Argentina, the Falkland Islands,
South Georgia & Antarctica

6th November - 4th December 2018

An expedition aboard one of our favourite ships, the Island Sky


Our expedition cruise began in Puerto Madryn, an Argentinian town with strong Welsh connections in the north of Patagonia, and finished nineteen days later in Ushuaia, widely considered to be the southernmost city in the world.

One of my best memories - this photo was taken in the Neumayer Channel, Antarctica.

Below is an extract from the brochure, which helped to sell the trip to Bruce (not that he needed too much help in that regard!).


Before beginning the expedition, however, we had to get to Argentina. This was taken in the departure lounge at Heathrow...

...and then, on the plane, as we prepared to take off.

We didn't fly to Argentina simply to join a ship. We did a fair amount of other sightseeing too, including spending time in the city of Buenos Aires, from where we made a special trip, with twenty two others, to the magnificent Iguazu Falls. After that, we were joined by a further seventy six people for a short stay in northern Patagonia, before we all embarked the ship. Later, after the cruise, we also saw some highlights of southern Patagonia, before returning home via Buenos Aires.
