Antartica & South America

Home to Index page for

This cruise was on the Rotterdam (Holland America). It started in Rio andwent south to Antartica - around the islands there and thru channels. We saw a lot of ice and snowy mountains. See the map below for the exact route. One of the highlights was seeing penguins in Ushuaia. Ushuaia is the city that is the farthest south in the world.  This trip was over the Christmas and New Years holidays, so it was a fun time. Cold tho - about 33 degrees and windy in Antartica - and this was their summer. We finished in Santiago, Chile where it was a hot 90 degrees. The background on this page is from a photo of a glacier.
