Buenos Aires - Full Day Sightseeing Tour - 7 hours
Meet your local guide at local pier and start with your visit. 
Explore some of the most recognizable landmarks in Buenos Aires. Find out about the history and culture of this city, as you take in some of the most significant spots.
Start at the most important square in the country: Plaza de Mayo. The country was founded here in 1580, and today the most important governmental buildings are located here including Casa Rosada (Government House), Cabildo (City Hall) and Catedral Metropolitana (Metropolitan Cathedral). Government Palace opens to visitors if you're keen on taking a look inside.
Continue to the cobblestoned streets of San Telmo neighborhood, where the original porteños (Buenos Aires residents) settled in the early days. The next stop-off is picturesque La Boca, home to Caminito, perhaps the city's most photographed area thanks to its corrugated iron and brightly-colored houses. This block houses one of the few outdoor museums in the world, where artists exhibit works related to the influence of mainly Italian citizens who arrived at this port at the end of the 19th century. Also stop by at the famous Bombonera stadium, home to legendary football soccer giants Boca Juniors, whose colors of blue and yellow adorn most of the houses and stores in this barrio.

Antarctica

Antarctica 02/09/2023

With long hours of daylight at this time of year, we have ample opportunity to explore the Antarctic Peninsula and the surrounding islands. In keeping with the nature of an expedition, the schedule is flexible so that we can take advantage of the unexpected—watching whales at play off the bow, taking an after-dinner Zodiac cruise, or heading out on an unplanned excursion. We anticipate offering opportunities each day to hike, kayak among the ice floes, and experience close encounters with wildlife. You may have the thrill of watching our powerful ship crunch through the pack ice, or step ashore to thousands of Adélie and gentoo penguins. You'll learn how climate change affects the penguin populations, and how best to capture images of penguins from a National Geographic photographer. Back aboard, our undersea specialist may present video from that day's dive or show rare images taken up to 1,000 feet below the surface using our ROV. Our expert staff will craft an expedition where you will learn, see, and experience more. (B,L,D),

Antarctica

Antarctica 02/10/2023

Ice! It's probably the very first thing most people think about when the topic of Antarctica comes up, and once you're here it never disappoints. From icebergs the size of islands to the fragile, nearly invisible layers glistening on the surface where the sea has just begun to freeze, from near-vertical glaciers pouring down the slopes of every mountain to the endless landscapes of sea ice, frozen ocean stretching to the horizon in every direction, ice defines the Antarctic. You'll get to know it up close and personal, hiking, kayaking, and cruising in the Zodiacs through this frozen world. (B,L,D),

Antarctica 02/11/2023

Our sturdy Zodiac landing craft are really the heart and soul of our explorations in the Antarctic. These tough, stable little motorized boats maneuver easily through ice-choked waters, getting us ashore safely in even the most remote and challenging locations. And simply cruising in the Zodiacs is just as much fun. What's around the next corner? A leopard seal relaxing on an ice floe or a chance to photograph an exquisite arched iceberg that no one has ever seen before? We never know until we get there, but it's always a thrill. (B,L,D),

Antarctica 02/12/2023

Penguins, without any doubt, are the most popular residents of Antarctica, and we have many chances to get to know them well. Their colonies are almost always close to the beach, so it's very easy to get great photos. In the short Antarctic summer, these amazing birds are always busy with the many tasks of breeding and raising their chicks, so every month brings something new. In November the adults are squabbling over the pebbles they use to build their nests. By late December, the first chicks are tucked in under their parents, peeping out at the world. And in February, the chicks have left their nests and are very active, learning to swim and getting ready to fend for themselves. (B,L,D),

Antarctica 02/13/2023

Everywhere we go in the Antarctic we're surrounded by opportunities to capture uniquely beautiful images with our cameras. Whether we are cruising past spectacular glaciers in the ship, getting close to seals in the Zodiacs, or hiking around the penguin colonies, we are always in the company of an expert National Geographic photographer and a Lindblad photo instructor who share what they see and help us to perfect both the art and the technique of our own photography. The impossibly gorgeous blue in the heart of an iceberg, a penguin tenderly feeding its tiny chick, or a glorious sunset over frozen ocean, shots like these surround us every day. Learning to capture these perfect moments is both a wonderful challenge and a huge thrill. (B,L,D),

Really exploring Antarctica also means simply relaxing and watching while our ship cruises through some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth. Grab a cup of cocoa and a comfortable seat in the Observation Lounge or visit the officers on the Bridge, bundle up and climb all the way up to the Monkey Deck for a really panoramic view, or just kick back in your cabin and watch for seals on ice or whales blowing in the distance. We make transits of world-famous passages like the Lemaire Channel and Antarctic Sound and go ashore on the continent itself, but we also visit equally amazing islands and places that you've never heard of, yet!

Main Dining Room

Main Dining Room
The multi-windowed main Dining Room is a casual and relaxing place. There's no assigned seating to allow for free mingling - and configurations from tables for two to banquettes and a Captain's Table that seats twelve. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style, while dinner is served.

Bistro Bar

Bistro Bar
Choose to dine in the Bistro Bar whenever you prefer, or drop by for a cappucino or a latté, or a drink in the evening - especially when a gifted player is seated at the piano.
