Expeditions Online has just posted details of a new itinerary combining the Antarctic Peninsula with the remote and ice-bound Weddell Sea region. 

The Weddell Sea resonates with the ill-fated yet heroic expedition of the great British polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. His ship, the Endurance was trapped in the ice here in 1915 and the story of the men's survival is one of the greatest in polar exploration. The 12-day expedition from Ushuaia in Argentina is priced from US$5750. 

The 84 passenger ice-strengthened polar vessel M/V Ushuaia features inflatable landing craft for landings and wildlife viewing opportunities. The expert captain, officers and crew are highly experienced in Antarctic navigation and the specialist team of international expedition leaders and lecturers are all extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, helpful and dedicated to the protection of the environment.
