Antarctica

We will take you on a once in a lifetime trip to the coldest, whitest, most peaceful and arguably most beautiful continent of our planet.
Antarctica is a remote natural masterpiece. The astonishing glaciers, the crystal-clear waters and, above all, the awe-inspiring residents create an atmosphere that is hard to be put into words, but is a miracle to be experienced.

We will sail through the majestic Beagle Channel and be greeted by the gorgeous Magellanic Penguins, observe flocks of Cormorants and glorious Sea Lion colonies.
Day 5-6
South Shetland Islands
On board inflatable Zodiac boats we will approach the most scenic bays and channels. We will have the chance to see penguin rookeries, float through whale feeding areas in the hope of catching a rare glimpse of them, and we will hear all about the exciting stories of the first adventurers who visited this frozen continent. Conditions permitting, we may visit Half Moon Island, noted for the amazing variety of bird species, or alternatively, the infamous volcanic Deception Island.
Day 3-4
Drake Passage
Today we sail towards and the Drake Passage. As the temperature starts dropping, the scenery becomes more and more unearthly and dramatic.
Day 7-9
Antartica
We will gradually head out, leaving the Archipelago behind us and entering Antarctica. We will immerse into the surreal beauty of the Paradise Harbor that is well worth its name, the picturesque Neko Harbor, the Willelmina Bay favorited by the Humpback whale, and the wildlife –filled Neumayer Channel. We may stop at an active scientific base, as well as a historic base, such as the notable Wordie House. Waddles of Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins are everywhere out here, and Weddell and Crabeater seals are often found hauled out to rest, along with predatory Leopard seals and the assertive Antarctic Fur Seal. Minke and Humpback whales are frequent visitors in the late season and Orca sightings are also common.

Leaving this singular region, we will make our way north, heading again through the Drake Passage.
