For an entire month during spring, YPT will be venturing on our Grand South Atlantic cruise, from Ushuaia in Argentina, via the South Georgia Islands, to Tristan da Cunha, Saint Helena, Ascension Island and Cape Verde. Pack that book you have been meaning to read for ages, bring your camera, and settle back to experience some of the most isolated and remote places in the world!
Setting sail from Tierra del Fuego, the ‘Land of Fire’ on the archipelago at the tip of South America where the Andes curl east, this is the end of the world. The tour will meet up in Ushuaia, Argentina, before heading to board the m/v Hondius.
In South Georgia we’ll see an abandoned whaling station and Shackleton’s grave. We’ll circumnavigate the island of Tristan da Cunha and its outlying Nightingale Island and Inaccessible Island. We’ll explore Saint Helena, the final place of exile and death of Napoleon Bonaparte, at which point an island of 4000 people will feel like proper civilisation to us! Finally, we will end our cruise in the Republic of Cabo Verde, after having sailed the full south Atlantic to above the equator.
On this trip you will experience everything from the cold Antarctic seas to the tropics, snapping photos in penguin colonies in South Georgia, watching albatrosses control the skies, spotting whales and maybe even dolphins tailing our ship, to see green turtles on the beaches and tropical fish in the seas off Saint Helena.
On a trip like this, we cannot guarantee the itinerary – it will depend on the weather and the condition of the ice and seas. The final say is with the captain of the ship and the professional team onboard.
