Spend Winter Session on the Antarctic Ice, in the Mountains of Patagonia and the ranches of Argentina. The first leg of this adventure will take place in and around Ushuaia, a small town at the base of Argentina bordering Patagonia. You’ll trek into the Patagonia region, explore the National Parks and visit cattle and sheep ranches.
You’ll then board an ice-class scientific exploration ship, see the region's wildlife – penguins, seals and whales, hike and camp overnight on the polar ice and take small-boat excursions from the ship to shore. While on the ship, you'll meet its Russian crew as well as the scientists and regional experts who are frequently aboard. You'll hear them speak on zoology, ocean science, polar history and ornithology. It’s not as cold as you think – usually 25-40 degrees.
Finally, you’ll spend the remainder of the program on historic Ranches outside of Buenos Aries.
