Advice/thoughts on a Gap trip to Antarctica? Please :)

Jump to last reply

I'm just starting to put together a trip for myself to Antarctica next December over Christmas and New Years and any thoughts/advice would be highly appreciated. :)

A trip that looks to meet my needs (must be over Christmas and New Years so I get 3 days of holiday time to extend my trip, and has to be as budget friendly as possible) is the Quest for the Antarctic Circle trip through G Adventures (formerly Gap). gadventures.com/trips/… I'll be traveling solo and plan to reserve a berth in a triple or quad cabin.

Figuring out flights from my little regional airport is always fun. :) The best way I've found thus far is leaving home on 12/19, spending the night of 12/20 in Buenos Aires and then proceeding to Ushuaia on 12/21, arriving in the early afternoon. The cruise is set to leave port at 4pm on 12/22. I'm tempted to just book the flights even though it's crazy early. I kind of doubt that they'll go much lower than what they are currently ($1,700 for the main flights and $458 for the BA-USH flights) and I'm tied very tightly into a specific schedule.

Any thoughts on leaving Buenos Aires from EZE vs AEP? The flights on 12/21 are the same price and very similar times. My flight will get into BA around 3:30 pm and I'll leave around 9am. I think most sights would be closed before I got there but if I stay near AEP I can at least walk around the area a bit in the evening. Thoughts?

I just don't want to do something boneheaded because I didn't stop to ask for ideas. :) Thanks for any suggestions!
