Discovering the 7th Continent
Discover the world’s 7th continent, over 10 phenomenal days, aboard an ice-strengthened expedition ship made for the extremes: if you’ve ever dreamt of travelling like an old-world explorer, then this amazing journey is tailor-made for your adventurous spirit. A short, sweet but action-packed adventure to the far south, this 7th Continent Discovery jaunt is chock-full of exceptional adventure, wilderness and wildlife-spotting. You can be on the lookout for migrating whales from the moment you cast off across the Drake Passage from Ushuaia, expectantly waiting until the first moment you can set your feet ashore.
The South Shetland Islands will welcome you with open arms, the distinctive cache of penguin rookeries and seal colonies putting on a welcoming show like nowhere else on earth. On this journey, you’ll have three full days of on-shore expeditions both on the South Shetlands and on the Antarctic Peninsula itself, squeezing in as much action as possible – meeting the unique creatures who call this place home during the summer. For the avid photographer, the wildlife lover and the traveller who’s passionate about pristine and dramatic wilderness, this Antarctica tour is ideal and really brings home the point that even just 10 days’ exploration can make for a lifechanging experience – as long as they’re spent discovering Antarctica.
*Available on 10, 11 and 12-day itineraries* Prices will change depending on duration.
