13-day Expedition

Antarctica Classic in Depth

Antarctica Classic in Depth.from $9,899.00pp

Depart Ushuaia | G Expedition Ship

Like the G Adventures “Antarctica Classic” tour, this 13-day expedition introduces you to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula but adds on two additional days to better explore its majesty.

Part of the reward of arriving in Antarctica is the challenge of negotiating the Drake Passage — and the G Expedition will bring you there safely.

Encounter leopard seals lazing on ice floes and immense rookeries of penguins surrounded by towering glaciers.

The G Expedition’s expert guides and lecturers offer knowledge and insight that bring the nature and history of the region to life, creating the adventure of a lifetime.
