Antarctic Adventure

15 days from £6,599 per person

A place unlike anywhere else, the white wilderness and sheer untouched grandeur of Antarctica will leave you speechless. Aside from its surrealistic landscape, the Antarctic Peninsula is rich in wildlife, with more types of penguin than anywhere else on earth - you may spot young gentoo and chinstrap penguins chasing their parents! Look for whales and countless sea birds, plus Weddell and leopard seals hauled out on icebergs or feeding on the vast supplies of krill and squid, as you cruise through the Great White Continent. Your experience will be nothing less than breathtaking.

MS Fridtjof Nansen

Day 4 - 5 - Crossing the Drake Passage

We spend two days crossing the Drake Passage (named after Sir Francis Drake), which connects the southern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Here the warm waters from the north meet the cold, less-salty waters from the south, making the ocean particularly rich in nutrients and forming the basis of the unique marine life in the region. Once we have crossed the Antarctic Convergence, we transition to the crisp, colder air and mighty icebergs begin to appear on the horizon. Breathtaking wildlife, including penguins and possibly magnificent whales may soon be spotted.

MS Fridtjof Nansen

Day 6 - 10 - Antarctica

Spend five astounding days in one of the most remote places on earth, Antarctica. During this time we step ashore many times to discover breathtaking scenery, get close to native wildlife including penguins, whales and seals, experience walking on the endless glistening snow and ice, visit old whaling stations and join adventurous activities including kayaking and hiking. Weather, wind, ice and local conditions will determine the exact nature of your programme and schedule. Safety is paramount and the ship’s captain will decide the final sailing itinerary during the voyage. Possible landing sites are shown as follows:
Deception Island, South Shetland Islands - A captivating volcanic island, home to a natural harbour, an abandoned whaling station and volcanically warmed sand and waters - sometimes possible to swim in!
Half Moon Island - One of the most beautiful areas of the South Shetlands, featuring majestic Antarctic scenery, this stunning island is home to a large Chinstrap penguin colony as well as Antarctic terns, Kelp gulls, Snowy sheathbills, Wilson’s storm petrels and several species of seal. Step ashore to get close to the beautiful wildlife residing here, and put your photography skills to the test.
Yankee Harbour - Arrive in this small inner harbour, to discover a large colony of Gentoo penguins estimated to consist of around 4,000 breeding pairs.
Neko Harbour - Nestled in the innermost part of Andvord Bay, Neko Harbour was discovered by the Belgian explorer Adrien de Gerlache, and is one of the places that you can place your feet on the Antarctic mainland. A mighty glacier calves here every so often and an array of wildlife including Minke whales, Gentoo penguins and leopard seals can call it home.
Paradise Bay - The bay received its name by whalers operating during the early 20th century. Magnificent glaciated mountains, ice floes, breathtaking ice cliffs and icebergs. Disembark to admire the icy scenery and discover the typical Atlantic wildlife residing here, including Gentoo penguin, crabeater seal and whale.
Wilhelmina Bay - Often named ‘Whale-mania Bay’ due to the large numbers of humpback whales spotted here, Wilhelmina Bay not only has an abundant whale population, but also outstanding scenery and peaceful waters.

MS Fridtjof Nansen

Day 11 - 12 - Crossing the Drake Passage

We continue our adventure with two days retracing our steps back across the Drake Passage.
