WHY CHOOSE THIS CRUISE?

  • This 15 day in-depth voyage takes you further south than most of the Antarctic Cruises: venturing past the Antarctic Circle.

  • You will have the possibility to step foot on the great white continent to experience some of the most unique wildlife and inspiring scenery in the world.

  • Few travellers have ventured this far south, but with our fully equipped ice-strengthened vessel and hopefully favourable sea conditions we can access many remote locations that other ships cannot reach.

  • On this particular voyage, we have additional days set aside to push even further south in our attempt to explore the landscape around the Antarctic Circle which is especially desolate. The weather here is particularly wild, and the waters are full of constantly shifting ice.

  • The expedition team will assist with your Antarctic experience. They will provide you with insights on everything Antarctic - from the history and geology, to the incredible wildlife.

Sustainability

As a member of IAATO we follow guidelines appointed by the Antarctic Treaty System to go above and beyond in support of minimizing negative impacts on this pristine landscape. We also encourage clients to look to book pre-and post- accommodation with us, where local businesses will be supported. Our clients also receive restaurant recommendations which support locally owned restaurants

We carefully select all ships we work with and choose smaller sized vessels to create less impact. We use a highly regulated, licensed vessel which is well equipped to operate in the Antarctic’s delicate ecosystem. We view the voyage to the Antarctic as an expedition, not a sightseeing trip. Smaller boats such as ours can navigate narrow waterways and are far less polluting than the larger ships in Antarctic waters. By carrying less passengers, we have far less waste. The waste is carried back to the home port to allow for environmentally conscious waste management and disposal.
