Enquire About Crossing the Antarctic Circle: Southern Expedition by Quark

The most in-depth exploration of the Antarctic Peninsula, Crossing the Circle: Southern Expedition by Quark Expeditions is one of few that ventures South of the Antarctic Circle, a destination that few will reach in their lifetimes.

On this breathtaking expedition, you'll marvel at dramatic ice formations as you search the landscape for the wildlife that call this region home.

In Antarctica, you'll experience a sensory overload you have never felt before.
