2024.25 Epic Antarctica BA

Final Day and Departure

Included Hotel Accommodations

If your plans take you onward in South America, please check your flight schedule to confirm your connection before booking. Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, you may need to transfer from the international airport (EZE) to the domestic airport, Jorge Newbery (also known as Aeroparque, AEP), which is located about a one-hour drive away in normal traffic conditions. If you must transfer between airports on the final day of the voyage, you can choose to use the efficient airport shuttle service, Manuel Tienda León, or take a remis (a pre-paid taxi booked inside the airport). If you prefer, your Polar Travel Adviser can also arrange for a private transfer. As traffic can add time to the commute, we recommend that you allow at least five hours between flights arriving and departing from the different airports in Buenos Aires to allow for transit, check- in, and security clearance. For the absolute safest travel plans, we recommend that you book an extra hotel night in Buenos Aires between flights.

DISEMBARKATION IN USHUAIA The ship is scheduled to arrive back at the pier in Ushuaia between 7 am and 8 am. After breakfast you will bid farewell to your Expedition Team before completing your disembarkation. This process takes approximately one hour. After disembarkation, the mandatory Buenos Aires hotel and transfer package includes a short tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park before transferring to the airport for our return charter flight to Buenos Aires. DEPARTING FROM BUENOS AIRES Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, you may be able to connect directly with your homeward flight, as we will land at Ministro Pistarini International Airport (also known as Ezeiza International Airport, EZE) at 5 pm. Please be sure to allow at least three hours between our charter arrival and your international departure. We recommend that you do not book departing flights from the international airport before 9 pm.

Your included accommodation begins on Day 1 of your itinerary. The specific hotel will be indicated on your final voyage confirmation. If you are arriving prior to Day 1 of your expedition or are staying after the disembarkation day and would like help booking a pre- or post-stay, please contact your preferred travel agent or Quark Expeditions for hotel options. As accommodation space is limited, you are encouraged to request any extra nights as early as possible. Arrival and Departure Transfers BUENOS AIRES AIRPORT TRANSFERS Arrival and departure transfers in Buenos Aires are not included; however, a Polar Travel Adviser can arrange them for you. We request that you provide your flight details to Quark Expeditions at least 30 days prior to traveling.

PLEASE NOTE Weather conditions may occasionally delay our arrival, and airline schedule changes have also been known to occur in Argentina. Booking flexible tickets is always encouraged, as we cannot be held responsible for delays due to unforeseen circumstances.
