Looking for a concentrated expedition cruise that’s all about the frozen continent? This is it. Together with us, you’ll explore the Antarctic Peninsula on an adventure like no other

Get ready for a summer expedition cruise of remote wilderness and rare wildlife that is all about the unique highlights of Antarctica

Tango and the Drake Passage  

Spend a night in the Argentine capital, the place where tango was invented and still celebrated in bars across the city. The next day, you’ll fly to Ushuaia and board your hybrid-powered ship MS Roald Amundsen which will sail south into the Drake Passage towards Antarctica. That’s when we enter expedition mode for real, allowing sea ice and local weather to determine our agenda on any given day. But with decades of experience sailing here and more than 20 possible landing spots in the Antarctic Peninsula, we always bring you the best sites available at the time.   

The wonders of Antarctica  

It’s summer when you get to Antarctica. The temperature is milder and the five days you spend here among the icebergs and glaciers will seem longer. Arriving in January, you’ll enjoy the sight of colonies of thousands of penguins with their adorable chicks while the March cruise is the best time for seeing whales. Our Expedition Team will take you ice-cruising and on landings to get you even closer to the impressive scenery, and you may even get the chance to go kayaking among the icebergs on an optional activity.
