Antarctic Peninsula with Circle Crossing
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. You'll sail the Drake Passage past the South Shetland Islands and then really explore the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, venturing farther south than most on a quest for the Antarctic Circle!

"Excellent in Every Way"
"Every day on the National Geographic ship was memorable. With the zodiacs, we could approach wildlife within a few feet and observe their behavior unhurried. The naturalists taught us so much about the grizzlies, marine mammals and birds. The service of the staff was excellent in every way. We've traveled extensively and find that the small ship cruises are perfect. They afford more comfort in getting to the next destination and you only have to pack and unpack your luggage once. It was great working with ExpeditionTrips to plan our trip. They were always helpful and available. Thank you!"
