Scott & Shackleton’s Antarctic Ross Sea Expedition

How cool would this opportunity be and it will be leaving direct from New Zealand with a choice of two dates in 2022:

Ponant Luxury Expedition aboard Le Soléal
22 days / 21 nights

Sailing the Ross Sea means discovering one of the most extreme and pristine regions of Antarctica, where the cold is more intense,
the ice more impressive and the scenery more spectacular. In the heart of this polar Garden of Eden, where the ice shelf turns into icebergs, you will encounter prodigious fauna, as well as surrealist landscapes, with infinite shades of blue and stunning reliefs.
Antarctic petrels, Minke whales, Orcas and 5 species of seals are at home here, as are very large colonies of Adelie penguins. During your voyage you will also discover the flora and fauna of the SubAntarctic Islands. Be in awe of the remarkable haven for wildlife that is the Snares, Campbell Island with a stunning flora display and Macquarie Island, long celebrated as one of the wonder spots of the world, a place of great beauty and outstanding natural diversity.
