Scott & Shackleton's Antarctica Ross Sea
Sailing the Ross Sea means discovering one of the most extreme and pristine regions of Antarctica, where the cold is more intense, the ice more impressive and the scenery more spectacular. Join us on this 22 day voyage - Scott & Shackleton's Antarctica Ross Sea.
In the heart of this polar Garden of Eden, where the ice shelf turns into icebergs, you will encounter prodigious fauna, as well as surrealist landscapes, with infinite shades of blue and stunning reliefs. Antarctic petrels, Minke whales, Orcas and 5 species of seals are at home here, as are very large colonies of Adelie penguins. Follow in the footsteps of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and discover the historic huts of Scott, Shackleton & Borchgrevink. Enjoy amazing outings and shore visits in zodiac inflatables with a team of experienced naturalist guides.
During your voyage you will also discover the flora and fauna of the Sub Antarctic Islands. Be in awe of the remarkable haven for wildlife that is the Snares, Campbell Island with a stunning flora display and Macquarie Island, long celebrated as one of the wonder spots of the world, a place of great beauty and outstanding natural diversity.
This is your chance to visit the most pristine piece of ocean left on earth!
*Please note the voyage returning to Hobart is 23 days and does not visit the Snares
