Cheap Antarctica cruise... Is there such a thing?

by sezzy100

Hi all,

I am traveling around South America this year and I only have the funds do experience either Galapagos Islands or Antarctica.

If anyone has done both, can you suggest which would you recommend more...?

I would like to do the cheapest Antarctica cruise I can find (but still quality) Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

Any advice on Antarctica cruises is welcome as I don't know much about them.

Cheers

the cheapest way to go on an antarctica cruise is to go to Ushuaia in the early or late season and wait to find availability on a boat leaving from there. you can save quite a bit because the boats would prefer to fill up spaces if they are not full. the only downfall is that you may have to give yourself several days or more to wait for a space. most boats depart on the same day of the week.

Hello,
I went on an Antarctic Cruise with Quark Expeditions in Nov. 2005. I have not been to the Galapagos though. The Antarctic is an amazing place to see and experience, but I'm sure the Galapagos are as well. Depending on what time of year you are traveling, the Antarctic season is from November to feb or march? We got the cheapest cabin on our cruise, a triple. We booked well in advance for it, as these cabins tend to go quick. This also depends on WHERE you plan to travel in South America, as the Antarctic cruises tend to depart from Ushuaia - a bit out of the way for other areas. Ushuaia is a great mountian/channel city. Easy to walk around or they have taxis. There is a great hike up to the Martial Glacier just a few miles outside of town or you can take a day tour to Tierra del Fuego Park or over the Andes to the lakes.
Depending on your sea legs, the Drake Passage is rough! My sister and i had the sea sickness patches which worked. It mostly depends on the weather and scenery that you are seeking. If you are going to be in Southern Chile or Argentina, I would consider the Antarctic, mostly b.c you are already down there, but also b/c Ecuador is maybe a bit easier to fly to on another trip in the future?
I have some pics and tips for Antarctica on my travel pages or you can ask me more questions on it if you'd like.
Good Luck

None of the Antarctic cruises are cheap, they all charge top dollar. There is this company http://www.australis.com/EN/itinerarios.php
it is not a cruise to the Antarctic but does offer a spectacular trip around the cape. Or for a really cheapee just take the ferry that runs between Chile and Argentina.

Otherwise be happy with the Galapagos :)

Travel Tips for Ushuaia

Colors of summer

by Sharrie

Lupins... I love them.
Only found in colder parts of the world like Alaska, Iceland, Ushuaia & perhaps New Zealand.

Whenever I see lupins, I associated them with the mountains. I am not sure if there is any correlation but that's what came to mind.
& that in itself is a very good feeling. Love the mountains. :-)

In this case, lupins practically brighten up Ushuaia. I saw them all over the streets of Ushuaia. I think they make an otherwise "cold" place warm (the temperature can be very chilly here, not the people though).

Weather in Ushuaia

by DSwede

Its average winter temp is 1C, while its summer average is 9C, so it is rather moderate in temperature, but has the possibility for extreme swings.

Hiking boots for wet/muddy grounds are advised. Waterproof jackets are too.

Flights to Antarctica

by klmousseau

I had read somewhere before about flights from Ushuaia to the Antarctic Peninsula, but I can't seem to find that same web page. I do remember the flight being around $1800 USD
I did manage to find the following web page though:

The Yamana Museum

by galy

A small and simple museum commemorates the Yamana people who lived in this region, and gave the town it's name. Ushuaia simply meant "bay penetrating westwards" or "bay towards the end " in Yamana native's language.
When the first Europeans arrived, they found an archipelago inhabited by about 10.000 natives who belonged to different groups: selk'nam and manek'enk (pedestrian nomad) and yamana and alakaluf (canoeist nomad). Fifty years later there were just 350 of them.
The reasons of their disappearance are probably the combination of few reasons
-the overexploitation of marine mammals, that deprived them of their main source of feeding.
-the contagion of plagues and diseases brought by white man.
-their confinement in closed communities.
-the expropriation of their lands due to the introduction of sheep.
In my opinion, it's important to visit this museum, in honor of those distinct tribes.
At the museum, they?ll stamp your passport with the ?DIN DEL MUNDO? stamp.

On the waterfront

by kyoub about Kuar

There are two things that make this restaurant very special and those are the view and the fact that they start serving dinner at 6:30pm.
It is right on the water, north of the city.
The food and service are great also.
The name is KUAR
