Board your ship in Hobart, Tasmania’s historical port town, and sail south to the Balleny Islands, a snow-covered wonderland of glaciated, volcanic islands and ice floes. See the historic huts at Cape Adare, iceberg dotted Terra Nova Bay and the massive Drygalski Ice Tongue. Expeditions take you to see McMurdo Station and Scott’s Discovery Hut and to survey the vast Ross Ice Shelf. After 23 days cruising through pack ice and glacier landings in search of remote penguin colonies return north via Coulman Island before eventually reaching Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island.
