Antarctic Circle Cruise

Antarctic Circle Cruise Antarctic Circle Cruise
$ 10468.242

At the extremes of the Earth, expect extreme environments: iceberg graveyards, monumental landscapes, highly adapted wildlife, sunshine at midnight, shocking beauty.

Cruise across the Antarctic Circle and you are automatically a member of an elite club. You become one of only a few intrepid human beings in the history of the world who have ventured this far south.

And what an adventure you can expect. You’ll see huge colonies of nesting sea birds. You’ll sail past the vast, white silhouettes of icebergs carved into fantastical shapes by piercing winds. Ghosts in a silent graveyard.

Have your camera constantly to hand; you may easily spot the leviathans of the deep, see comical penguins and encounter cute-faced killers, like leopard seals.

Shore visits are included but depend on weather conditions. Extra excursions vary with different itineraries and weather, and could typically include:

  • Kayaking to icebergs and floes
  • Camping on the polar ice
  • Hiking
  • Snow-shoeing

Lead in prices below are based on a Standard Twin Cabin with private bathroom and are cruise only. However, we would be happy to arrange any pre or post cruise accommodation as well as international flights upon request.

Prices are based on a US$ exchange rate of 1.45. Please note that exchange rates may be subject to fluctuation.
