Antarctic Express: Fly South, Cruise North Overview
- 2015-02-02 - 2015-02-10
Head to Antarctica on an adventure to explore the frozen continent
There is only one true wilderness left on Earth, and it’s damn cold. Like being trapped in the belly of one big unflavoured icy-pole, you would think a trip down to the south-est of the south is for but the bravest of the brave. Surely that’s why Antarctica’s early explorers were so legendary? But what if you could discover this pristine frozen paradise from the warmth and comfort of an expedition vessel? Where you can be ferried to shore in a zippy Zodiac, and where a chef ensures the onset of scurvy is kept well at bay? In this nine-day adventure, experience everything that this unbelievable continent has to offer, from penguins, to ice, to seals, to ice, to albatross, to ice… The Antarctic magic awaits.
