This voyage follows in the wake (and footsteps) of Sir Ernest Shackleton and travels to one of Antarctica's hidden gems, the Weddell Sea.
The itinerary sails into a land of icebergs, whose volcanic islands are a haven for birdlife and a great place to experience wildlife amid stunning scenery.
En route to your destination, there should be good whale watching opportunities in these feeding grounds for humpback whales. You'll also explore the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula and its offshore islands on a series of exciting excursions including Paulet Island, Brown Bluff and even the southerly Snow Hill Island, where you will observe Weddell and elephant seals, seabirds and penguins.
A typical Weddell Sea Explorer itinerary is shown below, however durations vary depending on expedition vessel and date.
