Crossing The Polar Circle

Visit operator website

Run by: Wildlife Worldwide

Reference number: 2336

From: £Contact us

The aim of this voyage is to reach as far south as weather and ice conditions will permit, and cross the Antarctic Circle, a feat that only a few will ever accomplish.

The route takes you further down the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula than a Classic Antarctica trip, and you'll feel an added sense of excitement as you push south towards the Circle. Navigate some of the white continent's most scenic waterways through awe-inspiring terrain, littered with giant icebergs.

A typical Polar Circle itinerary is shown below, however we offer a choice of itineraries, expedition vessels and cabin types to suit your requirements.
