ACTIVITIES

This expedition transports you to a land that has risen from its winter slumber. Curious penguins are nesting, and majestic whales are returning. Melting sea ice creates highways of water, inviting travelers with a sense of adventure to step off the beaten track and explore the world’s most remote, unspoiled and wildest continent.

Sail through landscapes of blue and white hues peppered with icebergs. You might experience an overwhelming silence broken only by the splash of a breaching humpback whale, approach an ice floe as a resting leopard seal raises its head in curiosity, or become surrounded by a bounty of penguins on snow-capped islands. The highlights are endless, the adventure exhilarating and the memories eternal.
