Antarctic Peninsula Adventure - Akademik Ioffe
Sailing in comfort on board Akademik Ioffe, we chart a course through the Drake Passage and make visits along the way through the South Shetland Islands. When we arrive at the Antarctic Peninsula, be prepared to be dazzled. Even experienced crew members who have visited a hundred times or more are still astonished by its pristine beauty. Abundant wildlife includes five seal species, massive penguin colonies of gentoos, Adelies and chinstraps and a profusion of seabirds from albatross to skuas. It is nature you will experience up close and personal on frequent excursions inland. Our journey will take us to Petermann Island or Wilhelmina Bay where we encounter colossal icebergs and, of course, icy landscapes that stretch as far as the eye can see. Hardy adventurers have the chance to camp out on the ice overnight and feel the thrill and audacity of early explorers who attempted to conquer this continent.
