Crossing the Antarctic Circle
This special, once-per-year voyage includes extra days so we can push deep into rarely visited regions south of the Antarctic Circle. In so doing, we are following in the historic footsteps of legendary polar explorers and early scientific expeditions. The vast, white landscapes here are both bleak and beautiful, the weather is especially wild, and the waters are full of constantly shifting sea ice and enormous tabular icebergs. This is expedition cruising at its most authentic.
An iconic expedition with a fantastic ship and the best of Antarctica.
