Cross the circle and enjoy more time exploring the Antarctic Peninsula. Utilizing our decades of experience, we have designed a voyage allowing us to reach our objective of the Antarctic Circle in just 11 days. On the way south, we enjoy eight days of off-ship exploration visiting a large number of landing sites and cruising among the ice floes in our Zodiac boats, before reaching the Antarctic Circle in the vicinity of Detaille Island.

This unique expedition provides a modern twist on a much-loved classic. Utilizing our decades of experience, this innovative itinerary allows us to reach our objective of the Antarctic Circle in just 11 days. From Punta Arenas in Chile we fly to the embarkation point of Stanley in the Falkland Islands. Crossing south to Antarctica we witness the magnificent pelagic seabirds of the southern ocean, including the Wandering albatross. This ocean habitat is a fascinating ecosystem in its own right. Navigating our way towards the Circle, we enjoy seven days of off-ship exploration along the Antarctic Peninsula, visiting a large number of landing sites and cruising among the ice floes in our Zodiac boats.
