There is nothing quite like the surreal remoteness, extreme cold or enormous ice shelves of Antarctica. Whether whale watching across the open seas, spying a penguin rookery or kayaking across the icy waters, the polar ice cap offers an experience like no other.
The journey begins in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the luxurious Melia Recoleta Hotel for 4 nights before flying to Ushuaia, Argentina to visit the southernmost post office in the world.
We then board the Russian icebreaker, “Akademik Loffe” for the expedition to Antarctica. This vessel is chartered for the journey and apart from its accommodation and great hospitality, it is a working research vessel.
Once on board the real adventure begins with towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes and massive icebergs.
With the “Akademik Loffe” as our mothership we will explore by Zodiac the coastline making 2 to 3 shore landings with expert guides. You have the option to camp on the ice, go sea kayaking and hiking or take in lectures from biologists who specialise in marine mammals.
Antarctica is a bucket list destination for most people and what better way to see it than on a Tour with Depth?
