Best choice: the trip from february to march, at the end of antarctic summer. We reached Ross Sea and McMurdo Sound, we got to McMurdo Antarctic Station by helicopter, we went shopping there and had coffee and cookies in the bar. And we visited the southernmost church in the world, Chapel of the Snows. We reached mars-like Taylor Valley with helicopter, visited 2 historic huts and 2 summer stations, watched table icebergs at dusk ... We visited Vernadsky Station from where we could send postcards. Very beautiful: Penola Strait and Lemaire Channel. Bright weather, scenic flight with helicopter in Andvord Bay - fascinating. And many penguins, seals, orcas ... Fantastic. Excellent trip. Very interesting lectures, nice films. Nice cabin (twin window) on Deck 5.
