Polar Circle Fly&Cruise

Choose your dates

10 days | Antarctica | Expedition Cruise

This expedition offers the most in-depth Antarctic experience, sailing further south to try and reach the Antarctic Circle.

Towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes, massive icebergs and the option to choose your favourite activities every day make this voyage the perfect exploration of the white continent.

In the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, we spend our days off the ship exploring by Zodiac, making shore landings in the company of our expert guides. By breaking into small special interest groups, we discover Antarctica and its remarkable wildlife through photography, Zodiac excursions, hiking onshore, and for the more adventurous, sea kayaking. Visits to historic huts and working research bases add another dimension to the voyage.

This classic expedition features many of the well-known landing sites such as the South Shetland Islands, the Antarctic Sound, the Gerlache and Penola Straits, and the Crystal Sound. Each voyage is unique and each is crafted to provide the best possible overview of the varied Antarctic environment.

Ship Information

Sail on the brand-new M/V Magellan Explorer, a custom-built ship designed for maximum comfort while maintaining an expeditionary feel. For air-cruises, she carries 73 guests accommodated in seven categories of accommodation. All cabins except Porthole cabins feature private balconies. Enjoy your time on board in the  glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room, plus a spacious and stylish dining room.

Ocean Nova is a sturdy and nimble expedition vessel built in Denmark in 1992 to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland. It has a strengthened hull that is ideally suited for expedition travel in Antarctica. The ship was fully refurbished in 2006 and since then has benefitted from annual upgrades and improvements.
