Ross Sea & East Antarctica
Antarctic trips to the 'other side' of Antarctica!
Travelling to East Antarctica or the Ross Sea is both longer and more expensive than the Antarctic Peninsula due to the greater distance and ice conditions. This spectacular region is the southern-most coastline in the world and the most fascinating area from a historical perspective. Historic huts from heroic explorers such as Shackleton and Scott are some of the greatest highlights and you can visit McMurdo Station. Huge mountains dominate the coastline and large breeding colonies of Adelie and Emperor penguins make for incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. Along the way south and north from New Zealand or Tasmania you will also have the chance to visit the sub-Antarctic island paradises of Macquarie, Campbell and the Auckland Islands.
