- Explore the remarkable South Shetland Islands
- Visit the Antarctic Peninsula, the most pristine wilderness on earth
- View incredible wildlife including penguins, seals and whales
The aim on this expedition is to experience all the wonders of the Antarctic Peninsula, in a shorter time. We will enjoy landings and Zodiac cruises in magnificent spots such as Cuverville Island, Wilhelmina Bay and Paradise Harbour where we may encounter colossal icebergs and, of course, ice landscapes that stretch to infinity. On this adventure we will also visit penguin rookeries, scout for Humpback and Minke whales, Orcas and a number of the southern seal species, including the all mighty Leopard seal. We'll celebrate the festive season in the world's most wondrous setting. Our very stable ship is a perfect viewing and photographic platform and it doesn't get truly dark in an Antarctic summer so, even after excursions you may enjoy special times on the ship's outer decks sipping eggnog as snow gently falls or enjoying a Christmas barbecue while admiring the wild crystal landscape.
Antarctica is a special place for adventurous souls to revel in the ultimate 'White Christmas'!
What makes this trip responsible?
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas. Exodus is an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and has agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Our ship operators in Spitsbergen are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.
However, perhaps the single most important thing any polar travel company can do, is educate their clients to travel sensitively and compassionately. Our expedition team on each ship takes this part of their role very seriously, and looks forward to explaining how everyone can play their part.
