Journey across the Circle

Since Captain Cook first crossed the Antarctic Circle in 1773, it has held a deep fascination for adventurers and explorers alike. On this voyage we attempt to venture towards the line, and discover a whole new world of rarely explored bays and coves; a treasure trove of exciting and remote new places, where only a few are fortunate to visit. This is a journey filled with wonderful discoveries and the joy of exploration in an untouched wonderland. With regular landings on our zodiacs, we walk among the multitude of penguin rookeries and seal colonies in the vicinity of Deception Island, Gerlache Strait, Paradise Bay and the Lemaire Channel. Throughout the voyage there are ample opportunities to enjoy our wildlife encounters, or to kayak, snorkel or dive the cool waters of this pristine environment.
