EXPEDITION IN BRIEF

Not only does this voyage include a more 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.

Throughout this voyage, not only will you see icebergs but also sea ice.
