At a Glance

Embark from Argentina to explore the Antarctic Peninsula and its South American neighbors, as you learn about the history of this region and search for the wildlife that thrive in this frozen wonderland. Look up towards the night sky as a million stars twinkle above this remote landscape while seals rest on shore. During the day, expert naturalists share their knowledge as whales breach and penguins play among the ice caps, unafraid of the humans exploring their land.
