Pristine, remote and truly awesome
When embarking on one of our most ambitious voyages to Antarctica, it’s best to travel with an open mind and expect the unexpected. The overwhelming power of nature and teeming wildlife, thriving despite the extremes of temperature, will leave you speechless, creating everlasting memories to take home. Come ashore on isolated beaches to encounter incredible wildlife in haunting landscapes, take kayak trips in untouched waters with icebergs floating by, or spend a night in a tent under the stars.
Starting in Buenos Aires, you have the opportunity to discover the ”Paris of South America” before embarking on MS Fram in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost town. From there, we set a course through the scenic Beagle Channel.
We cross open sea before we reach the Falkland Islands, with its seamless horizons, vast open spaces, stunning white sand beaches and wildlife like penguins and albatrosses. Here, we first explore the northwest before we continue to the capital Stanley, with its red buses and English pubs. Stanley is also the natural starting point for several excursions.
Captivating South Georgia
On board lectures will prepare you for South Georgia, where we sail into the mountainous Drygalski Fjord at the southern end of the island to visit some of South Georgia’s abandoned whaling stations. Then the lecture series will turn its focus on Antarctica, including an introduction to the Antarctic visitor guidelines, as we approach the coldest, driest, windiest and most remote continent on Earth.
Antarctica and the wonders of the Deep South
Antarctica is a peaceful continent where man’s primary activity is science. It has evolved through millennia without human interference; here, wild animals remain fearless of man. We will visit several places in Antarctica, depending on the ice and wind condition we might visit Whalers Bay, Half Moon Island and Brown Bluff, a landscape dominated by a towering, rust-coloured bluff of volcanic origin, next to a beach sprinkled with lava “bombs”. Smell, hear and see the rich penguin colonies, watch whales break the surface and always be prepared for the unexpected. Being our smallest vessel in Antarctica, MS Fram qualifies for the largest range of possible landing sites-
The Expedition team will grasp opportunities to take you hiking in the Antarctic mountains, kayak among icebergs or set up your tent to follow in the footsteps of the great explorers. Returning, we will once again sail through the Drake Passage, notorious among the early polar explorers, before disembarking in Ushuaia.
