On 3 January 2021, ecruising’s 22-night Dramatic Wonders of Antarctica & Iguazu Falls journey commences. This extraordinary adventure from one of Australia’s leading cruise experts combines a 17-night Antarctic cruise on board the luxurious Azamara Quest topped and tailed by stays in two of South America’s most iconic destinations – Argentina’s Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls in Brazil.
This epic adventure begins in Buenos Aires, with 2 nights at Alvear Art Hotel, right in the heart of the city. Immerse yourself in the Argentinian capital, with its rich cultural history, museums, shopping and restaurant scene, and take in a half day tour of the city, plus dinner and a tango show at famed La Ventana restaurant.

On 5 January depart from Buenos Aires onboard luxurious cruise ship, Quest, for an overnight journey to Montevideo in Uruguay. Spend the day exploring Old Town (starting from Plaza Independencia) or strolling La Rambla. While visiting, be sure to try a parrillada—a local speciality of perfectly grilled meat and seafood.

Next, enjoy 3 days of pampering aboard your boutique hotel at sea before arriving in Ushuaia—a hub of outdoor adventure surrounded by waterfalls and glaciers at the southern-most tip of Argentina. From here, spend 3 incredible days cruising the breathtaking Antarctic Sound. As you drift through a world of implausibly blue icebergs, keep your eyes peeled for penguin rookeries and whales breaching the surface of the water.

Your Antarctic adventure then takes you to Elephant Island—named after the elephant seals who call its shores home. This is followed stopovers at: the Falkland Islands; Port Stanley—home of the iconic Christ Church Cathedral; and the Argentinian port of Puerto Madryn where you can explore the Punta Tombo National Reserve and snap some photos of the estimated half million penguins who live throughout this sprawling sanctuary.

Your voyage concludes back in Buenos Aires on 22 January 2021 where you will disembark for your onward flight to Brazil’s Iguazu Falls, spending the next 3 nights at the stunning Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas – the only hotel within Iguazu National Park. Visit the breathtaking Falls at dawn and the Bird Park with its colourful and exotic inhabitants, take half-day tours on each of the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of Iguazu, gather around a campfire at dusk and take part in an authentic welcome ritual with indigenous Guarani-Mbya, or simply indulge in a little ‘me time’ relaxing beside the hotel’s stunning pool, before boarding your flight home to Australia on 23 January 2021.

Departing on 3 January 2021, prices for ecruising’s 22-night Dramatic Wonders of Antarctica & Iguazu Falls journey start from $12,589 per person twin share, including all accommodation, half day Buenos Aires City Tour, a dinner and show at Buenos Aires’ La Ventanta, half day tours of both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of Iguazu Falls, return international economy class airfares from Australia, and transfers in Buenos Aires.
