Enquire About Antarctic Peninsula and Polar Circle by Albatros Expeditions

When Do You Want To Go?

On this inspiring 13-day expedition cruise, explore the Great White Continent's magnificent landscapes, glacial mountains and incredible wildlife before reaching the Antarctic Circle.

Begin your voyage with Albatros Expeditions through the calm waters of the Beagle Channel. Enter the Drake Passage, which marks the intersection of the Antarctic with the warmer Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Here the excitement builds, as Antarctica comes into view. These nutrient-rich waters lure a wealth of seabirds, albatrosses and several species of whales. Look out for seals and penguins too. Continue on to the South Shetland Islands, a pearly necklace of glistening, ice-covered islands and dormant volcanoes. Enjoy plenty of Zodiac excursions and landfalls in this area.

Continue onward to enjoy the calming silence and alluring beauty of the Antarctic mainland during hikes and Zodiac excursions. Soon after you'll cross the Antarctic Circle where the sun is up for 24-hours a day during the austral summer. Dense pack ice forbids many ordinary vessels from reaching this far south, but with the highest ice-class rating, Ocean Atlantic moves swiftly carrying you on an adventure for life.

Highlights

  • Cross the Antarctic Circle, an experience very few get in their lifetime

  • Traverse the Drake Passage, a crossing the most spirited sailors consider a lifetime achievement

  • Marvel at wildlife such as whales, sea lions, elephant seals, sea birds and penguins
