* NO PLACES AVAILABLE ANYMORE * The Ship sails from Stanley on the Falkland Islands towards South Georgia. During this leg Europa can usually take advantage of the prevailing strong (and sometimes stormy) westerly winds making for a good crossing to South Georgia. You will be able to experience all the aspects of seaman’s life, including watch keeping, climbing the masts and classic navigation. In sailing the Europa, teamwork is the keyword. On board you learn the names of the hundreds of different lines and 30 sails. Everybody will experience the voyage differently. The horizon will sail with the ship day after day: wandering Albatrosses, dolphins who play in the bow wave, a waxing and waning moon, etcetera. If you have a bit more time at hand, combine this trip with some extra sailing days and join the ship in Montevideo. As you will not need a flight ticket to the Falklands that is budget proof solution for 18 extra days of sailing and exploring. Three night bed & breakfast on board when in Port Stanley is included in the special combination fare. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.
Falkland Islands is a British overseas territory and an archipelago at the very south of South American continent. The breathtaking nature is the main reason for tourism, with amazing landscapes and numerous species of birds (including pinguins), seals and dolphins. Even if you're not much of a nature lover you will still find things to do. Check out the local woolen crafts – or join workshops to make some yourself; see a traditional dance performance and don't miss The Historic Dockyard Museum.
Ushuaia is commonly regarded as the most southern city in the World or 'El Fin del Mundo'. This Argentinian port is known as a starting point for expeditions to Antarctica. The city was originally built up around a prison in the early 20th century, but today tourists come to Ushuaia to visit the national park Tierra del Fuego, go skiing in the nearby mountains, or sail the Beagle canal. Ushuaias’ windy subpolar climate serves to reinforce the notion that you’re at the ‘end of the world’.
