Explore a land virtually untouched by society. Experience the dramatic scenery and wildlife of the Antarctic on this voyage with Adventure Canada. Follow in the wake of Captain Cook as we attempt to cross the fabled Antarctic Circle. Setting sail aboard the well-appointed Ocean Endeavour, we leave Ushuaia and civilisation behind and head towards the hauntingly beautiful icy wilderness of Antarctica. The scenery is nothing but dramatic as we sail amongst immense ice carvings, majestic mountains shrouded in snow, calving glaciers and through ice-choked waterways. Discover the wildlife and history of the Antarctic Peninsula by Zodiac cruises, shore landings, hikes and kayaking. We visit vast noisy penguin and seal colonies and scan the waters in search of orcas and leopard seals on the hunt, and seabirds soaring above. On board enjoy in depth lectures by local experts on history, geology and ecology or relax in the Jacuzzi or pool, enjoy a drink at the bar, or a good book from the library. Just don’t forget to go out on deck and witness the stunning beauty of the icebergs, glaciated mountains, sea birds and penguins. Those who book early will enjoy significant savings starting at $2,160 per person. Don’t delay booking as space on this cruise will not last forever.

Book and deposit by January 29, 2020 & save from $2,160 to $4,860 per person (savings not reflected in listed prices, call for details).
