Antarctica… the 7th Continent


A guest post by Paul Simpson

Antarctic cruises are not cheap, but if you are able to fit it into your budget, I highly recommend it!! You can get cheap deals last minute either through emailing a travel agent in Ushuaia (just google it, there are plenty around – I booked mine 3 weeks in advance) or by checking in person once in Ushuaia. I recommend booking it through an agent in advance if you can, I used Daniela at Ushuaia Turismo who was great. Last minute deals can save you >50% so it is worth doing and are generally US$4000-5000 depending on the cruise. Make sure you get a ship that does landings on the Antarctic as it would not be cool to go all the way there and not land on Antarctica as that is where all the fun is. more!
