Emperor Penguins of Antarctica - expedition cruise to the Weddell Sea

Small-Ship Cruise



days from


Visiting the Emperor Penguins near Snow Hill Island in the Weddell Sea is unlike any expedition cruise to Antarctica. Using helicopters we will get you within striking distance of the rookery. During the voyage you will of course also see plenty of other wildlife, including Adélie and Gentoo penguins, and marvel at the stunning scenery.
