MAXIMIZE YOUR TIME EXPLORING ANTARCTICA ON THIS UNIQUE EXPEDITION.
This voyage encompasses two additional days of exploration in Antarctica without adding to the total length of the journey. We achieve this by flying back from King George Island (Antarctica) to South America at the end of the voyage, saving two days on the return sea crossing. Those two days ‘saved’ are spent exploring in Antarctica. This equals more time on shore, more time in the Zodiacs and more time spent in the company of our expert guides.
In early December, Antarctica’s snow and ice will be in pristine condition, the penguin rookeries are busy with parents guarding precious eggs and, in some locations, we witness nature at it’s very best – observing young penguin chicks emerging into the icy Antarctic world for the first time. Towering snow-covered mountains surround us, and the sea ice is starting to break up, opening even more potential landing locations.
Our full range of activities will be offered on this voyage – walks on shore, visits to wildlife colonies, Zodiac cruising amongst icebergs, visits to historic sites and possibly even a working science station. For the more adventurous, sea kayaking is a wonderful way to discover Antarctica – and if weather conditions permit – why not spend the night, camping on shore? This trip provides the best opportunity to maximize your time down ‘on the ice!’
