Antarctic Classic in Depth
Antarctica is a unique world of its own and this voyage, a little longer than the Classic Antarctica trip, gives an extra two days for those that think our 11 day trip is not quite enough to explore Antarctica's wonders.
More time to encounter leopard seals and immense rookeries of several varieties of penguins, gentoo, Adelie, chinstrap... From the open deck you can witness dramatic glaciers and gaze at icebergs, make use of the long days, and enjoy every moment being in awe of nature. There will be time to land on the 7th continent, to walk and explore research stations or historic site, climb to get a view over the bay, or simply sit and be in awe of the stunning landscapes. Take a zodiac cruise or kayak through the ice, be daring and jump in for a polar plunge!
The M/S Expedition will guide you safely and comfortably through the marvels of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula while its expert tour leaders and lecturers offer knowledge and insights that will really bring the natural history to life and create an adventure you will never forget.
