Antarctic Circle Expedition
This Antarctic Circle Expedition cruise will see you spending 10 full days exploring Antarctica - that is more time spent exploring the magical white continent than most! Not only will you experience the highlights of the Antarctica Continent; polar landscapes, glaciers, icebergs, penguins, whales and other Antarctica wildlife...but hopefully you will cross the Antarctic Circle & to try to reach the usually secluded yet magnificent Marguerite Bay!
Fly to Buenos Aires, where your 18 day Antarctic adventure begins, soak up the local Latin American vibes in this funky city, often referred to as the Paris of South America. Join a charter flight to Ushuaia, where either the MS Fridtjof Nansen or MS Roald Amundsen (depending on departure date) will be waiting to take you to Antarctica. Both are state of the art, next generation expedition vessels, using a battery hybrid powered propulsion system. They are specifically designed to take you to remote regions like Antarctica in comfort; with an onboard science centre, 3 restaurants, gym, wellness centre, large indoor and outdoor observation decks, infinity pool and hot tubs. All cabins onboard are outside cabins and over half of them have private balconies.
There is plenty of time for landings ashore, on small boat cruises, kayaking, snowshoeing, camping, and maybe even a polar plunge.
On the Antarctic Circle Expedition, be sure to make the most of the long Antarctic summer daylight hours, a perfect time for young penguins and abundant whale life!
