Floating castles of ice glisten in the warmth of the austral sun... glacial mountains rise from the sea, framed against a radiant sky... in an instant, a bright sun illuminates a floating regatta of ice formations... Explorers throughout the centuries have been captivated by the ice... Today, you are that Antarctic explorer. Few experiences can compare to the feeling you'll have as you head off on an expeditionary Antarctica cruise and immerse in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and, when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment. Your adventure begins with two nights in amazing Buenos Aires, Argentina. Then it's all aboard Le Boréal or Le Soléal for a 10-night cruise to a magical wonderland where the locals, from penguins and seals to seabirds, welcome you ashore with friendly curiosity. Learn about their life and icy habitats from onboard naturalists who educate and inspire. And at night, enjoy informal chats, onboard lectures, documentary films and warm camaraderie with fellow explorers, captain and crew.
