ANTARCTIC VOYAGES 2016-2017

 

Ross Sea voyage - The greatest discovery voyage in Antarctica 

A spectacular discovery voyage to the Ross Sea on board Ortelius.
 

Sail to places where you are the only explorers, crossing the Polar Circle to Antarctica, set foot on Peter I Island (so far less than 1,000 people have been there). You are probably the only vessel sailing in the southern Bellingshausen and Amundsen Sea, in the footsteps of famous polar explorers, to the Ross Sea where you can observe the original basecamps of Scott and Shackleton.

You will encounter huge ice-formations, orcas and emperor penguins and fly to the Mc Murdo Dry Valleys, a bizarre place comparable to planet Mars.

This is a voyage like no other; pure discovery, where temperatures and landscapes vary constantly and unique experiences are guaranteed; you cross the global date line and experience the same day twice. 

The 32-day voyage combines three continents; South-America, Antarctica and New Zealand, Oceania. Close to New Zealand we visit Campbell Island, the most important breeding area of the southern royal albatross.

Some great very last minute offers may still be available on the last cabins! This voyage will not be offered again before 2020, so this is your unique chance to explore!
