Inside the Antarctic Circle beats the unbridled and capricious heart of wildest Antarctica.

This special voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula departs from Ushuaia, Argentina. Daylight grows longer and the air gets colder as we head south across the Drake Passage, accompanied by soaring albatross. Our first explorations of the White Continent are in the South Shetland Islands, historically important and rich with iconic Antarctic wildlife.

Next we visit the Gerlache Strait wh ere immense glaciers, towering mountains, and blue icebergs form a picture-perfect setting for amazing marine mammal and penguin encounters. We continue south into rarely visited territory, crossing the Antarctic Circle and exploring wherever the wind and ice will allow.

HIGHLIGHTS

ANTARCTIC WILDLIFE VIEWING

Penguins and other seabirds abound in Antarctica’s nutrient-rich seas. In the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands you can go ashore at sites where chinstrap, gentoo, and adélie penguins come together to nest in boisterous colonies. Meeting with a curious penguin chick is an unforgettable experience.

The waters of Antarctica are also home to huge concentrations of marine mammals. Pinnipeds such as crabeater, weddell, and leopard seals are often seen hauled-out on shore or reposing on ice floes. Humpback whales, minke whales, and orcas are also commonly spotted now at the height of their summer feeding frenzy.

INCREDIBLE POLAR SCENERY

The scenery in Antarctica is like nothing else on Earth. Massive, rugged, gleaming white mountains—covered on all but their sheerest faces by permanent snow and innumerable glaciers—rise from deep blue waters to form protected bays and scenic passages such as the renowned Lemaire Channel.

Floating everywhere in these pristine waterways are fragments of Antarctica’s frozen surface. From gargantuan icebergs that dwarf our ship to billowy blankets of brash ice crackling in the wake of our Zodiacs, ice is the ever-present backdrop of our voyage.

CROSSING THE ANTARCTIC CIRCLE

This special, once-per-year voyage includes extra days so we can push deep into rarely visited regions south of the Antarctic Circle. In so doing, we are following in the historic footsteps of legendary polar explorers and early scientific expeditions.

The vast, white landscapes here are both bleak and beautiful, the weather is especially wild, and the waters are full of constantly shifting sea ice and enormous tabular icebergs. This is expedition cruising at its most authentic.
