Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent

DEPARTING FROM:Buenos AiresFINAL DESTINATION:Buenos Aires

DURATION:12 Days/ 11 NightsREGION:AntarcticaSHIP:National Geographic Explorer

Remote. Untrammelled. Spectacular. An Antarctica cruise is one of the most exhilarating adventures on Earth. There are many reasons to explore it. Antarctica wildlife: scores of penguins and whales. Ice: an entire museum of colossal and magical ice forms defying description. And the dashing history of the Heroic Age of Exploration. And, one of the best ways to discover it all is when you cruise aboard Lindblad Expeditions' National Geographic Explorer on this 12 day adventure to the Antarctic Peninsula.

You’ll get out on adventures every day in Antarctica, sometimes twice a day - to walk or hike, kayak or Zodiac cruise among the icebergs. Because National Geographic Explorer has a fleet of both Zodiacs and kayaks, the entire expedition community can embark at once on forays, no waiting around for returning parties. You’ll have a choice of activities each day, and the option to join the naturalist whose interests mirror yours. Choice also includes opting to enjoy the view from the bridge, the all-glass observation lounge, the library or the chart room.

National Geographic Explorer

Operated by: Lindblad Expeditions

Originally built for service along Norway’s coast as part of the famed Hurtigruten, or Coastal Express, National Geographic Explorer was completely rebuilt in 2008 upon her acquisition by Lindblad Expeditions. Explorer is uniquely equipped with an ice-strengthened hull and advanced navigation equipment for polar expeditions; a roster of tools for exploration; and a well-appointed interior with vast expanses of glass for an unprecedented connection to the outdoors. Explorer accommodates 148 guests in 81 cabins, including 13 cabins with private balconies, six spacious suites and 14 cabins specifically designed for single travellers. At 112  metres with six decks, she is spacious and modern, with a variety of public rooms that offer startling views of the passing landscape. Friendly and informal, Explorer instantly fosters a welcoming environment where enthused and curious passengers share in exceptional experiences and enrichment. Her public rooms include a dramatic window-lined library and observation lounge perched at the very top of the ship, plentiful observation decks, and the forward facing chart room. The spacious lounge is the heart of the ship and is also used for informative presentations.
