Experience remote areas of Antarctica in late summer

  • 18-day Antarctic Circle expedition starting in Buenos Aires before we sail from Ushuaia to Antarctica, to see spectacular wildlife like whales, sea lions and penguins.

  • Join breathtaking landings, expedition boat cruising and unforgettable hikes. We'll attempt to sail south of the Antarctic Circle and visit rarely-seen Marguerite Bay.

Sail beyond 66°33' South

After a night in Buenos Aires, we fly to Ushuaia to board hybrid-powered MS Fridtjof Nansen and cruise south of the Antarctic Circle. Along the way, you'll encounter awe-inspiring icebergs, majestic sunsets, unique wildlife and elemental wilderness on an expedition of a lifetime.

The spirit of exploration

Nature sets our itinerary. The late summer season is the best time for whale-watching and to see young penguins growing their plumage. We’ll bring you ashore in Antarctica and take you out expedition boat cruising or kayaking every chance we get.
