Per the Antarctica Protocols released by the Argentine government, all incoming Antarctic visitors are advised to travel to Ushuaia in a “bubble”. To make this as easy as possible for you, we will add a Charter flight package to all bookings at a cost of $615/pp. This means you only need to get yourself to Buenos Aires where you will join the Polar Latitudes bubble. If you arrive into Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) on the scheduled departure date for your voyage, we will transfer you to the Alvear Art Hotel where you will be tested before dinner and 1 overnight stay. Your flight should land no later than 2PM* to allow for time to get through customs, transfer to the hotel, and get tested with enough time for tests to be processed. All testing must be completed prior to 5pm local time. The following morning, after breakfast at the hotel, we will transfer you to the airport in Buenos Aires for the group charter flight.
Should you choose to arrive earlier than the scheduled departure date for your voyage, you will have until 5PM on the date of departure to meet the group at the Alvear Art Hotel where you will be tested by our medical staff and join the bubble. ALL TESTING MUST BE COMPLETED BY 5PM.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the charter flight arrangements, we will no longer be spending 2 nights in Ushuaia, but will instead spend 1 night in Buenos Aires prior to our charter flight, and then head straight to the ship, with a lunch in Ushuaia before embarkation. If you booked your voyage prior to Sept 29, 2021, you will need to arrive in Buenos Aires one day later than originally scheduled. Published departure dates on our website reflect this change as of that date.
