Bark Europa:
Ushuaia (AR) - Ushuaia (AR)

28 December 2020 - 18 January 2021

New Year on board a Tall Ship. Exploring the White Continent. If “simply” visiting Antarctica isn’t unique enough for you, now you can do it with a century-old Tall Ship! Board Bark Europa in Ushuaia for an adventure of a lifetime. Sail south to the Drake Passage before reaching Antarctica. Enjoy the breathtaking landscapes, amazing wildlife and the rare feeling of disconnecting with the over-busy world. This is digital detox at its best: watching penguins instead of videos, sailing instead of going to the gym, meeting people from all over the world – on board, instead of on-line. Discover the continent with a guide who will answer your questions and bring you to the shore for explorations (and amazing photos!). Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Only places in 4/6-person cabins available. IMPORTANT: The Antarctica journeys fill out very quickly. Contact us about availability.

Ports

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’.

    "The wind increased and when we took down some sails, I felt the adrenalin rush through my body"

    "IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
