard seals; and orca, humpback, and minke whales in the cold Antarctic waters.

    Days 20–21 Drake Passage/Ushuaia
    Reflect on a memorable adventure and take in some final lectures on route back to Ushuaia. Keep a careful look out for a last chance to spot whales.
