Antarctica – Impossible to Describe
Antarctica never fails to inspire awe and wonder. Ninety per cent of the world´s ice is here, in some places up to 4,000 metres thick, covering the landmass. In winter, sea ice virtually doubles the size of the continent. In summer, it is a fertile breeding ground for millions of penguins, seals and whales.
As outlined in the Antarctic Treaty, this is a continent dedicated to peace, science and tourism. No human activity is permitted that alters the perfect natural balance that has evolved through millennia without interference. That´s why we follow very strict environmental rules. We want to leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures!
This is true wilderness, so our experienced captain will work with the conditions to create the best possible itinerary for your adventure.
We will attempt landings on several sites in the South Shetlands and on the Antarctic Peninsula and aim to show you the diversity of the regions wildlife and landscape.
On this special voyage, we hope to cross the Polar Circle at 66°33’ south, far beyond the limit of most cruises in Antarctica, venturing far into the areas that are permanently iced down and unnavigable in the winter.
Whenever opportunities arise, our Expedition Team will take you for landings and ice cruising to get close to the surreal beauty of Antarctica.
It´s hard to sum up the power of the experience. As a well-known quote from veteran Antarctic travellers puts it: “If you can describe Antarctica with words, you have probably never been there.”
