As you cross the Antarctic Circle at the 66th southern parallel, you enter what feels like another world, creating a connection with your inner explorer spirit. It’s a space rarely navigated, with narrower channels that bring you closer to ice floes, snow-capped mountain peaks and wondrous icebergs, making for a picture-perfect scene you’ll want to capture on your camera. On this expedition, aside from joining the Order of the Red Nose, you’ll also explore the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands. December brings Gentoo, Adélie and chinstrap penguin courtship rituals in the Antarctic Peninsula while January brings you to Weddell seals molting in the South Shetland Islands. In February you may see leopard seals or orcas hunting while in March albatross chicks begin to hatch, looking absolutely charming in their downy feathers.
