Expedition Cruise Across the Antarctic Circle

Small-Ship Cruise



days from


It is one thing to sail on an expedition cruise to the frozen world of Antarctica. It is something else altogether to go below the Antarctic Circle. Apart from the bragging rights, this trip gives you a lot more time in Antarctica than cruises that don't go this far south and takes you to places seldom visited by other travellers. More time means more glaciers, penguins, whales, seal and birds. And a journey that will be etched in your memory for the rest of your life.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

I had to remind myself to tear yourself away from my camera at times and be in the moment.  That way I made memories beyond my photographs
