This 12 day Antarctica expedition cruise aboard MS HANSEATIC Inspiration gives you the chance to explore the southernmost continent aboard one of the world’s most luxurious expedition ships.
Sailing round-trip from Ushuaia, the itinerary features six days of close-quarters discovery in the Antarctica Peninsula where you will be led by an expert expedition team on excursions both on land and by Zodiac. During your time in the region, you will have ample opportunities to see some of Antarctica’s incredible wildlife, including elephant seals, orca, dolphins and a variety of penguins.
The voyage also includes a trip to the neighbouring South Shetland Islands. Situated just under 80 miles north of the Antarctic Peninsula, the Islands were first discovered in the early 1800s. Permanently glacial yet with an ecosystem that sustains a small amount of tundra vegetation, the South Shetland Islands are also home to numerous research stations, the majority of which are located on King George Island.
The largest of the South Shetland Islands, King George Island is noted in particular for being the location of the annual Antarctic Marathon in which competitors are invited to run – or ski – the 26 mile race.
When not exploring, you will find that MS HANSEATIC Inspiration offers the perfect base for a spot of relaxation. Her facilities include three restaurants, an interactive science lounge and even an outdoor jacuzzi!Contact Us
