The Antarctic Peninsula And Weddell Sea - M/v Polar Pioneer

Giant tabular icebergs of the Weddell Sea
Journey deep into Antarctica and visit both sides of the Peninsula. The Weddell Sea is a pristine area of Antarctica, reserved only for the luckiest of polar travellers. It boasts huge tabular icebergs, pristine seas and an uncompromising environment reserved for rare and unique wildlife. It was here
that polar explorer Ernest Shackleton travelled, too, on his quest to conquer this inhospitable environment. During your cruise, you'll not only see the world's tallest penguins, the emperors, but observe seals, whales and birds at close quarters.

Tour Highlights

  • Follow in the footsteps of famous polar explorer Ernest Shackleton
  • Journey deep into Antarctica, territory trodden by only a few lucky explorers
  • Take Zodiacs beneath huge icebergs and towering glaciated peaks
  • See whales, seals and vast penguin colonies
