The start of the cruise will be marked by the crossing of the mythical Drake Passage, before reaching the White Continent, realm of the unexpected where nature reigns supreme. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this extreme environment will reveal to you its most magical secrets through your many explorations.
On this uninhabited land, unexplored till the 19th century, your encounters with the wildlife will no doubt be one of the highlights of your experience. The Gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins, humpback whales, seals and seabirds will provide you with cherished lifelong memories.
Each day, whether on land, aboard your ship or during a Zodiac outing, you will be surrounded by a grandiose decor ranging from icebergs to ice floe and ancient glaciers.
Highlight of your cruise: sailing on the Weddell Sea, taking advantage of a time of year when it is relatively free of ice to sail amid the free-floating pack ice. A top spot for polar exploration in the Antarctic, the Weddell Sea offers spectacular, unrivalled scenery.
