Antarctica Excursions

Recommended Posts

We are booked for the 21 day Antarctica voyage that starts in Buenos Aires and ends in Santiago this coming February. We need guidance in the “must do” excursions on the days not sailing. Thanks for your assistance.

In the Falklands (Port Stanley) we went on the King Penguin excursion. It’s a great day with some interesting cross country driving.

I booked direct with Nyree whose family owns the property where the King’s rookery is situated (she’s the one that organizes all the locals with their 4WD to transport the passengers. nyree@estancia-excursions.com.) 

It was about half the price of doing the same tour via Seabourn.

i would book sooner rather than later as it appears there are 4 ships due in that day😳

Plus one on booking with Nyree.

 

Her own 4WDs head off first so you get a little time alone before the hordes arrive.

 

Similarly they tend to leave a little later and/or if time put a bit of an island/village tour at the end.

We took an excursion into the Chilean Lake region that was terrific.  It included lunch (good enough) plus a lot of fabulous nature site-seeing.  We were lucky to have good weather and I have lots of good photos as evidence.  Expensive, as are all Seabourn excursions, but this was one of the best.
