Enquire About In the Wake of Scott and Shackleton: Ross Sea Antarctica by Heritage

When Do You Want To Go?

A 30-day itinerary that explores the Ross Sea region of Antarctica – one of the most remote places in the world, and one of the most fascinating parts of the Great White Continent.
 
The Ross Sea – usually filled with impenetrable pack ice – is only navigable two months of the year during austral summer, meaning that few people have ever ventured this far.  It has long been an area of interest for explorers however, and some fascinating relics remain from early explorations, such as Robert Falcon Scott's in 1901-04 and Ernest Shackleton's in 1907-09.
 
You’ll embark the ship in Port of Bluff in New Zealand and set sail on your adventure, visiting many wonderful places, including The Snares and Auckland Islands, before arriving at the Frozen Continent and being awe-struck by its formidable landscapes and plethora of incredible wildlife, including large colonies of Adelie penguins.
 


Highlights

  • Reach the majestic wonder of the Ross Sea – the very heart of Antarctica
  • Explore New Zealand’s Auckland Islands, characterised by imposing towering cliffs and sea stacks
  • Visit the remote and rocky Macquarie Island
