Your Journey ends where it started: Ushuaia. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years. Only places in 4/6-person cabins available. IMPORTANT: The Antarctica journeys fill out very quickly. Contact us about availability.
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’.
