Antarctic Circle

On an expedition cruise to the Antarctic Circle you venture further south and attempt to cross the circle at 66° 33′ South. With dropping temperatures and more extreme weather conditions, only few expeditions go this far south into a region seldom visited.

Why visit Antarctic Circle ?

  • Embark on an expedition to the remote corners of Antarctica
  • Cross the Antarctic Circle and get very close to the South Pole
  • Take in the breathtaking wilderness this far south
  • Set foot on Detaille Island and visit the remains of its British station
  • Combine the Antarctic Circle with other fascinating destinations down south

Extended time in the polar region allows you to go beyond the Antarctic Peninsula where you enter an extraordinary wilderness of ice-sheets, glaciers and barren deserts that have formed over millennia.

Zodiacs will take you on explorations of the deep blue waters with floating icebergs in numerous shades of blue and grey in search of wildlife including the Weddell seal. The expedition cruise passes through waters travelled by humpback, Minke and Fin whales and you get to explore less-frequented landing sites such as the abandoned British station on Detaille Island. The landscape this far south is dominated by enormous mountains and glaciers and you get to see one of the southernmost Adelie penguins and bue-eyed shag colonies in the Antarctic Peninsula.
