Exclusive 20 day Antarctic Cruise to view the total solar eclipse, also visiting Falklands, South Georgia & the Antarctic Peninsula
An incredible 20 day polar cruise holiday with an opportunity to witness the full solar eclipse in 2021 from the wide open space of the Antarctic Ocean. Beginning in Ushuaia we first sail across the Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula where we can set foot on the Antarctic Continent, then making our way slowly north via the South Shetland Islands and Deception Island we begin to get into place for the main event on December 4th. However, the solar eclipse is only half-way through this fantastic adventure. We still have South Georgia and the Falkland Islands to visit. Both these unique destinations are highlights for historians and nature lovers alike. We visit Shackleton’s grave surrounded by king penguins and elephant seals! Our 20 day adventure is all based from the HV Hondius, this ship makes the journey special in it's own right, a brand new vessel, she will set sail for the first time in 2019 and is seen as 'a new standard in polar exploration'. With the combination of the HV Hondius and the eclipse, this really will be a journey into the realms of the most beautiful and surreal places on earth.
