Towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes, massive icebergs and the option to choose your favourite activities every day make this voyage the perfect introduction to the white continent. In the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, we spend our days off the ship exploring by Zodiac boat, making shore landings in the company of our expert guides. By breaking into small special interest groups, we discover Antarctica and its remarkable wildlife through photography, Zodiac excursions, hiking onshore, and for the more adventurous, camping and sea kayaking. Visits to historic huts and working research bases add another dimension to the voyage.
Artist in Residence David McEown will conduct workshops Inspired by the Antarctic land and seascapes, plus wildlife encounters. Also you will explore watercolour’s magical flowing spontaneity and learn essential techniques as you paint directly from nature. Enhance your colour and spacial perception and way of “seeing” with this travel friendly medium.
