WELCOME TO A TRUE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME

Experience the Nomad Cruise Antarctica Expedition
AN 11 DAY JOURNEY
From South America to Antarctica - and back :)
Your journey sets sail where the world seemingly comes to an end – in Ushuaia, Argentina, acclaimed as the southernmost city on Earth. Over the next two days navigating the Drake Passage, you'll share in the same awe-inspiring experiences that once captivated the legendary polar explorers who mapped these territories, and perhaps even a fin whale spraying sea mist into the air. As we venture deeper into the Antarctic expanse, our potential stops include Danco Island, Neko Harbour, Paradise Bay, and Port Lockroy. Our voyage then continues, taking us to the volcanic landscapes of the South Shetlands and Deception Island before embarking on the return journey to South America via the Drake Passage.
The program may vary depending on ice, weather, and wildlife conditions. Flexibility is paramount for expedition cruises.GET ON BOARD
Route & Highlights
Arrive early for events
It's always recommended to arrive to the departure city a little ahead of time to meet up with other participants and start getting to know each other before we set sail.
Take a digital detox
To make the best of the experience we highly recommend to take a digital detox to fully immerse in the experience and connect with the community.
Plan to stay in South-America
After our arrival back to Ushuaia we recommend that you stick around for a while and join our reunions. This is when connections deepen and business ideas come into fruition.

We do offer shared cabins with another Nomad Cruise participant. By providing shared cabins, we can get more people on board, you can save some bucks on your ticket, plus you’ll have a friend from the very first day. You can either make a suggestion of who you would like to share your cabin with or we will choose another lovely participant of the same sex for you.

There are facilities on board to send emails and make calls via satellite connection, All costs for internet, email, or the use of the onboard cellular network (if available) are at your own expense. We faced a different situation on each of our previous trips, so it’s hard to make a general statement about the speed, so it’s better to be prepared for a very slow connection and take a holiday for the duration of the trip.
The currency used aboard the ship is the Euro, but you can also pay with USD.
During January, which is summertime, you can expect an average temperature of 1 to 2 degrees Celsius (33.8 to 35.6 degrees Fahrenheit), with some rain on occasion.
For Zodiac cruises to shore you’ll need a waterproof jacket and pants (minimum 15,000mm rating). Apart from that, our advice is to take warm, windproof, waterproof clothes that you can easily add or remove in layers. It’s best to take clothing made of wool, silk, and new synthetic fibers, all of which retain heat better than other materials.
We will provide you with an expedition manual, which will include a detailed packing list to make sure you are prepared with everything you’ll need.
The vegetation at Antarctica consists of around 350 species of mostly lichens, mosses, and algae. Various sea birds, seals, and penguins are often seen in Antarctica such as the Emperor Penguin, Adelie Penguin, Orcas, Humpback whales, Weddell Seals and Leopard seals.
In general we can encourage you to stick around in the area for a few weeks after the expedition. This gives you an excellent opportunity to build deeper connections and brainstorm potential business collaborations with those you met on board. You won’t want to miss the reunions we will organize after the cruise – they are always a ton of fun and a great way to explore yet another beautiful destination – or two! 😉
