    It is one of the greatest adventures of modern times: the semi-circumnavigation of Antarctica. A route through frozen landscapes and animal kingdoms, where humans are a marginal presence.

    South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula

    The Antarctic is an expedition region like no other. Semi-circumnavigating it really is something special for all those looking for an unforgettable experience. After 2017, the BREMEN will once again set off on this adventure, following an incredible route from South America to New Zealand. The captain and crew will adapt the flexible itinerary to the constantly changing conditions – for example, when you reach the South Shetland Islands. Towering basalt rocks, rugged volcanic rock and black volcanic beaches herald your arrival at an impressive destination: the Antarctic Peninsula. Icebergs, glaciers and majestic mountains – populated by penguins, seals and a whole variety of seabirds: here a small, manoeuvrable expedition ship such as the BREMEN can guarantee you an expedition you will never forget. Numerous Zodiac rides and landings will intensify the mood of discovery. The history of legendary pioneers will come to life on islands, in bays and in seas named after great explorers. Follow the pioneering spirit of James Clark Ross, Robert Falcon Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton on your expedition. Weather and ice permitting, the BREMEN will call at Neko Harbor, where you will marvel at the natural spectacle of the imposing foot of the glacier. Along wonderful icy panoramas populated by Weddell and fur seals, you will head for Paradise Bay, where icebergs drift. Perhaps some humpback whales will follow the ship through the Neumayer Channel, a labyrinthine strait of water framed by bizarre cliffs and an icy coast. In Port Lockroy, you will be greeted by gentoo penguins with their striking cry, and you can send extraordinary greetings back home from the world’s southernmost post office. Mountains up to 1,000 m (3,280 ft) high flank the narrow Lemaire Channel on one of seafaring’s most beautiful passages. Keep an eye out for gentoo and Adelie penguins and blue-eyed cormorants, whose colonies are on Petermann Island. Other ships would have long since given up, but the BREMEN crosses the Antarctic Circle and heads for further Antarctic experiences. It’s hard to imagine being a researcher in this isolated corner of the world. Prospect Point, with its remains of a hut and plaque, bears witness to this lonely job. With the highest ice class for passenger ships, the BREMEN forges a path to the most beautiful, seldom-visited regions, including Marguerite Bay and a 1960s British research station. On Stonington Island, you will discover how skuas and Antarctic terns have taken possession of the researchers’ abandoned base.

    Relaxation at sea (cruise through Bellingshausen Sea, Amundsen Sea and Ross Sea – 16.2 omitted due to crossing the International Date Line)

    The following days at sea beyond the Antarctic Circle will be shaped not only by fascinating expert presentations on board, but also by the golden age of Antarctic research. The BREMEN will cruise in the Bellingshausen Sea, the Amundsen Sea and the Ross Sea. These seas take their names from the daring explorers who travelled and traversed this remote region many years ago without modern technology, putting their lives on the line. And they may well have been impressed by similar views.

    Ross Island , Terra Nova Bay , Victoria Land

    The excitement builds on board: what are the ice conditions on the Ross Sea? The season is ideal, the timing perfect – how will the natural surroundings look? Will the BREMEN be able to navigate the pack ice and drifting ice to visit Ross Island? Will the weather and ice conditions allow us to land in legendary places such as Cape Royds? The area where Ernest Shackleton set up a base camp for his South Pole expedition in 1908 is now populated by penguins. Cape Evans, on the other hand, was the site of the Terra Nova expedition by Robert Falcon Scott, who set out to beat Roald Amundsen to the South Pole and never made it home. The American McMurdo Station will also bring the history of Antarctic exploration to life (subject to authorisation). In the shadow of the modern building and the mighty Mount Erebus stands the Discovery hut, which was built by Scott in 1902. More than ten years later, it played an important role as a base camp for Shackleton’s Endurance expedition – for the planned Antarctic crossing. With a little luck, you will spot emperor penguins and whales in this historically significant region. As you cruise off the fantastic backdrop of the Ross Ice Shelf, you will experience another indescribable highlight: this gigantic wall of ice, as high as a house, stretches over hundreds of kilometres. Victoria Land, in contrast, welcomes you with an endless expanse of space in Terra Nova Bay, which was discovered by Scott in 1901 and named after his ship. Today it is home to an Italian research station, among other things. In Cape Adare, you will come across the ruins of a hut that Borchgrevink built in 1899 and in which an expedition team spent a winter in the Antarctic for the first time. The spectacular natural surroundings are just as moving as the region’s past – including the largest colony of Adelie penguins in the Antarctic with over 250,000 breeding pairs!

    Balleny Islands/New Zealand

    In the southern Pacific Ocean, you will discover untouched island worlds barely known in our latitudes – true natural paradises that are home to a rich animal kingdom. The small, manoeuvrable BREMEN allows you to cruise as close as possible to the coast – even closer if the authorities permit us to land. The largely glaciated Balleny Islands provide a mystical setting. Observe Adelie and chinstrap penguins here.

    Campbell Island , Auckland Islands , Snares Islands/New Zealand

    The world’s largest colony of southern royal albatrosses can be found on Campbell Island. And on a Zodiac ride, you might be able to make out some elephant seals among the tussock grass. With grasslands, moors and dense ironwood forests, the Auckland Islands have the lushest flora of all the subantarctic islands. Here you will find both yellow-eyed penguins and New Zealand sea lions. The Snares penguin, meanwhile, is only found on the Snares Islands, where it lives alongside cape petrels and albatrosses among bizarre rock formations. This is one of the places where it becomes clear that by semi-circumnavigating the Antarctic, you are among the few people who have delved deep into the secrets of this far-flung region.
