After two days of navigating the Drake Passage, you’re greeted by the sight of monumental icebergs and expansive glaciers. It’s a vision that inspires a profound sense of humility in the face of such raw natural beauty. Each day brings a new adventure as an expert expedition team guides the way on up to two shore landings a day and Zodiac safaris, always included in every Antarctica expedition. Teeming with wildlife, this extraordinary destination invites you to marvel over the wonders this world has to offer and take a moment to appreciate how truly far away you are from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
