EXPEDITION IN BRIEF

Towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes, massive icebergs and the option to choose your favourite activities each and every day make this voyage the perfect introduction to the white continent. In the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, we spend our days off the ship exploring by Zodiac boat, making several shore landings each day in the company of our expert guides.

By breaking into small special interest groups we discover Antarctica and its remarkable wildlife through photography, Zodiac excursions, hiking onshore, and for the more adventurous – camping and sea kayaking. Visits to historic huts and the opportunity to visit a working research station add another dimension to the voyage.

This popular 10-night expedition features many of the well-known landing sites such as Neko, Paradise and Orne Harbours’, Cuverville Island and the Errera Channel – and ice conditions permitting, we hope to transit the spectacular Lemaire Channel. A final highlight will be a visit to the beautiful South Shetland Islands. Here, we aim to visit Deception Island and other nearby locations such as Half Moon Island or Yankee Harbour. Returning to South America a final thrill will be a rounding the legendary landmark of Cape Horn. This ever popular 10-night voyage truly provides the quintessential Antarctic experience.
