23rd November – 12th December 2021This ship follows the path of courageous explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton – just in the opposite direction from Ushuaia to the wildlife paradise of South Georgia. From here to the eclipse path and onward to the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. We will skirt the periphery of the Weddell Sea, the birthplace of the mighty tabular icebergs, and cruise close to Shackleton’s harsh winter-camp on the shore of Elephant Island.
