Travel to Antarctica, flying over the Drake Passage, and take zodiac trips to explore this icy wonde

There is only one true wilderness left on Earth... and it’s damn cold. Like being trapped in the belly of one big unflavored icy-pole, you would think a trip down to the south-est of the south is only for 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. On 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… Antarctica's magic awaits.
