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.

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