Weddell Sea & Snow Hill

Watch the crew negotiate the heavy pack ice

For the ultimate experience join an ice-breaker voyage and explore seldom-visited and pristine wilderness areas of the Weddell Sea. Onboard our fantastic range of Antarctica cruise vessels you will experience a region that few others get to enjoy.

The goal will be to visit the Snow Hill, home to the only emperor penguin rookery, where you will enjoy sightseeing flights aboard expertly piloted helicopters or expeditions to walk near to the colonies.

The male penguins will have survived the harsh austral winter with many weeks without food, whilst incubating eggs with their feet and huddling together. It’s an amazing sight to see these enormous birds in such huge numbers.
