Antarctica is synonymous with indelible, extraordinary experiences. An expedition to the 7th continent is buoyed by whales, the rush of calving glaciers and the animated company of penguins!
Write your own enviable history by navigating the famed Drake Passage like the legendary explorers of the past aboard the luxe polar-class 128-passenger Ocean Adventurer (it has Rolls-Royce engines!). Explore the surreal treeless landscape by Zodiac and on foot–the biodiversity above and below is enormous!
Expect up close and personal encounters with wildlife (the surprises are at every turn) and equally balanced time of quiet reflection in the unforgettable embrace of the frozen frontier. Mingle, tingle. Meditate, celebrate.
Throughout this utopian voyage, the polymath polar Expedition Team will present riveting workshops on wildlife behavior, marine biology, geology, glaciology, ornithology and Antarctic history. The beauty of this trip is that it’s free-form, allowing you to totally customize and curate your perfect adventure with the options that best suit your curiosities and passions. You can choose to kayak in the still sanctuaries of the inlets or keep your neck on swivel with binoculars or a wide lens attached to your smiling face.
This unforgettable chapter of your life will have its very own soundtrack and precious memory reel. There are countless reasons to visit the 7th continent but for starters: chinstrap, Adélie and gentoo penguins; humpbacks, minkes and orcas and Weddell, fur, crabeater and leopard seals! Bird nerd alert: You can finally tick off that albatross box and remove the albatross from around your neck!
Take the polar plunge, chill out and spoil all your senses with a destination that delivers 10 days of suspended bewilderment and non-stop beauty.
