Overview
Enquire About South Shetland Islands & Antarctic Peninsula by Albatros Expeditions

When Do You Want To Go?

On this classic 10-day expedition cruise to the Great White Continent experience the incredible wildlife, stunning mountain scenery and gigantic icebergs as you set sail with Albatros Expeditions.

Get close to the dramatic coastlines of this frozen, remote wilderness. Enjoy zodiac cruising and shore landings where you'll set foot on the Antarctic continent, as well as the many surrounding sub-antarctic islands, something very few have done before.

Depart Ushuaia and cross the mighty Drake Passage, en-route to the South Shetland Islands. Here you'll explore penguin rookeries, research stations and fascinating lookouts. Your ship will then continue south, deep into the inlets of Antarctica, passing the famous Gerlache Strait. On no other journey can you experience so much pristine nature and varied wildlife in so few days.

Any voyage to Antarctica is an adventure, but with a maximum capacity of 198 guests aboard Ocean Atlantic or 186 guests aboard Ocean Victory/Ocean Albatros, this voyage offers a unique experience for the few. Shore landings, excursions, lectures and whale safaris are easily accommodated to help you enjoy a unique expedition experience

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
