Polar Circle Quest
Travel further south than most travelers ever go - voyage across the polar circle. The land where the sun never sets in the height of summer, leaving the sun to roll around in the sky above.
This 12 day Antarctica cruise is the ultimate bucket list adventure. Embarking on our trip to Antarctica from the southernmost city of South America, the MV Ushuaia vessel creates a comfortable environment for crossing the Drake Passage and then on to the Antarctic Peninsula. As we cruise there is opportunity to engage in a series of lectures about the natural history of this incredible polar land, as well as learn about navigating the ship and of course, witness the stunning wildlife. On this Antarctic cruise delving ever more southward to the polar circle, glaciers, icebergs, picturesque inlets greet the avid explorer - and their camera! As well as incredible amounts of seabirds and penguins, seals and hopefully humpback whales. Our Antarctica cruise allows guests to make landings on Antarctic soil (or snow and ice!) and get up close to the unique inhabitants as well as visit sites of historic and scientific significance.
