Experience a summer adventure south of the Antarctic Circle

  • 18-day expedition cruise from Buenos Aires to Antarctica via Cape Horn and the Drake Passage, with 11 days exploring the wonders of Antarctica.

  • With the milder summer weather, we'll aim to journey below the Antarctic Circle to the secluded and magnificent Marguerite Bay.

  • There are opportunities for whale watching, seeing young penguins, hiking, kayaking, ice-cruising, and even camping on the Antarctic ice.

Enjoy 11 days in Antarctica

Join your Expedition Team for ice-cruising activities, shore landings and fascinating lectures. You'll get close to colossal glaciers and icebergs. We'll observe Antarctic wildlife in their habitat – colonies of penguins, seals, whales and seabirds, maybe even kayaking or hiking past them.

South of the Antarctic Circle

During the Antarctic summer, new routes through the sea ice below the Antarctic Circle become possible. Aboard your hybrid-powered, ice-class expedition ship, we'll set course for Marguerite Bay and islands along the way, looking out for Adélie penguins and visiting remote research stations.
