Antarctica Discovery: Beyond the Antarctic Circle 2024


Starting at $21,495 US per person



Jan 19 - Feb 02, 2024

Join me, Michelle Valberg, on an extraordinary 18-day journey with Abercrombie & Kent's Luxury Expedition Cruise. We'll venture into the ethereal landscapes of Antarctica, marvelling at the towering icebergs, massive blue glaciers, and the mesmerizing beauty of this untouched wilderness. Together, we'll unlock the mysteries of the Southern Ocean, venturing beyond the Antarctic Circle, a path tread by very few explorers.

Onboard Abercrombie & Kent's luxurious mega-yacht, we'll spend 12 nights cruising across the Southern Ocean to the White Continent. We'll form an exclusive band of adventurers, daring to journey further into the captivating Antarctic Peninsula.

Our quest will introduce us to some of the world's most astounding wildlife. We'll seek out gentoo penguins, wandering albatrosses, leopard seals, orcas, and humpback whales, experiencing the magic of these creatures in their natural habitat.


We'll be accompanied by Abercrombie & Kent's award-winning Expedition Team, a group of over 18 experts who will enrich our experience with Zodiac excursions, informative lectures, and time on shore.

Our adventure begins even before we reach Antarctica, with a two-night stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This fiery Latin city is ours to explore, choosing the shore excursion that best satisfies our curiosity.

Come with me on this incredible journey, where we'll encounter nature at its most majestic, and create memories that will last a lifetime.


About Antarctica

Antarctica is a truly unique and awe-inspiring continent that stretches across the southernmost point of our planet. Characterized by its vast, icy landscapes and diverse wildlife, it's a place of stark, pristine beauty.


Virtually uninhabited by humans, it's the coldest, driest, and windiest continent, with temperatures that can drop below -80 degrees Celsius. Despite the harsh conditions, a variety of resilient wildlife thrives here, including several species of penguins, seals, and birds. Furthermore, Antarctica plays a crucial role in the Earth's climate system, with its ice sheets holding about 70% of the world's fresh water.


This unspoiled, remote wilderness is a hub for scientific research, with international teams conducting studies on climate change, wildlife, and geology. Visiting Antarctica provides a unique opportunity for exploration and discovery, offering a glimpse into the planet's ecological past and a potential window into its climate future.
