September 28, 2017 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Come in search of Australian Antarctic history from the heroic era of exploration. Katabatic winds and ice conditions are sure to influence the itinerary. Travelling at the most favourable time of the Antarctic summer and with an unprecedented 10 days exploring this region of Antarctica allows true expedition style flexibility, enhancing your chances of landing at Cape Denison and stepping inside Mawson’s Hut.

Don’t worry this voyage is not all history and old huts. 7 days exploring the sub-Antarctic Islands, particularly Macquarie Island, presents unimaginable wildlife experiences. Known as the Galapagos of the Southern Ocean, Macquarie Island is home to rugged landscapes, rustic outstations, unique flora and a number of the world’s most iconic species including; King penguins, Elephant seals and the Wandering albatross. While in Antarctica you will be on the lookout for whales, Orca and of course, Adelie and Emperor penguins.

iExpedition’s Polar specialist Ben Alexander, says: “Expeditions to Commonwealth Bay are best undertaken in January to coincide with optimal ice conditions, providing the highest chances of being able to successfully land at Cape Denison, the site of Mawson’s Hut and the pinnacle of our expedition.”

Exceptionally priced to include an additional 4 days cruise at no extra cost, plus receive AUD$750 per person flight credit, it’s unlikely that this unique itinerary will be available again.
