“I found Surtrek online as it proved to be an excellent, efficient company. Our 4 days in the Galapagos were expertly planned and we were never left without a guide - we were even walked to dinner each night and assisted with ordering!”Marian Lowenfish

Antarctic Expeditions: Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Buenos Aires

Welcome to Argentina!

The capital of Argentina, often described as the “Paris of South America,” Buenos Aires proudly embraces this title – and shows off plenty of its own culture! Explore its traditional European architecture, its cobblestoned streets lined with rustic outdoor cafes, the local artisanal and antique markets that offer plenty of bargain hunting, and whiff the mouthwatering aromas of prized Argentine beef sizzling on open parrrillas (barbeques). Buenos Aires is home to some excellent local designers, and you’ll certainly find the perfect leather jacket, long leather boots and handbags for all occasions. Above all, though, Buenos Aires is known as the home of the tango. So be sure to enjoy a traditional tango-dinner show and explore the colorful San Telmo and Recoleta neighborhoods.

Upon your arrival in Buenos Aires, you will be met at the airport and driven (private service) to your hotel.

On your first day in the city, you will be contacted by one of our “destination hosts,” who will go over the details of your itinerary with you, provide you with the printed documentation, and add any information you might need. She/he will be your local contact while you are traveling with Surtrek, and they will be ready to answer your questions, give you tips about top attractions, places to shop, best restaurants and anything else you might be interested in. But not just about Buenos Aires, they will be able to answer questions about any of the different places you will visit throughout your entire trip.

You will have the rest of the day free to enjoy this vibrant city, exploring the historic neighborhoods and enjoying the cafe culture of Buenos Aires.

In the evening you will be picked up from your hotel (shared service) and driven to one of Buenos Aires’ most emblematic cultural highlight’s; a dinner and tango show offering a spectacular demonstration of the finest local dancing, accompanied by delicious Argentine cuisine and all the malbec you’ll like.

Six kilometers of wild trail will give you a chance to witness the native plant life and animal life of the channel, as well as let you discover the remnants of the ancient dwellers of the area: the Yamana people. After three hours, we will reach Roca Lake, where lunch will be ready. After a full home-cooked picnic meal, we will start canoeing along Lapataia River, which will take us to Lapataia Bay on the Beagle Channel, precisely where the Pan-American Highway and National Highway #3 come to an end. After this, we will return to Ushuaia.
