Antarctic Peninsula and the Polar Circle
The Antarctic Circle lies a good day’s sailing south of the southernmost area our vessels normally visit and if you want to try to cross ‘the line’, one of these departures are for you. An area comparatively rarely visited, prone to heavier sea ice it can often be very ‘otherworldy’ with most of the islands and land here heavily covered in ice and snow albeit with less wildlife than further north. An on- deck champagne party and special celebrations are usually the order of the day too. These voyages range from 11 to 14 nights.
