Expedition to Antarctica

When: January 04, 2018 - January 17, 2018 (iCal)

Description

 
 

“I felt very privileged to be in such an unspoiled, pristine land.”

 

Our adventure begins with two nights in enchanting Buenos Aires. Then we’ll fly to the world’s southernmost city and board the five-star Ice-Class ship M.S. Le Boréal for an exclusively chartered cruise to the White Continent. We’ll cross the legendary Drake Passage to the Antarctic Convergence, where fin, humpback, and minke whales abound. Our team of expert naturalists will share a series of insightful commentaries, and will lead onshore expeditions into the Antarctic wilderness. We’ll encounter towering mountains of ice and lava, majestic glaciers, and amazing wildlife, including surprisingly approachable penguins and seals. To top off this journey of a lifetime, we can even add a three-night excursion to awe-inspiring Iguazú Falls.
