It has been announced that Sir Ranulph Fiennes will attempt the first ever trans-Antarctic winter expedition this December.
With temperatures dropping to a chilly -70C it will be a voyage that goes down in history and with Transun holiday-goers can have an Antarctic adventure of their own.
Transun’s Antarctic cruises take you to some of the few genuinely remote travel destinations left on earth letting you follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s greatest explorers like Scott and Shackleton.
Discover a land of unsurpassed beauty and majesty as you pass by icebergs and fjords, coming face to face with iconic emperor penguins, humpback whales and albatrosses.
South Georgia is a dream destination for polar cruising connoisseurs with its abandoned whaling station and the grave site of legendary explorer Ernest Shackleton.
For those in search of a once in a lifetime experience, don’t miss the British research station at Port Lockroy on Goudier Island. Half the island is open to tourists, while the other half is reserved for penguins!
Transun offer their Antarctic cruises between October and March, with various routes available. Prices start from £5,995pp for a 13-night itinerary, including international flights, two nights’ accommodation in Ushuaia and a nine night Antarctic Peninsula cruise departing from Buenos Aires.
