At a Glance

Journey beyond Cape Horn to an icy paradise where penguins and seals are your local welcoming committee. Once you have conquered the storied waters of the Drake Passage, explore volcanic islands and iceberg-filled bays of the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands as seasoned naturalists and biologists introduce you to the world’s frozen desert. See the exemplary adaptations by which life thrives in the icy waters and the forces that make Antarctica a frozen wonderland as you embark on Zodiac rides and hikes on snowy beaches where the only tracks are from penguins shuffling to and from their nests.
