Ross Sea - In the Wake of Scott and Shackleton

Research Ship Spirit of Enderby

View These Trips

Despite being the coldest and windiest continent, Antarctica is also by far the most beautiful, both for its wildlife and its sheer physical splendour.  Those who undertake the Ross Sea voyage are rewarded not only with this, but also by being able to experience first-hand the crucible of Antarctic exploration: the ordeal of navigating the pack ice, the welcoming sentinel of Mount Erebus' plume, the historic huts of Borchgrevink, Scott and Shackleton, finally the impenetrable wall of the Ross Ice-Shelf. On top of all this,  Antarctica, with its unique system of governance, reminds us what a terrible mess we have made of the rest of the planet, but also inspires us to rectify all the harm we have done to it and ourselves.

Expedition trips is great. They helped in our planning and worked with us in getting organized. We were properly advised about the Enderby. The expedition guides were fantastic. The places we went to and what we saw were awe inspiring!!  Morton, in particular, deserves special attention. He made sure you saw as much as possible while in the zodiacs. Brent was more aligned with the hardcore birders but that was ok. He is a brilliant man with a massive knowledge of seabirds. Adam obviously knows the region very well and knows where to go to see the most wildlife.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC AND MEMORABLE. You were always quick to respond to my questions. The trip was exceptionally well organized – great crew, well paced, valuable and informative lectures, fabulous food, and comfortable and tidy cabins. I had a fabulous time on the beach with Royal and King penguins at Macquarie Island.

I would book future trips with ExpeditionTrips.com, if they fit into my future travel plans. I can't think of anything to improve the service provided. And thank you for the bottle of wine on board!

We just got back from our trip on the Ortelius. WOW!!!! It was fantastic. Everyone on board was so friendly and helpful. We loved the food and of course the excursions. The expedition staff worked really hard to find all the animals and we saw everything! It was truly one of the best trips we have taken, we will recommend it to anyone. Thank you again for your help with everything.

It went beyond my expectations! I think the staff, guides and crew did a fine job. We were kept well informed about our progress and plans so we always knew what was going on. The most memorable part  of the expedition was standing in Shackleton's hut. The extension I did of New Zealand was incredible.

What a fantastic adventure! Too many great things to list.  Penguins, whale, seals sea lions, historic huts, sea ice, icebergs, mountains, glaciers, riding in the zodiacs, feeling the ship getting pounded by big waves and then having a few days of smooth seas, the unpredictable always changing weather, hiking through tussock grass, the great people on the ship (passengers from NZ, AU, UK, Netherlands, Germany and US), staff and crew . . .   One of the most interesting things I saw was the tall tussock grass bending over in the wind while sitting outside of the station on Macquarie Island

The service I've had from Expedition Trips has been the best I've yet encountered, prompt, efficient, the personal touch. The most memorable parts were the Ross Island / Terra Nova bay area where we visited Captain Scott's Cape Evans hut, Shackleton's Cape Royds hut, had a session on the sea ice, saw the Cape Bird penguin rookery, the Inexpressible Island site where the Scott 'Northern Expedition under Lt Campbell spent the winter of 1911-1912 in a snow hole, and our landing at Gondwana Base. Also a Zodiac trip round some impressive icebergs.
