2025.26 Essential Patagonia

Arrival and Departure Details, and International Flight Planning

As you prepare for your journey, you may be interested in your arrival and departure details. Since international air transportation is not included in the cost of your expedition, you have some flexibility in planning your flights.

PLEASE NOTE Luggage will be limited to one checked luggage and one cabin baggage on the flights between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia, and between Punta Arenas and Santiago. Luggage weight restrictions will be confirmed in your final documents received 30 days prior to your trip. There is NO option to store excess luggage as you’ll embark and disembark in different cities/ countries. Additionally, there is NO option to pay for additional luggage. Please be mindful of these restrictions when packing for your voyage.


Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, you will make your way to the included group hotel. A presentation room will be open from 12 pm to 8 pm for luggage weighing and tagging. A Quark Expeditions representative will be available to answer your questions and give information about the next day's flight and ship embarkation. After an early breakfast the following morning, your group will transfer to the airport and board our private charter flight to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. DAY 2 — USHUAIA AND EMBARKATION In Ushuaia your mandatory transfer package will provide some free time to explore this quaint port town, and also (when flight schedules allow) a tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Note: The tour (if available) may take place on either the embarkation or disembarkation day.

We will transfer the group to the ship for embarkation around 4 pm.
