Start and end in Ushuaia, the trip Quest For The Antarctic Circle is a guided photography trip that takes 14 days. You will be traveling through Ushuaia, Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands in Antarctica and Argentina. Quest For The Antarctic Circle is a group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

A massive rookery of penguins shuffles across a frozen shore; a pod of whales glides through frigid waters; dramatic landscapes float off in the distance — welcome to Antarctica. Join us on a voyage of discovery to our planet’s last frontier — a mysterious and virtually pristine paradise. Our ice-strengthened expedition ship is ideally suited to cruising this icy wilderness, and her expert staff are on hand to ensure you’ll fully appreciate all the majesty you encounter. Sail the Drake Passage past the South Shetland Islands, then really explore the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Prepare yourself for an adventure like no other — more like a private expedition than a traditional cruise.
