A true expedition and a Christmas to remember.
As we head to the Weddell Sea you will be amazed at the flat-topped tabular bergs, some the size of whole city blocks that break off the vast ice tongues far to the south, before drifting north on the ocean currents. A known emperor penguin rookery at Snow Hill Island means that we have our best possible chance of encountering the largest of Antarctica’s penguins while exploring in this region. | Note this is a sample itinerary.

Our journey to Antarctica commences this afternoon in Ushuaia, in southern Argentina. We gather at our central meeting point and transfer to the pier and embark our expedition ship. After settling into our cabins and exploring the ship, we meet our expedition team and fellow passengers.
