Expedition to Antarctica - Tour Summary

Join us for this spectacular 15-day journey featuring a ten-night cruise to Antarctica, Earth’s last frontier. Cruise aboard the exclusively chartered, intimate MS L’AUSTRAL, the finest vessel in Antarctic waters, combining innovative design with personalized service and featuring private balconies in 95% of the deluxe, ocean-view suites and staterooms. Experience the White Continent in its unspoiled state—fantastically shaped icebergs, turquoise glaciers, bustling penguin rookeries and breaching whales—during the lingering light of the austral summer. Accompanied by the ship’s expert expedition team of naturalists, board sturdy Zodiac craft for excursions ashore and observe the antics of Antarctica’s abundant wildlife—penguins and seals, especially, are unafraid of human visitors. The expedition team will provide a series of enriching lectures on this untouched wilderness. Also, spend two nights in a deluxe hotel in Buenos Aires, including a tour of this vibrant capital city. Extend your journey with the exclusive three-night Iguazú Falls post-program option. This unique itinerary sells out every year!
