Across the Circle

Crossing the fabled Antarctic Circle has held fascination for adventurers and explorers since Captain Cook first did so in 1773. Join us as we 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, and the dramatic landscapes of the most pristine region of the planet, under the guidance of our expert staff and crew.
