Antarctica: adventurous experience

“If Antarctica were music it would be Mozart. Art, and it would be Michelangelo. Literature, and it would be Shakespeare. And yet it is something even greater; the only place on earth that is still as it should be. May we never tame it.”

There are trips planning which takes longer than usually. For a true adventure passionate Antarctica may seem a dream to come real.  On the other hand Antarctica is far away from a comfortable luxury travel experience. But what if there would be a chance to combine extreme and luxury?

Oceanwide Expeditions (the company specializes in adventurous excursions to polar regions) seems like found the answer, since the company is already announcing its 2017 Antarctica adventure cruise now. The trip will be organized for 116 passengers and will last for 32 days.  Ross Sea, a polar region where expedition is mainly planned, is famous for very challenging navigation but still is a dream for real adventurers looking to visit one of the most remote and extreme locations on Earth.

The trip is scheduled to leave the South American continent and head for the Antarctic Peninsula. The route crosses the polar circle, arriving at the west of Peter I island, before sailing through the ice to the Ross Ice Shelf and finally reaching the Ross Sea. The trip then heads to the sub-Antarctic Campbell Island and ends in New Zealand. The firm will be operating two Ross Sea cruises in 2017, with one running in the opposite direction, from New Zealand to Argentina.

With the help of two helicopters the amateur explorers will be taken to remote locations like the refuges used by the first explorers to discover the region.  This kind of cruise is valued at over  EUR 20 000.

Bon voyage  to the most spectacular Antarctic journey ever!
