Crossing the Antarctic Circle at the 66th southern parallel feels like you are entering another realm and a different world, awakening your inner explorer. This seldom-navigated area features narrow channels that bring you closer to ice floes, snow-capped peaks, and stunning icebergs, creating picture-perfect scenes you'll want to last forever. On this expedition, you'll explore the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands on a 12-day journey with Atlas Ocean Voyages. In November, watch for young elephant seals returning to land. December sees blue petrels gliding overhead along the Drake Passage. January is prime time for penguin hatching onshore, with waters teeming with orcas and humpback whales. February brings an abundance of fur seals, while in March, you'll witness cormorant chicks learning to fly.
