Cross the Antarctic Circle on These Expedition Cruises
Antarctica Circle cruises follow the route of the classic Antarctic Peninsula cruises, but then spend 2 or 3 additional days to go further south and cross the Antarctic Circle. Review vessel options that offer these programs below and contact us to talk with an Antarctica specialist.
Key Things to Know for Antarctic Circle Trips:
Unparalleled experience in a less-visited place: Far fewer travelers make it down to cross the Antarctic circle, one of the most remote places on the planet.
Longer cruises: Spend more time in Antarctica than you would on a classic Antarctic Peninsula cruise (usually 2-3 days more).
Top Highlights: Marguerite Bay, a body of water where chunks of icebergs float past as you visit tiny, frozen islands. Detaille Island, former home of the British Antarctic Survey base, which is preserved and offers a glimpse of the Antarctic accommodations of the 1950s.
Less wildlife: It’s important to note that there is typically less wildlife as you travel further south. While you will typically see more abundant wildlife as you traverse the northern part of your route, it generally thins out as you approach the Antarctic Circle.
