Not only does this expedition include the most in-depth exploration of the Antarctic Peninsula, but it also offers the opportunity to venture farther south across the Antarctic Circle. As you head toward a milestone that few travellers reach, you’ll feel as if you’re in a world without borders, sailing across an endless stretch of sea dotted with ice.
Dramatic ice formations will ignite your imagination as you search the landscape for the wildlife that calls it home. Whether it’s humpback whales alongside the ship, a leopard seal diving beneath your Zodiac, penguins sliding off an iceberg, or a giant petrel soaring above cracking sea ice, you’ll experience a sensory overload in Antarctica.
These trips usually depart from Ushuaia or Punta Arenas, and they are a good option for those who want to explore the Antarctic Peninsula in depth, venturing to less frequented latitudes. Not only will you see icebergs but also sea ice.
Depending on the itinerary, the length of these trips are approximately 13 days, unless also visiting South Georgia and the Falkands where the total trip can reach 23 days.
