Antarctica: Far Side and the Ross Sea

Few travellers reach this remote territory, where the tempestuous south wind brushes the sea floor white. The extra effort to reach it is repaid by dramatic scenery and a unique wilderness experience. Two epic cruise voyages between Argentina and New Zealand usually run annually, aiming to reach Scott and Shackleton’s huts, and to sail in the shadow of Mount Erebus, Mount Terror and the Ross Ice shelf.

The wildlife highlight here is the presence of rookeries of the regal Emperor penguin, the largest of the species, usually present between October and early December.
