The "Antarctica Classic In Depth" tour starts from and ends in Ushuaia. The "Antarctica Classic In Depth" tour is a photography trip that takes 13 days taking you through Ushuaia, Ushuaia, South Shetland Islands and Drake Passage in Antarctica and Argentina. This is a self-guided group tour that includes accommodation, meals and others.

Like our "Antarctica Classic" tour, this 13-day expedition introduces you to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, but adds on two additional days to better explore its majesty. Part of the reward of arriving in Antarctica is the challenge of negotiating the Drake Passage — and the G Expedition will bring you there safely. Encounter leopard seals lazing on ice floes and immense rookeries of penguins surrounded by towering glaciers. The G Expedition’s expert guides and lecturers offer knowledge and insight that really bring the nature and history of the region to life, creating the adventure of a lifetime.
