Welcome to Antarctica. Seeing the 7th continent for the first time is unlike anything you would have experienced before. Feeling the fresh, crisp air on your face. Hearing the snow crunch under your boot when you first step foot on the pristine land. Watching the unperturbed wildlife in their natural habitat. This is a land of peace.  
Your expert Captain and crew will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways which may include traversing the stunning 11-kilometer-long Lemaire Channel where steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage just 700 meters wide at its narrowest point. There may be the chance to visit a working scientific base and discuss life in these harsh conditions with the staff. Enjoy the chance to visit areas alive with wildlife, such as penguins, seals, and whales. You could explore the remnants of a derelict whaling station and a vacant British base or climb to the rim of a volcanic crater. If conditions are favorable, there may be the opportunity to cross the Antarctic Circle at latitude 66°33’ South.  
Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, a host of choices are open, and, depending on the ice and weather conditions, the Antarctic Peninsula is yours to explore. Your experienced Discovery Team Leaders, who have made countless journeys to Antarctica, will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day, making the most of 18-20 hours of daylight.
