Expedition Antarctica - Cradle of life in the middle of the ice

from Ushuaia to Ushuaia

Cruise BRE1601

19.08.2018 - 19.08.2018

22 days (0 days cruise only)

    Witness how life develops in the ice from birth onwards. Whilst it is winter in Europe, the Antarctic summer transforms the fascinating ice world into the most exciting nursery in the world. Many different species of animals are busy bringing up their young. It’s a touching sight to see baby penguins gathering in their “nursery” and young seals, seabirds and elephant seals making their first discoveries of the sixth continent. The BREMEN will make it possible for you to have intense experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

    Falkland Islands

    A fascinating bird paradise - the Falkland Islands
    The Zodiac fleet will be lowered to the water for the first time to head for the Falkland Islands. During several landings, our experts will accompany you on hikes through the dwarf shrubs and grasses that are typical of the islands. Marvel at the head-high tussock grass and the diversity of the bird world, where rockhopper and Magellanic penguins bid you welcome; there is also a chance that black-bellied storm petrels, silver teal, albatrosses or peregrine falcons will suddenly appear before your very eyes. In Stanley, you will be welcomed to the small island capital with its very British charm.

    South Georgia

    South Georgia – realm of the king penguins
    Flexible, spontaneous and impressive: the Zodiacs are used several times a day to enable expeditionary experiences and wildlife sightings that take your breath away. Take standing in front of a gigantic colony of king penguins, for example. Hundreds of thousands of these animals populate the slopes and coasts of the island. During spectacular landings over three intensive days, including in Salisbury Plain and Gold Harbour, you will encounter fur seals and sedate elephant seals on the beaches along the craggy coastline, while black-browed albatrosses and giant petrels make their nests in among the rocks. Renowned experts, including biologists, geologists and glaciologists, will accompany you and add new dimensions to your unique natural experiences by revealing surprising details. Or they will bring to life the pioneering days of Antarctic research: in the former Grytviken whaling station, you will visit the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton and remember the heroic efforts with which this man once rescued his team.

    South Orkney Islands , Weddell Sea , South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula

    You will learn about the work of modern polar researchers on the South Orkney Islands, where, weather permitting, you will visit the oldest permanently inhabited research station in the Antarctic, the Argentinian Orcadas station (subject to authorisation). And with a little luck, you will have your first sighting of majestic icebergs off Signy Island.

    Breathtaking: Weddell Sea, South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula
    Your expedition takes a direct route to adventure through the Weddell Sea to Paulet Island. The ice crunches and cracks around the ship’s reinforced bow, while it becomes ever more apparent just what strains the pioneers of polar exploration had to endure. Where weather and ice conditions dictate the course, the experienced crew will react flexibly and spontaneously to guarantee you unforgettable moments in the wonderland of the Antarctic. The experience will make your day as the BREMEN continues on its southerly course. You can look forward, for example, to the caldera of Deception Island and the incomparable sight of Paradise Bay: glaciers tower hundreds of metres above and snow-covered mountains line the bay in which icebergs as high as houses float. The team of experts accompanying you will open up new fields of knowledge and will visit the Antarctic continent with you if the weather and ice conditions permit landing.

    One of the most impressive shipping passages in the world is the Lemaire Channel: mountains up to 1,000 m high line the strait of water and seem to be almost within reach as a mystical tranquillity prevails. The BREMEN will then head for the Penola Strait and set course for the most southerly point of your expedition. Where will it be? The end of your cruise will once again reveal to you the full beauty of the Antarctic: drifting icebergs, glaciated mountain summits – and with a bit of luck, you might spot a whale amongst the waves. Passage through the Neumayer-Kanal then serves up the grand finale with panoramic views of amazing glaciers. In the midst of icebergs as high as a house, it is easy to be amazed – and all the more difficult to take your leave.
