Q: What is the Ross Sea voyage like?

The Ross Sea in Antarctica is one of the most remote places on Earth. Due to heavy pack-ice cover for the biggest part of the year it is off the beaten tourist track of Antarctica. Only the strongest ice-strengthened ships are able to penetrate this high-Antarctic region.

The rewards are obvious; the Ross Sea possesses an abundant Antarctic wildlife, amazing scenery and exceptional artefacts from historic Antarctic expeditions. Some of the highlights are: huge colonies of Emperor and Adélie Penguins, Mount Erebus, the Ross Ice-shelf, the Dry Valleys, McMurdo Station, Cape Evans (hut of Scott) and Cape Royds (hut of Shackleton).
