Now, Adventures by Disney is taking on a unique expedition. Guests have a chance to travel to the gorgeous land of Patagonia and the mysterious frozen content of Antarctica!

The itinerary is nothing like anything you have ever experienced. The journey begins in Buenos Aires where guests will fly to Ushuaia, Argentina. There they will enjoy experiences such as the End of the World Train, Tierra del Fuego National Park, and End of the World Post Office.

After time in Ushuaia, it will be time to set sail on the Drake Passage. When Guests arrive in Antarctica, adventure awaits in the form of several possible excursions. Excursions in Antarctica could include:

  • Zodiac Wildlife Lookout: Ride across the glacial waters in search of local wildlife—penguins often swim and dive alongside the boat, or marvel at the sheer power of an Orca as it breaches the water’s surface.
  • Zodiac Cruise to Antarctic Peninsula: Board a Zodiac boat and cruise across the water to a place few have gone before—Antarctica! Step foot on the 7th continent and explore this terrain that is unlike any place on Earth.
  • Hilltop Hike: Experience breathtaking panoramic views of Antarctica’s natural beauty on a hike that is customizable to your comfort level ranging from easy to more strenuous.
  • Penguin Colony Walk: Walk along the “penguin highway” —the paths penguins create to go to and from the sea—as you observe their nesting rituals or watch as they teach their newborns survival skills in the colony.
  • Iceberg Observation: Get an up-close look at a massive, towering iceberg.

All in all the 12-day journey is sure to be an amazing adventure.

The price is no doubt out of reach for many World Travelers. But, it may just be worth taking on a bit of debt for those who want to go somewhere few have ever seen with their own eyes.
