Starting in Buenos Aires, you have the opportunity to discover the “Paris of South America” before embarking on MS Fram in Ushuaia, the world's southernmost town and setting course for the Southern Ocean. En route to Antarctica we sail through the notorious Drake Passage, where two oceans meet. Then we head through open sea towards a continent of endless white wilderness, with its overwhelming presence of nature and wildlife. Old research stations Deception Island, Half Moon Island and Yankee Harbour all have a diverse landscape, amazing animal life and spectacular photo opportunities. The narrow Errera Channel offers a spectacular passage to and from Cuverville Island. Neko Harbour is feeding ground for shy Minke whales. Paradise Harbour offers another rare opportunity for a mainland landing and some of the finest vistas of the Antarctic Peninsula. The Lemaire Channel is known as one of the most beautiful passages in Antarctica and Petermann Island is a great place for iceberg- and whale-spotting. From our Polarcircel boats we can take a closer look at the partially submerged wreck of a Norwegian whaling ship, evidence of the historical activity on and off these remote shores. Crossing the Antarctic Circle The forming of the sea ice in Antarctica is the largest natural seasonal phenomenon on Earth, and during the austral summer more than 20 million square kilometres of sea ice melts. Taking advantage of this passage we are venturing far into the areas that are almost permanently iced down, inside the winter-locked landscape of Antarctica. Hardly anyone sails this far south, let alone goes ashore. Our Antarctic circle expedition lets you go ashore several places and get even closer to penguins, seals, whales and birds by hiking, kayaking and snowshoeing. You might even get a chance to spend a night ashore in a tent. Turning back and leaving Antarctica, we will once again sail through the Drake Passage, before disembarking in Ushuaia.
