Adelies in Antarctica

Antarctica

High atop any adventure-seeking traveler’s bucket list is Antarctica for its plethora of once-in-a-lifetime adventure travel experiences: cruising among sparkling icebergs with a brilliant blue sky backdrop, meeting an elephant seal pup face to face, visiting a scientific research station at the bottom of the world, photographing thousands upon thousands of penguins. 

A hallmark of Zeghram’s Antarctica expeditions is the ability to land by Zodiac wherever nature and curiosity dictate. We travel during the austral summer, making for longer daylight hours and therefore, more landings per day on remote shores. In fact, since we travel south via a small-expedition ship, we enable our travelers to actually set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula, a feat the larger cruise ships simply can’t accomplish. Plus, our veteran leaders and renowned lecturers will provide incredible insight into the region, its wildlife, and its history.
