The Ross Sea Antarctica
Journey into wild and remote Antarctica.
Across the Antarctic Circle and beyond to the Ross Sea, the Ross Ice Shelf, Charcot Island, Peter I Island, Bellingshausen Sea, Siple Island, Ruppert Coast ...these are truly off the beaten track destinations in Antarctica. The outstanding new luxury exploration vessel, the Le Commandant-Charcot, has been designed especially to take you to these remote polar regions. This hybrid-electric polar exploration ship powered by LNG considers the environment, and provides you with plenty of comfort at the same time, including panoramic restaurants and an indoor swimming pool.
With luck we will encounter the elusive emperor penguin. Witness other incredible Antarctic wildlife: Adelie penguins, Ross seals, crabeater seals, leopard seals, Minke whales, sea birds, plus there is plenty of time to explore on inflatable zodiacs and make shore landings. This is an outstanding adventure to the white continent.
