In the Wake of Scott and Shackleton

The pinnacle of Antarctic exploration | 33 – 35 Days

The Ross Sea is one of the most remote regions and is only accessible for two months each year when the ice thaws. This region was the magnet that drew many of the most famous explorers and adventurers including Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen. There are five historic huts that we visit and learn more of their history and the explorers’ achievements.

The Ross Sea region is the breeding ground for millions of adelie and emperor penguins and we regularly encounter both species. We have permits for landing in the sub-Antarctic islands Auckland, Campbell and Macquarie.
