Weddell Sea & Antarctic Peninsula

Weddell Sea & Antarctic Peninsula Weddell Sea & Antarctic Peninsula

Wild isolation, immensely powerful tides, blindingly white pack ice and monumental icebergs make this voyage into the Weddell Sea a true expedition.

Explore the Weddell Sea region and you will be struck by a sense of splendid isolation- and the beauty of nature in its most raw, uncompromising state. Your expedition to the Weddell Sea will take you to one of the most remote areas on Earth. A place where huge tabular icebergs flow ceaselessly from the Antarctic Sound - monstrous ice giants carved into eerie shapes by the biting wind.

You’ll visit them by Zodiac and walk on the glaciers of the Antarctic Peninsula. You’ll find colonies of penguins and any number of cormorants, petrels and magnificent black-browed albatross. You’ll see seals gambolling around the edge of the horizon-wide pack ice. You should spot humpback whales and hunter-killer leopard seals.

You will discover all this and more, on your unforgettable expedition across the Weddell Sea and along the Antarctic Peninsular.

Shore visits are included but depend on weather conditions. Extra excursions vary with different itineraries and weather, and could typically include:
