Sailing from Dunedin in New Zealand on board Le Soléal, start in Campbell Island, part of
New Zealand’s Sub Antarctic Islands, and discover the island’s spectacular endemic flora and
fauna, including six species of albatross.


Whilst you enjoy some time at sea and take advantage of talks and lectures on board by your
team of expedition guides, be prepared to reach the Ross Sea, the Southernmost sea on Earth.
Alongside your expedition team, you will have the privilege of exploring this fascinating
region and learn all about its history and natural environment, all in one of the most pristine,
spectacular settings. Observe the largest Adelie penguin rookeries in the world, sail past
gigantic icebergs and thundering glaciers during a Zodiac® excursion, or spot Weddell Seals
as they relax or hunt on ice flows.


You will have the chance to visit historic buildings including Sir Ernest Shackleton’s hut at
Cape Royds and reflect on the heroic polar journeys of some of the world’s most intrepid polar
explorers.


On your way back, enjoy some time on Australia’s Macquarie Island, and its impressive colony
of king penguins, before disembarking in Hobart. A truly memorable adventure not many have
the chance to experience!
