CHRISTMAS IN ANTARCTICA, 17 – 28 DECEMBER 2017
Are you like Bing Crosby and dreaming of a White Christmas? This is your trip, the only place with a white Christmas in the middle of summer. Imagine standing on deck sipping eggnog as snowflakes gently fall, then feasting on Christmas dinner surrounded by soaring snow covered peaks in the most pristine landscape. Walk in a winter wonderland along beaches crowded with curious penguins, and glide sleigh like through rarely visited waterways as whales feed nearby.
MARINE MAMMALS, 22 MARCH 2018 – 02 APRIL 2018
Late season is bustling with activity so this trip is focused on understanding and interacting with the amazing whales, seals (and penguins) of Antarctica. This is when whales are their most relaxed and curious, so we have several world renowned marine mammal specialists aboard to educate us, and you can and even help with some of their research. This is also the perfect time for incredible Antarctic sunrises and sunsets. Ask Rose about it, as she checked it out in 2015.
