Travel south from Invercargill to explore New Zealand's Subantarctic and Antarctica's Ross Sea. Very few expeditions have ever travelled this far South, well beyond the Antarctic circle. Follow in the footsteps of the great polar explorers such as Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton. En route we will explore the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the NZ Subantarctic Islands. In addition, spend 2 weeks exploring the Ross Sea region of Antarctica - part of New Zealand's Ross Dependency. Be welcomed to Scott Base, visit bustling penguin colonies and set foot in early explorers' huts described by Sir David Attenborough as "a time warp without parallel". Expedition cruises depart every January and February. Limited Cabins available.
