Walk on the Weddell Sea pack ice

​In spring, when the pack-ice in the Weddell Sea is still thick, you have the possibility to take a walk on the pack ice, in-between icebergs and penguins. With our strongest vessel, mv Ortelius we venture further into the Weddell Sea, in search of the illustrious Emperor Penguin.
