What One Can Expect From Antarctic Cruises From Ushuaia

By Daphne Bowen

If one would want to have a fun filled vacation that combines adventure as well as relaxation, then he should go to Ushuaia. In Ushuaia, one can have a fun filled relaxing vacation wherein he can enjoy the ambiance and the scenery. The after that, he may embark on an adventure on one of the antarctic cruises from Ushuaia to the icy regions of Antarctica.

Now before going to the cruise, first take a look at the beautiful resort town found in Argentina. Now this is one of the towns in Argentina that would have a lot of nature to show to the tourists and a lot of beautiful infrastructure. The town would give an old town feel to it like one has stepped back in time.

Now in the town would be the Ushuaia harbor which is the start of the journey all the way to the Antarctic regions. The harbor would have all the cruise ships there that would be sailing all the way to the frosty ice lands. Some of the places in the region that people can be visiting would be the South Orkney Islands or the Shetland Islands.

Of course only small ships are now allowed to go into this land because of some regulations set by the tourism board because of accidents of big ships. So most ships would only house two hundred tourists at a time and would most likely not land anywhere in the continent. The ships will probably just go around the place to show people what the area looks like.

Now if one is a first timer in this type of cruise, then he will have to expect there not to be much scenery. The areas here are not at all touched by modern civilization as the area is way too harsh for people to live in. Of course there are still a lot of interesting things to see here like the ice caverns or the ice structures that one can find here.

Now if one would go further into the area, he will see a lot of wildlife as well. There are in fact, a lot of interesting species of whales here that have evolved a bit due to adaptation to the land. Now there are also a lot of walruses and different species of seals that may be found here.

Other animals that can be found here would also be the polar bears that one may often see on television shows. There would also be a horde of penguins that may be seen marching around the icy ground of the region. Now aside from animals, there are also a few structures there like the huts and some igloos too that the tourists may take pictures of and show to their friends.

So basically those are some of the things that one may see when he would go on this type of cruise. If one is into adventure into the unknown places, then this is the type of vacation for him. There are so many places in here to explore that have been left untouched by the outside world.
